Tyrion Or Tywin? The 8 Toughest In-Show 2014 Emmy Decisions

The 2014 Emmy nominees won’t be announced until July 10th, at which point we can bitch about Jim Parsons and the lack of Walton Goggins (AGAIN). But that’s still a few weeks away, so all we can do right now is pore over the “nominating ballots,” which are already available online. They’re interesting to look at, because it gives you a sense of the episodes and performers your favorite shows are most proud of (for instance, only two Louie episodes were submitted for Outstanding Writing For a Comedy Series: “So Did The Fat Lady” and “Pamela 3,” which hasn’t even aired yet). We’ll have full Emmy predictions soon, but until then, let’s have a look at some of the toughest in-show decisions. What I mean by that is, instead of stressing out over ALL of the nine dozen worthy Outstanding Supporting Actor In a Drama Series nominees, I’m focusing on which Lannister will be represented. It’s a win-win.
