EW – With Emmy season in full swing, the Television Critics Association has announced the roster of nominees for its 32nd annual awards ceremony, boosting HBO and FX to the top of the pack with 12 and 11 overall nominations, respectively.
While HBO and FX lead in total nominations, USA’s Mr. Robot, a first-time nominee, garnered the most individual nods for a series (tied with FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), earning recognition in Individual Achievement in Drama (Rami Malek), Outstanding New Program, Outstanding Achievement in Drama, and Program of the Year.
Elsewhere in Program of the Year, HBO scored a nomination for Game of Thrones, while FX landed three series amid the category’s seven slots: Fargo, The Americans, and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Lifetime’s UnREAL and Netflix’s Making a Murderer round out the list of Program of the Year contenders.
The CW also made a strong showing with the TCA, earning three total nominations for its Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, including in Individual Achievement in Comedy (Rachel Bloom) and Outstanding New Program. It’s worth noting that each of the nominees in the latter category come from smaller networks, as series from the usual suspects like ABC, HBO, and other major TV players are noticeably absent. WGN America (Underground), Netflix (Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Masters of None), USA (Mr. Robot), and Lifetime (UnREAL), however, picked up the slack.
“The Winds of Winter” is almost upon us, though not in the way many book readers anticipated.
The final episode of Game of Thrones season six shares its name with the upcoming sixth installment of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novel series on which the show is based — a book that as of yet does not have a release date, and a book saga that’s now several storylines behind the pace of the TV series. As of Sunday night’s “Battle of the Bastards,” however, fans finally caught their first glimpse of the show’s version of “The Winds of Winter,” thanks to the preview for the episode … and with it comes all the frosty ferocity promised in the title.
The preview begins in King’s Landing, as Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) dress themselves in isolation. The High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce) speaks out: “Are you prepared to stand trial and profess your innocence before the Seven?” Cersei probably isn’t prepared for trial, but knowing her, she has other plans brewing. Her brother Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), meanwhile, is seen standing before Walder Frey (David Bradley) at the Twins, who makes an announcement: “The Freys and the Lannisters send their regards.” Loaded words, and ominous ones.
In the North, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), are once again the proud owners of Winterfell, and vow to “trust each other. We have so many enemies.” One man who rides the line between friend and foe is Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen), who approaches Sansa at one point in the preview when asked what he wants: “I thought you knew what I wanted.” Elsewhere in Winterfell, Jon deals with his own difficulties, as Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) approaches with Melisandre (Carice van Houten) in tow, wanting to out the Red Woman’s role in killing Shireen Baratheon (Kerry Ingram).The preview begins in King’s Landing, as Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) dress themselves in isolation.

All the way in Meereen, a victorious Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) deals with the aftermath of her own great battle, fielding advice from both Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman) — “Are you afraid? Good,” he tells her — and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), who essentially summarizes the entire series in 12 words.
“You’re in the great game now,” he says, “and the great game is terrifying.”

DESIGN & TREND – “Game of Thrones” actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau thinks that Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) and Tormund’s (Kristofer Hivju) pairing is a one-sided romance.
In an interview with IGN following the airing of last Sunday’s episode, Coster-Waldau revealed what he thinks of the much talked-about Brienne and Tormund’s interactions earlier in the season.
“I saw this image, I think Gwen posted it. There was this beautiful image of Brienne and Tormund where they were like Kate and Leo from ‘Titanic.’ [But it] seemed to me quite one-sided,” said Coster-Waldau who plays Jaime Lannister on the show. “I think Tormund is more into it than she is — or maybe I’m getting protective about the Jaime situation. I’m already being jealous on his behalf.”
As fans know, the “Jaime situation” Coster-Waldau was referring to was the unspoken love between Jaime and Brienne, who were reunited in last Sunday’s episode.
I’ve included this interview with Nikolaj just because he talks about the scenes with Jaime and Brienne.
TV LINE – Jaime and Brienne’s reunion in Sunday’s Game of Thrones may not have taken place in a steaming bath, but star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says that doesn’t mean there wasn’t plenty going on under the surface.
The characters hadn’t seen each other since the fourth episode of Season 4, when the Kingslayer gave the lady knight his sword, Oathkeeper, as she set off to find Sansa Stark. Prior to that, they’d survived capture by Bolton forces, near-rape, the loss of a hand, near-mauling by a bear and, of course, the aforementioned Bath of Confession. So yeah, there were feelings aplenty between the two — even though, as the actor points out, “Clearly it’s something they can’t act on.”
We wanted to hear what else Coster-Waldau had to say about such a momentous scene — and how it’s all likely to bite Cersei’s twin in the behind when his final Lannister debt is paid. Read on to hear the actor’s thoughts on “No One” and the final two episodes of Season 6.
TVLINE | I was just so happy to have Jaime and Brienne in the same room in this week’s episode.
Well, so was I!
TVLINE | What were your thoughts when you found out the interaction was on its way?
I was excited that finally they would meet. In the books, of course now we’re off book, but the last thing that’s still a part of the original books is this meeting between the two. But it’s quite different than in the book, because there’s a whole different storyline that’s not in the show. So when I read the script, I was excited. I thought it was a great scene. And I was excited to get to work with Gwendoline Christie again. We’ve had a lot of fun over the years.
TVLINE | We’ve talked before about how Jaime might’ve had feelings for Brienne — high esteem, respect, perhaps affection — but he hasn’t been able to put them into words. He’s acted on them, certainly, but this scene is the first time they’ve actually talked about some of them. Is this the most comfortable they can be talking about their friendship, given who they are?
“It’s that thing when two people are attracted to each other,” says Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Warning: This post contains spoilers for the sixth season of Game of Thrones.
TIME – The eighth episode of Game of Thrones‘ sixth season saw the emotional reunion of Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth, a duo who quickly became a fan-favorite during their journey across Westeros. Although the two have been separated since early in season four, many viewers have long rooted for a romance between them, a story arc the show seems to purposely avoid directly addressing.
Luckily, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau — who plays Jaime in the HBO drama — has finally cleared up some of the confusion. In two post-episode interviews, the 45-year-old actor spoke about the true nature of his character’s relationship with Brienne. “It’s a great scene,” he told Entertainment Weekly of their reunion. “These characters are so much about holding their cards so close to their chest and they don’t want to reveal how they’re feeling. But we know there’s history between them, that this is more than two knights meeting. But they would never acknowledge that.”
