The 2015 Emmy Awards have reached their biggest award of the night, and only one can win the statue. Game of Thrones has officially taken home the statue for Outstanding Drama Series, and very surprisingly so.

There were plenty of choices for dramatic Outstanding Supporting Actor at the 2015 Emmy Awards, but ol' Tyrion's luck seems to have won out again. Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage took home the Outstanding Supporting Actor in Drama award at the 2015 Emmy Awards once again, amid stiff competition.
Amid all its myriad casting, Game of Thrones most always makes room for the odd musician (or band) to cameo somewhere in Westeros. In Season 3, we saw Coldplay’s Will Champion drumming for the Red Wedding, while this past season Mastodon participated in the battle of “Hardhome,” and Season 6 will find now space for Of Monsters and Men.
We can speculate all the live-long day as to whether Jon Snow will return for Game of Thrones Season 6, but actual casting gives a much better look at 2016. Latest to join the Game of Thrones world are the rest of Samwell Tarly’s family, including Downton Abbey villain James Faulkner, Samantha Spiro and Rebecca Benson!
Just the other day, Game of Thrones favorite Emilia Clarke offered some surprising comments on her distaste for any and all sex scenes, not necessarily just those on HBO. Her words made the rounds a bit, but now the Khaleesi seems to be walking them back, claiming to be “perfectly fine” with tasteful nudity. Oh, the internet.
Mere minutes after the close of June’s stab-happy Game of Thrones finale “Mother’s Mercy,” truther movements sprung up insisting that Kit Harington’s Jon Snow would return to the series in 2016 no matter what. Repeat set sightings have confirmed the TV industry’s worst-kept secret, but might Harington himself have finally given into the speculation?
For as long as Game of Thrones has aired (and will surely continue until Season 8), the HBO adaptation courts controversy in its depiction of sex and violence, from a number of directions. Some stars have even spoken out of their distaste for the show’s visceral style, but perhaps none so directly as star Emilia Clarke, who “[doesn’t] want to have sex thrown in my face.”
While the entirety of Game of Thrones Season 6 may end up spoiled on sight alone, observation of the set often yields some strong casting choices for the season. Case in point, The Babadook star Essie Davis has been spotted filming on the Game of Thrones set, in role that should look familiar to fans.
Game of Thrones has walked a narrow tightrope on the way to Season 6, declining comment on the various Kit Harington sightings that seemingly spoil Jon Snow’s fate, while still towing the company line. Now, some incredible new rumors of a major battle could be our biggest Jon Snow break yet, as well as insight into Season 6's major plot.
It’s grown old hat to accuse Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin of stalling on the franchise’s sixth installment The Winds of Winter, most recently by the revered author’s Sharknado cameo, so we have good news and bad. Martin will put in a zombified appearance on Syfy’s Z Nation, but may also finally drop Winter in 2016, according to reports.
