Seriously though, it essentially concedes that Game of Thrones is a show wtihout
a lead, it's a true ensemble series in a way few dramas are.
I'm more curious how Aaron Paul is considered supporting.
Because there can only be one
lead actor, and that's still Bryan Cranston. Sure this can be arbitrary sometimes - I suppose Anita Gunn could try to get nominated for lead actress, and I don't think many would say she's more important to the show than Paul - but them's the breaks.
