    1. I could see House of Cards – but Downton Abbey…really? Do not understand the infatuation with that minimally ok series. Oh well

    2. long story short- the other post got eaten. Sorry bout that.

      And yeah, I’m so over Downton Abbey winning awards all the time when everyone knows it hasn’t been good in years. I mean even people who watch it know it isn’t that good. I thought House of Cards might take it, but DA…sigh.

    3. Too bad that the previous comments disappeared. There was an interesting Sansa discussion going on.

      I thought that GOT would win the drama ensemble award this year. This cast is so talented; its a shame that their performances are always overlooked.

      It could be worse, I suppose. I just started watching The Americans: it’s an incredible show that is consistently ignored at awards-time.

      Who are these people voting? That just doesnt make sense.
      Especially if they lost to Downton Abbey. Like seriously?

    5. mariamb,

      I agree. Sansa discussions are highly volatile! I liked that discussion as well. Also, I agree that The Americans needs to get more respect. Talk about anti-heroes!

    6. Peer groups like SAG consider drama to be drama, which means lots and lots of scenes chewing dialogue and not expansive scenery or action, hence a series set mostly indoors with people sitting or standing around chatting they consider true drama. GoT gets nominated because it is an excellent show, and so voters can say we like the show too, but to peers it’s more like a guilty pleasure.
      Like LoTR, GoT’s best chance for a win is it’s final season, if the big Hollywood awards never give the show a best drama, I hope a giant fiery snowball from space smashes into the city.
      SAG needs to really add a new category, best television series for shows like GoT to have a chance, because to them it’s more of a hybrid show, excellent writing, acting, directing and production values, but it has just too much action and epic scenery to be considered seriously as a drama.

    7. The Americans is one of those shows with which I’ve meant to catch up, but I’m not willing to pay to do it. I saw the first few episodes, and enjoyed them, but I just don’t watch a lot of tv.
      In fact, while I would have much preferred GoT to win Best Ensemble, the only other show I regularly watch is Downton.

    8. tyjon,

      Interesting point about the differences in types of “drama” shows. It’s just too bad that some voters can’t get past the action and the fantasy elements to take note of the quality acting. That’s what this award was all about.

      Nymeria Warrior Queen,

      I’m watching The Americans on Amazon and yes, it’s a bit pricey. Since I’m indoors because of nasty winter storms, I’m going to ignore the price and just enjoy it.

    9. i like how everyone on red carpet looks like their character: nikolai is very formal like a kingsguard, emilia looks like a queen with authority, natalie looks like a schemer and manipulator with her little smirk, pedro has two women like the viper would, kit looks melancholy as usual , and gwen is def the most noticeable just like she is in the world of got. and the two stark girls look like they are sisters in real life

      I don’t think it’s that the voters don’t take note of the acting. The voters are actors, so no doubt the acting is appreciated, it’s just that, as tyjon suggested, in shows like Downton, there’s little to distract you from the acting. With GoT, there’s a great deal to distract the viewer from the acting. I agree, it’s unfortunate, insofar as the viewer can get so caught up in everything else that’s going on, while they know they’re watching some really strong performances, it does get lost, sometimes.

      Enjoy the Americans, and if you’re in the path of the big storm they’re predicting for the east coast, stay safe and warm. 🙂

    11. Maisie’s look is great. I like Sophie’s dress, and love the shoes, but that hairstyle looks really weird from certain angles.

      SAG is, in a lot of respects, the most disappointing awards body for me. Given what they are, i.e., a collective of credited film actors, in many respects this is a body that should be more meaningful than something like AMPAS or certainly the HPFA, but their choices for the TV awards are almost always dull. They never deliver wonderful surprises like the HFPA’s going for Gina Rodriguez this year, for instance.

    12. George who knows about Hollywood predicted this in season 1. He said GOT would be nominated every year for all these major awards but never win any big ones or if they did it’d be the first season to get it over with. And that was correct with Dinklage, and after that he has been correct as well. He said he knows the way this works with fantasy and sci fi. They’ll nominate to placate the audience but never give it to those types of shows.

      Also he made mention not to get your hopes up either for GOT winning big in it’s final season, as some sort of “reward” for the success. He doesn’t see any scenario this happens.

      It is what it is. Not a big deal really. The show is a hit and makes a fortune. Whether or not some elitist snobs what to recognize that or ignore it because it’s not some crime drama or historical piece is pretty irrelevant. The success speaks for itself and cannot be taken away.

      Sophie Turner appears to have a bald spot she was attempting to cover with the hairstyle, judging from the EW SAG party pictures where she’s wearing a tight ponytail that shows the bald spot. That would explain the weird hair.

      Emilia Clarke seems to have gained a fair amount of weight, to the point that I saw pregnancy speculation on Twitter and elsewhere. She looked great.

    15. Ah well, award season will always have results we can’t get our heads around. Partly because we look at things from a dedicated fan perspective, and partly because the results are ridiculous. DA ensemble versus GOT ensemble definitely falls in the latter category…

      A few observations on the red carpet shots:
      – Gwendoline: Wow, isn’t she looking great! Couldn’t help thinking there’s probably as much red cloth in that fantastic dress as in the carpet
      – Nikolaj: somebody did that funny thing where they photoshopped his impressive head on a body that was too small by comparison
      – Maisee and Sophie: always a joy to see them together, on their way from the kids they were six years ago to the ladies they are quickly becoming
      – Natalie: the perpetual pout impersonated, and doing a great job at that
      – Emilia: still the cute girl she was in the very beginning – Targaryens clearly don’t age like the rest of us
      – Kit: please someone tell a good joke – looking so miserable again…
      – Pedro: the only way he would have looked more in-character was if he had Amanda Peet on his left arm and David Benioff on his right

    16. M,

      Emilia is always lovely of course but, yeah, she looks her best with a little more weight on. Like in s1…(daydreams wistfully about a certain scene or two). She looks spectacular here, of course. With the capey sort of thing she has on her dress, it could almost be a Dany costume.

      It’s a pity Nathalie and Carice couldn’t make it to the show.

      That’s not a bald spot. That’s the consequence of her hair being pulled back in that ponytail. Otherwise she would always style her hair like this.

      Nope, definitely a bald spot, (judging from this older picture, which was from 2013), otherwise her hairline wouldn’t be zigzagging weirdly like that in that spot. Damn, girl.

      And a bald spot can be a consequence of having one’s hair pulled back in a ponytail or otherwise all the time. It’s called traction alopecia.

      Maisie Williams’ EW SAG party dress was cute and age-appropriate.

      That pretty much sums the situation up nicely. But still, picking Downton for best drama makes no sense.

      The cast looks terrific as always, especially Gwen, Maisie and Sophie.

      On the bright side, congratulations to the GoT stunt team for their win. And Viola Davis for her win too!

      But I have seen that with Emilia before , but she never looks that way on set or other times off set.
      I don’t know if she gains a little and then takes it off quickly.
      It’s been true of Maisie too, tho right now she is down right trim.
      She really does look like she’s about to turn 18, if she was not so short she would be as young adult looking as Sofie.

      Emilia is stunning as always. Nitpicking about weight is distasteful.

      I could be wrong, but I think it is the first picture (that has no water bottles in it 😀 ) showing Daenerys and Tyrion in the same shot, so for me that picture confirmed that Tyrion will meet Daenerys in the show.

      That picture was far more exciting than all TheSight videos combined 😛

      I’m so excited that Sophie was casted as Jean Grey. I’ve been down in the dumps until I heard that she was casted. See I went fishing last month and when my line was casted, I slipped and broke my leg. It’s OK now. My casted is finally off but I still have to wear a braced.

    33. jack,

      And then cry here about Sophie fans being overdefensive… says someone with an Arya for nickname for example.

      Also, you need to get your eyes checked if you think that’s a baldspot. There are other photos of her where that’s not the case, and it’s a simple matter of something called “hair dye”. Sophie’s hair is naturally very blonde so if she doesn’t dye her roots regularly the front of her hair looks a bit pale. If you look closely that’s also got to do with the short parts of her hair angling towards different directions. If you have long hair you’ll know what I’m talking about.

      I doubt she’s trying to hide it as someone who would be attacking her appearance say. Just 2 days ago she did her hair in updo style for EW afterparty really.

    34. Are we really spending this whole thread talking about actresses’ supposed weight gain/loss and “bald spots”?

      Grats to the stunt team as usual! We just really have to hope the series stays as strong as it has been, and then in S7 GoT will get all the awards. The best comparison is LotR:RotK and the Oscars.

