With Handmaid’s Tale’s myriad females out of the running due to the drama’s delayed third season, the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama race is shaping up to be a sequel to the Battle of Kings Landing, with Game of Thrones villainess Lena Headey potentially facing off against onscreen rivals Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Gwendoline Christie.

For the record, 2019 Emmy nominations will be voted on from June 10-24, and unveiled on July 16. The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony is scheduled to air Sunday, Sept. 22 on Fox.
