Poppy Awards 2016: Melissa McBride and Sophie Turner face off
The EW Poppy Awards are well underway! With two weeks left to vote for your favorite Emmy-snubbed shows and actors, we have a quick poll update. Reminder: Polls close on Friday, Sept. 9, so don’t forget to cast your votes in the drama and limited series/movie categories.
- Best Series, Drama: Outlander, last year’s EWwy winner in this category, is battling it out with newcomer Jessica Jones. At this point, the race appears to be between these two, but which will take home the Poppy?
- Best Actress, Drama: Outlander‘s Caitriona Balfe, another winner from 2015, has met her match in Bates Motel’s Vera Farmiga, who is close behind.
- Best Actor, Drama: With The Walking Dead‘s Andrew Lincoln pretty firmly in first place, the second place race is the one to watch with The Blacklist‘s James Spader and Hannibal‘s Hugh Dancy.
- Best Supporting Actress, Drama: At this point, it’s a race between The Walking Dead‘s Melissa McBride and Game of Thrones‘ Sophie Turner. However, we wouldn’t count out Orange Is The New Black‘s Uzo Aduba just yet.
- Best Supporting Actor, Drama: There are three candidates still firmly in this race: Jessica Jones‘ David Tennant, Mr. Robot‘s Christian Slater, and Kingdom‘s Jonathan Tucker. Additionally, The Good Wife‘s Alan Cumming is not far behind in fourth place.
- Best Limited Series/Movie: American Horror Story: Hotel is definitely the early frontrunner, but Show Me a Hero and Flesh and Bone are within 2 percent of each other for second place.
- Best Actress, Limited Series/Movie: Unless you want Lady Gaga to win for her time on American Horror Story: Hotel, you might want to start voting.
- Best Actor, Limited Series/Movie: Fargo‘s Patrick Wilson and Show Me a Hero‘s Oscar Isaac are neck-and-neck for the top spot.
- Best Supporting Actress, Limited Series/Movie: And we have a tie! Sherlock‘s Amanda Abbington and Fargo‘s Cristin Milioti are evenly matched.
- Best Supporting Actor, Limited Series/Movie: Will it be AHS star Denis O’Hare or Sherlock‘s Martin Freeman. Right now, it could go either way.
Keep voting and remember that the winners will be announced on Tuesday, Sept. 13.
