1. Peter Dinklage - he was even greater this season
2. Charles Dance - I hate his character, but man, he nailed it
3. Tom Wlaschiha - wow, I never thought his scenes would be that cooool
As for ladies:
1. Lena Headey - one word, perfection
2. Maisie Williams - she is embodied Arya so well
3. Sophie Turner - I really liked Sophie this season, and I think she deserves a nod
Everybody else, wait for your turn next season...

I would love to see these actors be nominated but i doubt they will.
Alfie Allen - Theon Greyjoy
Maisie Williams - Arya Stark
Charles Dance - Tywin Lannister
Lena Headly was excellent but I doubt she will get nominated

I really hope that she gets nominated.
Peter Dinklage was very good as usual and I hope he wins again. The black water speech and talk with Shae were brilliant on their own alone IMO

But unfortunately the academy hasn't been too generous when it comes to nominating child actors (the academy has never given the primetime award to an actor under 18 in a series: The youngest to get a nomination was Claire Danes at 16. Roxana Zal did win a primetime Emmy at 14, but that was for a TV movie). And it's a pity that the academy screeners don't include her scenes with Dance (their campaign package only includes the first two episodes). However, it would be fantastic if the academy at least gave Maisie a nod.
Who I hope will get a nomination (based on HBO's submissions):
- Maisie Williams
One of the standouts in the strong ensemble cast.
- Alfie Allen
Of those submitted for consideration, I think Alfie Allen has been the most impressive this year, apart from Dinklage.
- Emilia Clarke:
I haven't been too impressed by Emilia this season, but she appears among the top 10 (100/1 odds) on GoldDerby, so her chances of being nominated (although slim) seems relatively good compared to the other submissions.
- Lena Headey:
I personally think Headey has made a stronger impression this season and some of her scenes have been very good indeed. I wouldn't be too surprised if Lena was nominated instead of Emilia (she doesn't appear on any expert/editor lists on GoldDerby, but her listed odds are the same as Emilia's).
- Peter Dinklage:
He won last year in the same category, but I still think he has a much better chance of being nominated than Alfie Allen. He's listed first on the odds list.

LOL, so true

I feel kind of weird saying that, though, since at the same time I've been concerned that the HBO series is pulling punches with the character, where in the book the character is much darker. But the actress did an great job.
The portrayal of Stannis has been awesome, so kudos to Steven Dillane for that.
Alfie Allen was impressive as Theon, Nicolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime, and Sophie Turner as Sansa.
In smaller roles, my favourites from season 2 were Tom Wlaschila as Jaqen, Conleth Hill as Varys, and Rory McCann as the Hound.
Honourable mention to Jack Gleeson as Joffrey - you can't help but hate him.

Emilia's acting in the Red Waste is some of the best in the series IMO. I think she does an amazing job considering that Dany has been constantly evolving since episode 1. Kit Harrington is pretty good too, although I thought he was much better in the first season. I guess that could just be because Jon is a more interesting character in the first season, though.
