The Oscars are finished, the Emmys have come and gone, the Tonys wrapped up two weeks ago, but awards seasons wasn’t over quite yet — at least not until Saturday night, when MTV held its annual Movie & TV Awards.

Lena Headey Wanted a Better Death for Cersei in Game of Thrones Season 8

AmusedCerseiSmell that, Game of Thrones fans? That’s the scent of dissatisfaction around the realm. While some people really liked the finale, unfortunately not everyone was satisfied – and that’s OK! While the show has been dead for barely a month, it has not stopped the cavalcade of discussion a show of its caliber has always been successful at inspiring. While for many, that will mean endless fan speculation, cheering, complaining, contemplation, and more (it does!), it also means that sometimes the actors or those behind the scenes might have a few thoughts of their own from time to time. In an interview with The Guardian, quoth Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) herself: “I will say I wanted a better death.”

Take a Bow: Kit Harington

Jon Snow The Iron Throne

Bastard. Man of the Night’s Watch. Lord Commander. King in the North. Heir to the Iron Throne. Kit Harington took on a variety of roles as Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, but through them all he remained true to his portrayal of the honorable, brooding son (in spirit if not by blood) of Ned Stark. Kit didn’t just play Jon Snow, he became Jon Snow.

Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss accept the writing award at the 2015 Emmy Awards

Welp, it’s that time of year again, nerds. No, not wabbit season, it’s duck EMMY SEASON!!!!! And as predicted, Game of Thrones candidates are all over the submitting ballot, from the acting categories as assumed, to cinematography, and everything else in between. While GOT has won its fair share of Emmys (aka, the most ever for a Primetime show, and still growing), it’s always come up curiously short in the category that people end up talking about most. I’m referring to, of course, the acting categories. To date, Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) is the only acting nominee to ever win an Emmy (3 out of 7, in fact). It is my devout hope that in GOT’s season 8 victory lap, we are able to break this curse. A full write up of Emmy speculation will come in the following weeks, but in the meantime, let’s check out who is in contention for nominations this year. Here are the candidates currently sitting on the Emmy ballot:
