Game of Thrones Season 4 Top performances

9. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister

Best Moment: There are several instances of great acting on display by Coster-Waldau, but most importantly he plays a character that seems to always be pulling for the “right” thing, but he is still pretty despicable regarding his relationship with Cersei. There has been a dramatic arc between the handsome, cocky man in season one who pushed Bran out the window, to the sympathetic, one-handed man, we see now.

7. Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark

Best Moment: When she delivers the hell out of a lie to save Littlefinger. Sansa has constantly played the harmless victim since the beginning. We’ve seen Sophie Turner cry and weep for her lost family, and just seem pathetic and sad. But what was impressive was to see how she was able to collect her sorrow and use it to her advantage. Letting us all know that she is now officially in the “game.”

3. Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen

Best Moment: There were several moments where Clarke shined, however her performance calls for more subtlety as she tries to become a strong leader. She was also just morally wrong a lot of times in this season. She was often hypocritical, regarding her mercy upon the slaves and to her banishing of Jorah. A moment that stands out is when she is asked to be merciful to the slave-owners and demands that they suffer the same fate as the crucified slaves, another moment may be the finale where she locked her dragons in the tomb, and how devastating that was for her. She is losing control.

2. Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister

Best Moment: Any raw emotional outburst from Cersei demands a strong performance from Headey, and she delivers every time. There were multiple occasions of great acting on display from her, a moment that sticks out is in the finale when she stands up to her father revealing the truth about her and Jaime.

1. Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister

Best Moment: The Trial where the episode closes with Tyrion being betrayed by his former lover Shae and he delivers a very emotional monologue followed by declaring that his trial be a trial by combat. From his conviction, every moment Dinklage was on-screen you felt the emotions that Tyrion was feeling: anger, hopelessness, betrayal.

mods I submitted this yesterday but it was neither accepted or rejected. I never got a rejection in my email. Could I at least get an email if there's something wrong with this?
