Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

There are no real definitions of lead vs. supporting performers; the Emmy rules leave it up to the nomination submitters to decide how to classify themselves, with the caveat that the awards committee determines final eligibility. It ends up being a tactical decision as much as anything else: i.e., Dinklage and Paul were probably felt more likely to win as supporting than as lead.
