San Diego Comic Con is as renowned for its carnival-style atmosphere as for it’s panels...
Okay, so we have quite a few months to kill before Game of Thrones returns to the airwaves. How...

How did episode 6, “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” receive a nomination over the other episodes? Wow.
That scene with Arya in the room of faces is pretty damn good.
no offense to Emilia, I love her, though her getting nominated and no nomination for Alfie, who was so great this season, is a little peculiar…
Alfie has definitely been overlooked. His ability to seamlessly transition from Theon to “Reek” deserves some kind of recognition. He’s done such a good job with those roles that sometimes its hard to remember that it is the same actor.
EMILIA CLARKE! Are they kidding? I can’t think of one scene this year from her that was memorable. Or Peter for that matter. Sophie gave a more stirring performance! Alfie and Maisie will always, always be overlooked.
Emilia Clarke pouts a lot and flies with her dragons, and Lena Headey does a naked walk of shame, and cries in a dark cell and they both get nominated? But MAISIE WILLIAMS acts her friggin butt off and nothing for her? THIS IS INSANITY!!!!!!!
Congrats to all the nominees especially in such a controversial year. While the most deserving perhaps didn’t get the attention, its great for the show as a whole.
People keep forgetting, that these awards are for getting stars on the red carpet. It is no true evaluation of how good actors are. Emilia Clarke is a good actress, but not outstanding to justify a nomination. Peter Dinklage is nominated every year and yes he is a good actor, but not much changed in the years inbetween. His strongest season was 4 (imho). You will never see “sidecharacters” like Theon or Stannis (who had both great seasons in regard to acting) snatching a award nomination or even an award. Thats shitty hollywood. Deal with it
