Better Call Saul Fans Prepare For Another Heartbreak as Internet Claims House of the Dragon Star Paddy Considine Might Steal the Emmy From Bob Odenkirk Yet Again

Paddy Considine is likely to win the Emmy instead of Bob Odenkirk.

Better Call Saul fans are probably one more loss away from breaking down now.

Rumor has it that the House of the Dragon star, Paddy Considine who plays the character of King Viserys in the show, is most likely going to be bagging an Emmy for Best Actor. However, this dwindles the chances of Bob Odenkirk winning the award for his amazing performance in Better Call Saul, and fans of the latter are deeply upset about the mere possibility.

The whole situation is especially a difficult one because both the actors are extremely talented and have exceeded the expectations of their fans through their shows. The only question is, who will end up taking it home.

Rumors claim Paddy Considine will win the Emmy over Bob Odenkirk

Ever since the release of the prequel to Game of Thrones, Paddy Considine has delivered a killer performance as Viserys episode after episode. And no matter how devastating episode 8 of House of the Dragon was, the Targaryen king’s death left a rather heavy imprint on the audience.

Even though Viserys’ health had been deteriorating rapidly, his character was no short of courage, and had always been portrayed as someone with immense willpower, his mental strength in a stark yet captivating contrast with his physical vulnerability.

The latest episode of the fantasy drama series sent fans off the edge with the blow of King Viserys death as well as his remarkable performance. In fact, the episode was such a hit that fans are already convinced that Considine is bound to not only earn the Emmy nomination for Best Actor, but is undoubtedly going to win it as well.

However, whilst House of the Dragon fans are celebrating the possibility of the Hot Fuzz star winning such a revered accolade, Better Call Saul fans are busy drowning in grief instead.

Better Call Saul fans are rooting for Bob Odenkirk to win the award

Fans of the crime/drama television series are already aggrieved by Bob Odenkirk‘s rightful award getting snubbed at the 2022 Primetime Emmy Awards. Neither the series nor any of the cast members received a single award this year. And now, the rumors about House of the Dragon‘s Considine winning the next year’s Emmy aren’t exactly proving to be consoling either.

Bob Odenkirk, who plays Saul Goodman in the show, is a particular favorite amongst fans, and him not getting the recognition he truly deserves in the form of an Emmy is not only infuriating, but disappointing as well.

To say that it’s a tough battle between the two stars would be an understatement.

While Odenkirk’s acting skills are absolutely commendable, Considine’s talent is just as unrivalled as the former’s. And it looks like people are facing the same uncertainty as they try to weigh out the pros and cons of both the actors on Twitter to see who is more deserving. However, most of them are pretty sure about who they want to win.

While some House of the Dragon fans are torn between Considine and Odenkirk as they also happen to admire the latter, others are quite sure on their stance as to who should win the award.

Regardless of how tough a decision this is going to be, one thing’s for sure, that both the actors are two of the finest and their skills are unmatched.

Besides, only time will tell who the recipient of the award is going to be. But whoever it might be out of the two, they’re just as deserving as the other.

House of the Dragon is available for streaming on HBO Max.
