Good evening Night’s Watchmen!
I’m glad that so many of you have been enjoying the video series I’ve been posting last week and this, the views have been impressive and I’ve gotten a lot of good feedback, both positive and constructive!
That said, there is major news bubbling around the thronesiverse; The Emmys happened last weekend and the outrage is palpable all over the internet. Our beloved fantasy epic got snubbed!
First: To all the new followers we got yesterday, I’d like to give a big thanks and welcome you all to the wall. And now your watch has begun!
Now onto the Game of Thrones news you’ve come here for.
A new video by awards blog GoldDerby has two editors Rob Licuria and Matt Noble interviewing Emilia Clarke about the recently revealed Emmy nominations, including the nod for Game of Thrones as best drama, and her own nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama.
It has been confirmed that the episodes that were submitted for Emmy consideration were:
“And Now His Watch Is Ended”, “Kissed By Fire”, “The Bear and the Maiden Fair”, “Second Sons”, “The Rains of Castamere” & “Mhysa”
The episode that was submitted for Emilia’s Nomination was “And Now His Watch Is Ended”, while the episode that was considered for Peter Dinklage’s Best Supporting Actor Nod was “Second Sons”.
While I know that I would love to see Game of Thrones sweep its awards categories, the fact that none of the awards pundits can pinpoint a front-runner this year means it is wide open for just about anyone to take home these awards. Good news for Game of Thrones fans? Bad news for Mad Men and Homeland fans?