    39. Emilia Clarke is petite and cute but she doesn’t look 16. Not now and not in season 1. She looks like the Hollywood version of a teenager. Movies and shows about teens tend to hire actors who are older than 18 so they don’t have to deal with child labor laws and on set tutoring. I think it gives a skewed perception of what a high schooler looks like. Actual 16 year olds look like kids.

    40. Balerion The Cat,

      There are photos of them

      sitting fairly close to each other on the dais in the pit. It was pretty much assumed they would meet, because they were clearly sharing scenes. He’s a purchased slave- he’s not owned by Grey Worm/Barristan/Missandei, and Daario just wouldn’t be buying slaves, so he had to be up there as bought by Dany or Hizdahr, her new husband. Seemed obvious to me.

    42. Ser Dosser,

      I don’t think you can make a blanket statement that all men age better than all women. It’s true that men can carry on fathering children as long as they live (if they have a partner of child-bearing age). Some people of both sexes age reasonably well whereas others – of both genders – look rough once they are past the first flush of youth.

      Getting back to GoT, I’m glad the stunt people were given some recognition. I think the ensemble cast of GoT do very well in the acting sphere as well – I’ve never watched Downton Abbey even though I’m based in the UK (doesn’t appeal to me somehow) so I can’t judge whether it a programme with merit or not.

      For those who are concerned about the casting of Johdi May as Maggy the Frog, because she’s a very attractive woman, look at how stunningly beautiful Gwendoline Christie is. At least for me, that is something I would never say about her in character as Brienne. In fact, when I first saw Ms. Christie out of character, I was shocked by how beautiful she really is. If the show can transform Gwendoline Christie like that, I have no concerns they won’t be able to do that with Ms. May.

      Well, yes, GoT hasn’t won that many “big awards” (whatever that exactly means), but I feel it’s doing very well in terms of awards overall. I don’t know if Wikipedia is up to date, but according to it it has won 59 awards so far, including 14 Emmy Awards, 1 Golden Globe Award and 2 Hugo Awards. That’s as good as it can get for pretty much any show. – Not that awards really matter, as you say, the show is a hit anyway, but sometimes I feel people just don’t remember all the stuff GoT has won.

      Long ago after the success of season 1 Dave and Dan said in an interview that when they made the pitch to HBO they said something like “this show will not win any Emmys ” . That did not seem to phase HBO.
      Now I am thinking HBO probably doesn’t care if GoT ever wins any more awards!

    56. Congrats for the win, though again and again over the years, “Game Of Thrones” has been left in the cold in terms of acting and other categories, and oftentimes in really headscratching circumstances, when really the other competitors were really subpar at best! I will again reiterate, what I’ve said for a long time, these awards are highly subjective and meaningless. And it isn’t even “Game Of Thrones” that has been snubbed, other great shows are given the cold shoulder on a consistent basis…so pardon my French but fuck’em all, SAG’s, Golden Globes, Emmys and all the rest of this self-congratulatory circle-jerk parade!

      Probably not in the trailer, but throughout the season..oh yes a man can hope!

      According to this article from indiewire.com, dated January 21st, the R-rating is for the episodes themselves.

      “Also, the MPAA has done its due diligence by assigning a rating for the theatrical experience — even though what’s being screened is not a motion picture. “Game of Thrones” was given an R-rating, as expected, for “sequences of brutal violence, and for language including sexual references.” I guess the trailer won’t be offering up any naked ladies wandering around at random, which seems odd, considering how often similar scenes appear in the series.”

      Probably not in the trailer, but throughout the season..oh yes a man can hope!

      Maybe the whole season will be shown on IMAX.
      Nudity! The MPAA can plaster a REAL R!

    60. Yep. It’s the episodes that are R-rated, not the trailer, as Indiewire correctly reported.
      And what the rating was going to be was fairly obvious, because uh, we’ve already seen the episodes.

      Air Herald said that the Game of Thrones Season 5 trailer has been officially given an R rating by the MPAA.
      “The Game Of Thrones season 5 trailer has been officially rated R by the MPAA. That’s because it will be shown with the final two episodes of Game Of Thrones Season 4, which are airing in IMAX theaters later this month. It’s the first time that a TV series has been shown in IMAX, but because it will be aired in a movie theater, it has to be rated by the MPAA.”
      The article also goes on to explain why the MPAA rated the trailer, the way it did.
      “The MPAA gave the Game Of Thrones Season 5 trailer an R-rating for sequences of brutal violence and language including sexual references.”

