Emmy nomination ballots. Not the nominations...just the people from each show up for nomination...

Quote:


"Game of Thrones" has Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) in contention for supporting actor and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), Natalie Dormer (Margaery), Michelle Fairley (Catelyn), Lena Headey (Cersei) and Sibel Kekilli (Shae) on the ballot for supporting actress. Ciaran Hinds (Mance Rayder) is in guest actor and Diana Rigg (Olenna Tyrell) is in guest actress.

Given the massive cast, that leaves out a slew of key players including Charles Dance (Tywin), Jack Gleeson (Joffrey), Maisie Williams (Arya) and Sophie Turner (Sansa). And beloved characters Robb Stark, Theon, Brienne, Stannis, Melisandre, Davos, Ygritte...


Mance made it for....2 scenes? 3?

But Tywin doesnt...and hes owned every second of airtime for 3 years.

Tywin is a horrible omission.. dude has been spot on since his very first scene. That guy IS Tywin.

Kit Harrington and the Shae actor are really garbage cans in terms of talent, why are they nominated?

Charles Dance is the best actor on the show too, why not nominate that guy?

I feel like The Hound deserves to be in that supporting actor category as well.

Jon Snow not so much.

I think for the Emmys, you have to send your ballot so that you're in the running for nominations. Charles Dance probably just doesn't give a fvck lol

On a side note, the writer must be a bit sick in a way too, coming up with characters like Ramsay and Joffrey.

Books are definitely a good read. TBH though, it's hard to get into the books once you've watched the show. At least that was the case with the first book for me.

Low and behold they have a hughe medieval section to it. I was like wow, now I look like some crazy nut for taking them there. But we have this real big museum called the Cloisters, a true top notch museum, which is really detailed and dedicated to that time. Thank God for Cambridge and Oxford or we would still be dealing with the Joffreys of the world. There could be no greater gift to the world.

I hate to say this but all of the haters here are baby formation of both guys. Its just that its suppressed and it doesn't have proper venting mechanations. First you have to be a hater. Then you have your mind introduced to ways to cause pain. Then there is no stopping it. When you have only one guy in every 30,000 living good it breeds the negative side of the brain into madness.

If he caught them, he would flay them, chop 'em up, and feed them to his dogs.

From the ASoiaF wiki: Ramsay openly enjoys abusive and sick practices such as having young women stripped naked and released into the Bolton forests, before hunting them with a pack of feral dogs. He gives a quick death to women who give him good sport (after raping them first), then flays their corpses. He likes to name his dogs after the women he enjoys most to "honor" them. The women who don't give him good sport are raped and then flayed alive. All the skins of his kills are brought back with him to the Dreadfort as gruesome trophies. The bodies of the woman are fed to his dogs.

He is miles more psychotic than Joffrey.

I think this says more about George RR Martin than anything Seriously dude, WTF!

Jon Snow not so much.

The Hound's timing is off the hook much like Tywin and Tyrion's. For a big guy he's killing those scenes with Arya. Its a hard thing to do when the girl is constantly being victimized by the world and you can't coddle her, but is still her protector. His back and forth with her is every bit as good as Tywin/Arya scenes, and he is always eating while delivering well timed lines.
