The 2014 Emmy Nominations are in, and expectedly outraging everyone across the internet. It takes a 'True Detective' to figure out this 'American Horror Story,' but did the right nominations go to the right people? Will Tatiana Maslany ever get her due? Can dogs really write blogs? We weigh in on the upsets, upchucks and underdogs of today's TV snubs.
For those hoping Queen Elizabeth would one day sit on the Iron Throne, we're gonna spoil you now and say not at the moment. But she did visit the 'Game of Thrones' studio in Belfast, Ireland, for a meet and greet with some of the cast and crew of HBO's hit fantasy drama, and to glare at the famous seat of Westeros.
Star Lena Headey hit up 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' to chat about this past season and what's in store for her (and Cersei) in the future. Host Jimmy Kimmel asked about Headey's familiarity with the books, and her answer was quite cute (along with the image of her mom greedily digging into the books to find the best Cersei stuff). Who knew anything 'Game of Thrones' related could be so sweet?
‘Game of Thrones‘ season 4 has been getting crazier by the week after only four episodes, but even those spoiled by George R.R. Martin‘s books need a bit of a refresher course to keep ahead of those wacky warmongering families. The Lannisters remain at the tippy top but seem to be dropping like flies (and hands), so we'd better tell you everything you need to know about ‘Game of Thrones’' House Lannister in 60 seconds before they're all gone!
HBO's 'Game of Thrones' is no stranger to controversy and questionable content, though the talk surrounding a rape scene between Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei (Lena Headey) from Sunday's latest "Breaker of Chains" drew near-unilateral fire. Now, series creator George R.R. Martin stepped in to comment on the controversy of a scene somewhat altered from its presence in the books.
Much discussion has been sparked today following an eyebrow-raising sex scene (to say the least) in last night's episode of 'Game of Thrones'. In "Breaker of Chains," incestuous and morally corrupt siblings Jaime and Cersei Lannister do what incestuous and morally corrupt siblings do best, but there was something very different about the dynamic between the two this time around: namely, it played out as a borderline rape (watch the scene in question here). But, things are much more complex than that in 'Game of Thrones,' particularly between these two characters. Given the world's proclivity for the graphic exploitation of women, the scene is definitely scandalous.
'Game of Thrones' season 4 is nearly upon us with its April 6 premiere "Two Swords," but with HBO stepping up promotion of the big return to George R.R. Martin's Westeros, winter has come early. Check out the first clips from the new season between Daenerys and her entourage, along with Jaime and Cersei Lannister, and a new look at Jaime's fabulous new golden accessory!
Before anything else: the sex.
There is a sex scene in '300: Rise of an Empire' that is an all-timer. Put it right up there on the shelf next to 'Don't Look Now,' 'A History of Violence,' 'Blue is the Warmest Color,' '9 ½ Weeks' and any of the others that make those best-of lists. Actually, put next to that insanity in the pool from 'Showgirls' (you know, with the dolphin statue?), because there's a level of playful absurdity that changes it from a representation of love (or, more accurately, lust) to something of a Broadway choreographer's interpretation of a fight. Like a 'West Side Story' rumble, but with Eva Green moaning and bent over a table with maps and war figurines. A rise of an empire, indeed.
As we approach the theatrical release of '300: Rise of an Empire' and the first reviews slowly trickle out -- with our own Mike Sampson briefly summarizing it as "equal parts legitimately good, legitimately bad and so-bad-it's-good" -- Warner Bros. unleashed a massive new look at Eva Green and Sullivan Stapleton duking it out on the high seas.
