    Best Drama

    Best Main Title Design

    Drama Lead Actor: Sean Bean
    Drama Lead Actress: Lena Headey
    Drama Supporting Actor: Mark Addy, Peter Dinklage, Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, Aiden Gillen, Kit Harington, and Jason Momoa
    Drama Supporting Actress: Emilia Clarke and Michelle Fairley

    Nominations announced July 14. Ceremony Sept. 18.

    Main Title Design is pretty much a lock, and I can't believe they won't at least get a nom for Casting. They shoulda submitted Ep. 5 for Best Prosthetic Makeup just for Lysa's tit.

    If Dinklage doesn't get nominated, all the voters should be crowned.

    for real. That dude makes the show. It's a shame he couldn't get a more than a supporting actor nod.

    I do hope HBO doesn't pull a Carnivale, Deadwood, Rome, etc and pull the plug on this show too early.
    There was no choice but to end Rome. They began the second season with the intention of comressing a shitload of time and ending with death of Mark Antony. There was nowhere for the show to go after that. Ceasar Augustus' rule was long relatively boring. Shit didn't get interesting again until after way him, when all the show's characters would be long dead.

    Yeah, good point. Rome isn't a good example. The other two are.

    Nice way to end the last episode. Last one should be all out with a cliffhanger ending that will piss us all off, and please us. Typical of HBO, those genius bastards.

    If Season 1 ends the same way the first book ends, Episode 10 will be a humdinger.

    I love this show so fucking much. I hope anyone who still has misgivings about watching an epic fantasy show will just stfu and watch it already. I'm reading ahead in the book, and I'm really excited to see how the last episode plays out on the show.

    What is the phrase? "Baller ass midget"? Peter Drinklage is so amazing in this.

    I just finished the book, and oh my god I can't wait for the last episode!

    It's Khaleesi, which is her title as wife to Khal Drogo. Her actual name is Daenerys Targaryen. It's easier for me to keep the names straight after having read the book.

    As noted on the chart, it has spoilers up to episode 7. I like that chart a lot.

    In the books as well as the show, Daenerys started as one of my least favorite characters but grew to be my favorite. Such a badass.

    The Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings tough guy reportedly came to the aid of his famous glamour model companion after a fellow pub reveler made some untoward comments on her topless posing past. While Bean's white knighthood was obviously admirable, it also proved rather dangerous, as a melee ensued and the actor was ultimately stabbed outside the London pub.
    So what, exactly, happened? And just how is Bean doing now?
    According to the Daily Mail, the incident kicked off when the 52-year-old Bean and 22-year-old Playboy hottie April Summers (real name Nadia Foster) went outside Camden's Hill Bar and Brasserie to smoke. A passerby spotted the duo (or at least one half of the duo) and began making lewd comments, leading Bean to confront the big talker.
    All was seemingly well until the stranger returned later on, at which point a scuffle broke out. Bean's rep tells E News that the star was apparently punched in the face, causing a bruise over his eye, and stabbed in the arm with broken glass (not, as some initial reports claimed, with a knife). Despite his wounds, Bean refused any medical attention and opted not to go to a hospital.
    Instead, the actor accepted a first aid kit from the bar staff, then ordered another drink.
    Guess all those tough guy roles haven't been too much of a stretch, after all.

    Looking through the Emmy submissions posted earlier, it seems like any of the supporting actors could get nominated and win but it really seems like Dinklage is the front runner. I'd be happy to see Kit Harington (Jon Snow) win though. I think he's been fantastic.

    if he doesn't get the emmy he at least deserves some sort of award for smacking that joffrey kid so convincingly. I'm not even talking about the character, I mean the actual kid. The casting folks did a good job finding a kid that just looks fucking annoying and terrible. I don't care if he's a sweet kid in real life. I just wanna hit him.

    He reminds me of that kid they got for Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies.

    ^^^ This. I was at a wedding last weekend and my friend spotted a guy that looked like Joffrey will look in about ten years. I had to fight the urge to dump my drink on his head.

    Did you see the scene from Get Him To The Greek where where Jonah Silver runs into him in the bar and makes a hogwarts joke?

    Without his hair all slicked back that guy doesn't look like much of a douche.

    Thought that too. As Jack pointed out though, he isn't as much of a douche in real life.... I did a shot with him in Vegas a month or so ago and he was very nice.


    The kid who plays Joffrey though, has seriously crazy/mezmerizing evil eyes. I would not do a shot with him.

    Well, he is a kid, so you wouldn't do a shot with him anyway. Right?

    The Harry Potter kid used to be a kid too. If you had asked me a couple years ago if I would ever do a shot with any of those kids I would not have thought it was possible...

    Also it was Levi Johnston's 21st B-day party at that same club that night. Needless to say, my nearly 30 yr old ass felt very old. Haha.

    So to answer your question.... I don't know, maybe.
