Live Poll: 2017 Emmy Pairs

This year's Emmy nominations were announced and like every year, there were many interesting factors. 

Two performances from the same series have received the nominations in the same category. In all such cases, both actors were equally important and deserved the nomination. It must be tough to pick just one. 

Which would be the toughest choice for you, if you were to pick the winner between these pairs?

I concur Tony Hale and Matt Walsh for "Veep"

Great poll suggestion, Whereas, the pairs work on the same series you may want to consider an image poll with photos of the pairs. It would be better than a people based poll.


Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon for "Big Little Lies"



Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin for "Grace and Frankie"

Thanks for the suggestion!

Even I thought the same before making it a people based poll, I couldn't find a photo of Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia from "This is Us". 

Would this be okay? What do you think?-

Yes, I think it would be okay to compromise on a few with a extra person in the shot, or a solo shot, or even a behind the scenes or publicity/press shot.

If you can do 75% of images that are perfect, I think it okay to make allowances on the last 25%. You can always do an image search with both the title and actors plus characters name to get that percentage down. If they are on the same show, there is definitely going to be a picture out there somewhere. Sometimes you can find the ideal image hidden in the actors photos because it was tagged with only an episode title and not with the series tag or any title tag at all. I did a quick search and couldn't find them in a scene together either. But,  I found this image http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0893257/mediaviewer/rm2147747072  in http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0893257/mediaindex?ref_=nm_mv_sm

I had a similar issue for a "Game of Throne" P.S. where Jon Snow & Daenerys Targaryen was an answer option.Yet, despite being the stars and the show has run seven seasons Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke have yet to have a scene together. I used this publicity shot instead.

FYC This should help. some are imperfect

Hi.

I have made this list, with some your suggestions and few of my additions. I have purposefully added more than one photo for a choice, in order to know your views.-

http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068931060/#1


There's one problem though. I couldn't find an image for Bill Camp and Michael Kenneth Williams for "The Night Of". There wasn't a single shot where they could be together. Besides I couldn't even find the promotional campaign photos.

#1Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown  http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068931060/#1 is better than #2 http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068931060/#2 with just the pair

#7 Ann Dowd, Samira Wiley  http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068931060/#7  is good enough unless you find something better

#8Tony Hale, Matt Walsh   http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0909768/mediaviewer/rm2952342528 is better than  #8 http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068931060/#8 with just the pair.

#9Judith Light, Kathryn Hahn http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068931060/#9 this version they both face forward, thus better than #10 http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068931060/#10

#11 Alfred Molina, Stanley Tucci   http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5719564/mediaviewer/rm1425615872 this version is just the brighter and larger, thus better than #11 http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068931060/#11

#12 Judy Davis, Jackie Hoffman http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068931060/#12 is good enough unless you find something better, you can replace latter with an Emmy shot of them posing together.

#13 Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley   http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4817386/mediaviewer/rm1341729792 is better than #13 http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068931060/#13 and #14 http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068931060/#14  with just the pair.

#15 use  a Michael Kenneth Williams solo image as they like have no scenes together you can replace latter with an Emmy shot of them posing together
Bill Camp with Michael Kenneth Williams solo images only
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0931324/mediaviewer/rm3531947520
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0131966/mediaviewer/rm2212171264

It's ok if you compromise on few, but I uploaded a couple you have overlooked and now are available that are better for your purpose.
Tony Hale, Matt Walsh
Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley

My favorite pair of performances is John Turturro and Riz Ahmed but which pair would be most difficult to choose between is a tougher question, which makes for a good poll. 'Perhaps Sarandon and Lange -- I didn't see the series but both are such consistently high-caliber actors. (It'd be a good poll with either question, by the way.)