      But still, I think you’re probably right, it would be really weird considering that that’s not what a trailer is supposed to show

      Just watched it again, the violence is totally muted and there is no dialog.
      Sure someone is not getting mixed up about the 2 hour presentation ?
      The MPAA has rated that , I have never seen a bland trailer rated R.

      As per usual the banner says “The film [b] advertized [/b] has been rated”

    63. Morgan: I don’t believe DeObia and Rory were actually at the ceremony. They were probably at an HBO after-party or something like that.

      Rory was on the red carpet.
      So were Conleth Hill and John Bradley.
      Amazing , Hill has only been seen rarely off set, maybe he’s changed.

      There are pictures at http://gameofthronesfan.org/gallery/

      I think there is also a pic of Alfie at the party, don’t think he was on the red carpet.

    64. Where are their fucking shoes? We get Maisie’s and Kit’s (B+ to Maisie and C- to Kit in footwear choice), but everyone else has theirs covered up. Very disappointing.

    65. Nymeria Warrior Queen: That was an exceptional scene.
      I miss that show, too.

      On a GoT note:Am I the only one who enjoys both Sansa and Arya?
      Yes, I have a preference, but that doesn’t mean I have anything against the other character.

      I’m a big fan of both Stark girls, they’re both in my top 3 favorite characters.

    66. WeirwoodTreeHugger:
      Emilia Clarke is petite and cute but she doesn’t look 16.Not now and not in season 1.She looks like the Hollywood version of a teenager. Movies and shows about teens tend to hire actors who are older than 18 so they don’t have to deal with child labor laws and on set tutoring. I think it gives a skewed perception of what a high schooler looks like. Actual 16 year olds look like kids.

      That’s generally true, but doesn’t apply to everyone. Some teenagers look like kids, while others look like adults. I’ve known 15-year olds in my high school who could have passed as being 30, and 20-year olds at the university who looked like they were no older than 13. Adults also age at drastically different rates, and some people have naturally youthful or mature appearance – there are people who look much older than they are, and people who everyone assumes are 10-15 years younger than they are (and I mean, with no cosmetic surgery involved).

    67. Boojam,

      Yeah it’s weird, Conleth, John, Rory and DeObia weren’t in any of the earlier released red carpet pics last night posted on websites. They popped up much later. Probably because they’re not quite the names that Emilia, Kit, etc are.

      If you read article from the link I posted, you will see where the Air Herald article, which was posted a few days later, apparently took the explanation for why the two episodes were rated R, and applied it to the trailer.
      It sounds like you agree the trailer does not contain R-rated content, it’s the episodes which do, and I know you were just passing along what another GoT site said, so it isn’t you who were being misleading, but to say the trailer is r-rated does seem a bit misleading.

      Annara Snow: I’m a big fan of both Stark girls, they’re both in my top 3 favorite characters.

      It’s good to know I’m not the only one. 🙂
      I love both the characters from the books, and also how both the young and incredibly talented actors have brought them to life on the small screen.

      I agree – Arya, Sansa and Jon are my top three although Sansa didn’t become a favorite until her Blackwater chapters.

      I like to yell “Charlie don’t surf!” from time to time. I’m not good at the more understated Duvall though and Welliver nails it.
      (He must know either about Duvall’s Argentinian wife who he tangoes with or at least have seen Assassination Tango. It’s little details like that that make an impression).

      Ah ok. When I posted that I had not seen any pictures from them on the red carpet. Sue makes a good point though, they’re not as big of names as the others.

      Nymeria Warrior Queen,

      Can we please get back to Sarah Paulson and how amazing she is?

      Also have you seen Titus Welliver’s(Silas Adams) Al Swearengen auditions?Allow me ; . His David Milch is spot on.As is his Pacino.And his Walken.

      Titus Welliver – Al Swearengen Auditions: http://youtu.be/fS_lE_AcD2k

      Whatever was I thinking!?! My apologies.

      Her work on Deadwood made my skin crawl to such an extent, whenever I see her, I have to remind myself it was just a role. In fact, my visceral reaction to her in that role reminds me of my reaction to Jack Gleeson as Joffrey. No, I’m not saying the characters are similar, just that their portrayals stuck with me in similar ways.

      Thanks for that youtube link. That was hilarious!!!

    73. All the cast AMAZING!!!
      One thing: I saw a lot of pics and vids of Kit and the GoT cast and Kit smiling and making jokes. He smiles when he wants, not all the time like an idiot and I love it!

      Congrats for the award!
