    Srsly Sam Heughan for best supporting actor when he had 2x the screen time that Tobias Menzies had? smh

  • Cristina Campelo

    Sam Heughan as best supporting actor? Is this a mistake, or are you joking?

  • i don’t understand why Tobias isn’t the supporting actor.. Sam is the male lead in this series .. but.. congrats to all of them for the noms.

  • Outlandishly_hooked

    Let’s not diminish any actor’s contribution. Sam and Tobias are both very talented actors and Outlander wouldn’t be the same without either of them. Congratulations to all the winners.

  • Jody A Fraser

    Outlander should win all of these, but I do think they have the lead actor and supporting actor mixed up. Sam should be lead and Tobias supporting..just saying….

  • joanne

    I’m so confused, why is Sam the supporting actor when clearly he is the lead actor,
    it’s nothing against Tobias, surely they got it wrong.
    It’s like saying Caitriona is the supporting actress and Lotte is the lead, don’t make
    sense.

  • Cara Catanzaro Rule

    Please tell us you have Lead and Supporting Actor mixed up for Outlander!

  • Carole Ahmadi

    Sam Heughan should receive the best actor award with Tobias Menzies as best supporting actor. Sam has brought Jamie Fraser to life with superb performances
    every episode. If Sam does not win there is something wrong with the voting system.
