Congrats to Game of Thrones on Making Emmy History for Most Awards Ever

013

EW – It’s now official: Game of Thrones has won more Emmys than any primetime TV show ever.

 

The HBO fantasy drama won three awards at the 68th annual Emmy Awards on Sunday night, pushing its lifetime total number of awards to 38 – one more than Frasier, the previous all-time record holder.

 

Thrones picked up awards for best writing in a drama series, best directing in a drama series, and best drama on Sunday night. Overall, Thrones won 12 Emmys this year, out of 23 total nominations.

 

The series already became the most-honored drama series after picking up nine Emmys at the Creative Arts ceremony last weekend, surpassing longtime title holders Hill Street Blues and The West Wing. By scoring another three awards Sunday, Thrones becomes the only primetime scripted series to ever have won this many awards.

The 11 Best ‘Game Of Thrones’ Couples

Ranked From Somewhat Adorable To Downright Lovable

 

BUSTLE – Game of Thrones may gravitate toward ruthless stabbings and the occasional beheading, but underneath all that bloodshed lies the heart of some truly epic love stories. Naturally, many of those said love stories tend to take a backseat due to all of the other tens of thousands of storylines going on, but they’re still there nonetheless and help to make the HBO series the hit success that it is. Granted, even the best Game of Thrones couples have faced their fair share of ups and downs, most of which have ended due to death or betrayal. But hey, when you live in an area like Westeros, that’s the risk everyone kinda has to take.

 

So who are these mystery duos, you may ask, who have pierced our hearts with their inspiring and, at times, intoxicating romances? I suppose everyone’s opinion on the matter would vary slightly, depending upon your tastes in TV love interests. But on the whole, there are certain Game of Thrones couples that inarguably reign supreme over all others, regardless of your own personal prejudices. No one on this show is perfect. Far from it, actually. However, certain couples manage to get pretty dark close. So without further adieu, here is my official ranking of the top 11 GoT couples, ranked from least to most.

 

4. Brienne Of Tarth & Tormund Giantsbane

 

 

So they aren’t an actual couple yet. SUE ME! It’s bound to happen and based on the chemistry we’ve seen between them already, it’s going to be amazing.

Game of Thrones: The Complete Sixth Season coming to DVD/Blu-ray this fall!

WATCHERS ON THE WALL – Hot on the heels of HBO’s confirmation of the Game of Thrones season 7 episode count and summer premiere, we have exciting news about the home release of the sixth season!

 

HBO announced today that Game of Thrones: The Complete Sixth Season will be available for download on Digital HD on August 1st, 2016. And not only can we look forward to the digital release, but the Blu-ray™ and DVDs will also be available this year, much earlier than we usually would expect. Instead of being released in advance of the new season as we’ve grown used to, Game of Thrones: The Complete Sixth Season will be available on Blu-ray™ & DVD on November 15th, 2016. Just in time for the holidays!

 

According to HBO, each set contains all ten episodes plus bonus content including:

Game of Thrones: HBO announces summer return, 7 episodes

HBO makes it official: Emmy favorite to return later with shortened 7th season

 

EW – Summer is coming.

 

HBO is officially confirming some major changes for Game of Thrones.

 

Season 7 of the fantasy sensation will not return until summer 2017 – pushing back from the show’s usual strategy of premiering each edition of the series in the spring (typically April).

 

Also, the network is confirming for the first time that next edition will consist of seven episodes (a pull back from the show’s usual 10 hours).

 

Plus, HBO added that the next season will be shot in Northern Ireland, Spain, and Iceland. It’s been a couple years since the Thrones team used Iceland for significant shooting, having primarily used the location for North of the Wall scenes when Jon Snow was embedded with the Wildlings camp.

 

“Now that winter has arrived on Game of Thrones, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual, when the weather is changing,” said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming. “Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule.”

 

Benioff and Weiss also recently told the UFC Unfiltered podcast that production was getting a later start this year to film in wintery locations, which prompted speculation that the show’s return date might also be pushed. “We’re starting a bit later because at the end of this season, ‘Winter is here’ — and that means that sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes any more. So we kind of pushed everything down the line, so we could get some grim grey weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot.” (Usually the show begins production in July).

 

The producers have previously told EW they wanted to cap the hit series at 73 hours, with seven episodes next year, and six in an eighth-and-final season. (“We’ve known for several years now how many hours, roughly, we want it to go, it hasn’t changed,” Benioff said.) HBO has not yet confirmed anything about season 8, however, so that part of their plan is not yet official.

 

Thrones has managed to ratchet up its production values with each season, and having fewer episodes will likely allow more time for the team to polish every hour of the show. The producers have tapped directors Alan Taylor, Jeremy Podeswa, Mark Mylod, and Matt Shakman for next season.

 

Thrones season 6 broke HBO ratings records once again with episodes averaging more than 23 million viewers, including streaming, repeats and DVR playback The drama was also nominated for 23 primetime Emmys last week, more than any of other series for the third year running.

2016 Television Critics Association Awards nominations

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.

‘Game of Thrones’ S6 Finale Trailer Promises: “You’re in the Great Game Now”

Even though she’s not shown in the trailer, she’s listed in the ep on IMDB so hopefully Brienne will return to Winterfell (or bump into Jaime again!)

 

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTERThe preview for 2016’s final episode of ‘Thrones’ teases the wars to come.

 

“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.”

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Talks Jaime, Brienne And Tormund’s Love Triangle

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.
