    1. Guessing this will be a runaway win for Lysa, partially thanks to Oz’s influence. Where is Oz, anyway? I enjoy his posts more than set pictures.

      Also, obligatory NOOOOODOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR since it’s my first time getting the first post.

    2. This was a tough decision between Kate Dickie and Tara Fitzgerald, but I voted for Selyse because she left a strong impression torn between her gods (she needs them, urgently, Stannis being such a …) , her loyality to The Red Woman, her hate she feels for her daughter who will be the next sacrifice for the Red God, I daresay. Many shades in her charkter, and more daring then the simple psycho scenes of Lysa Arryn..therefore..hail for the Queen…

    3. Kate Dickie as Lysa Arryn is the obvious choice and she did great. I was tempted to vote for her but… my vote must go for Hannah Murray as Gilly, no doubt.

    4. I adore Kerry Ingram but I don’t think she had the quality amount of screen time this season, especially compared to Kate, Tara and Hannah. Hopefully we will see more of her in S5.

      My choice was between Kate and Tara. Both did a great job bringing the full-on crazy but, in the end, I chose Kate.

      Yes, where is Oz? Miss him!

    5. Well, Shireen and Gilly are great, but Lysa was really amazing – lots of range, shifting between fake-sympathy and full-on crazy, plus she gets the sympathy vote for leaving the show now.

    6. Hannah. Fucking champ she is. She seems to make JB better (if that’s even possible).

      I just want to grab her cheekbones and drink her face.

    7. Yeah, this was the easiest one to pick. Tara Fitzgeeald would probably ve my secind choice, I thought seeing the fanatic facade start to fade away just a liiiiitle bit shiwed really good acting on her part.

      But this belongs to Kate Dickie. She made such a strong impression in her brief time (two eps this season, five in the entire series). Such a memorable performance.

    8. For me Kate Dickie wins this in a walk. The other nominees are all good too, but Dickie was working on another level, even when the writers undercut the character by removing all of her important backstory (I really wish she’d gotten the chance to give us Lysa’s story). As soon as she showed up in episode 4.05 I wished Lysa wasn’t going to be leaving so soon, because she added a lot to the show.

    9. Hodor Targaryen: (two eps this season, five in the entire series

      Really only five in total? Well, even though I love Tara and Kerry as well, Kate Dickie definitely left the most lasting impression. (pun intended)

    10. I’m a softy for Shireen (she can do no wrong) but I had to go with crazy….. “Only Cat…”

      wait….I meant “Only your sister…” [fucktards!]

    11. Hodor’s Bastard,

      Hahaha you simply HAD to say that. Scene was awesome anyway. It was part Kate, part Aidan. More Aidan. :p

      My vote goes to Kate in this category. She excelled for what she had to convey.

      Oh, btw, that’s what I voted for in the book quote left out quote poll! I wonder why we have that poll?

    12. Strider,

      I think that “book quotes” poll is so cool……kudos to WotW folks for doing stuff like that. More please.

      Btw….did they ever find Lysa’s body….? Maybe Nymeria will…. 🙂

    13. I would have given the vote to Shireen last season, probably.

      This time, however, Lysa and Selyse had more to do and did it very, very well. Both are crazy and I love to see both. But Lysa was crazier and will be no more (well, I suppose).

      So Kate Dickie gets my vote for Lysa Tully/Arryn/Baelish.

    14. Hodor’s Bastard,

      You mistook meaning I think, HB!

      I think it is great that we do these polls too, and give bookreaders something to entertain them! I vote for everything LOL Put Wyman Manderly for character I’d like to see for example. I just didn’t know if we will see these polls into blog articles at some point. That’s all. Plus this one was Book quotes and you know how supposedly the site is show oriented.

    15. Kate Dickie. Easy choice. Gemma Whelan was given nothing this season and all the otehrs although compotent did nothing to blow me away.

    16. I went with Kerry Ingram. She’s just adorable as Shireen and the delivery of the “ka-niggit” line always makes me smile. Kate Dickie was amazing too though so props to her… props to all of them actually!

    17. Kate Dickie was captivating during her entire run on GoT tbh, she gets my vote. I love Kerry Ingram as Shireen, she’s very impressive with the little amount of screentime she gets. I really like Gemma Whelan as Yara but her scenes were kind of lacklustre this season. I don’t really care for the remaining two at all.

    18. TheTouchOfFrost,

      Gemma Whelan was great. This is a Guest Actress list, all of these appeared in 3 episodes max so you can’t say she was given nothing, pretty much all of these were given nothing.

      But Kate had the most challenging material, and she aced it (shoddy CGI aside)

    19. Tyrion Pimpslap,

      Wow. Maybe they’re planning to launch coincidentally with GoT S5ep1? Too soon? I’m sure that they have been working this upgrade for a while now, to align with Netflix as well as steal a few torrents back from pirated seas.

      Regardless, it looks even better for overall GoT viewership.

    20. Lysa was one of the characters who made the strongest impression on me in season one before I had even read the books. How could I not vote for her? I did want to vote for Hannah Murray too though.

    21. Kate Dickie for me too. In a way I think the overall list of candidates was a little weak, but the final five were all strong. I almost went for Shireen, but crazy Lysa snitched it for me. I would say that I’m not bothered at all who wins, but Kate will absolutely walk this one, so I guess it doesn’t matter what I think.

    22. As much as I love Shireen, I must vote for aunt Lysa because she creeped the hell out of me. Kate Dickie did an amazing job.

    23. Voted for Kate Dickie. Had to. My picture of Lysa Arryn was forever changed by her performance.

      Shireen will haunt me till season 5 with her singing, though…

    24. Everyone was good, but I could not look away from the crazy that was Kate Dickie. That woman creeped me out for days after each episode. Bravo.

    25. Leaning towards Kerry, more than any other here I was always so happy to see her. That’s an awesome picture of Kate though.

      This might be the least popular opinion ever, but I’ll say it: “Your sister” > “Only Cat.” I think it must be Aidan’s ice cold delivery.

    26. jjp,

      I think both are really good. Like the punch line of a life-long joke. It still seems weird to me that they changed it, because they were really close to the book till that last line (and it was a really memorable line, quoted everywhere), but “Your sister.” was still bloody good.

      They probably found the thousands of little pieces that once were Lysa’s body…

      Anyway, Kate Dickie is clearly going to win that, but I voted for Tara Fitzgerald, for some subtle acting in a few interesting scenes, most of all the one with Melisandre, which made the character surprisingly complex, more so than she’s been in the books (kind of the opposite of what happened with Lysa on the show, though that was no fault of Dickie).

      I’m not particularly bothered by that change (especially compared to many others). but here’s how I see the difference: “Your sister” sounds like Littlefinger being exclusively focused on hurting Lysa and sticking it up to her; “Only Cat” was partly that as well (why else would he tell her?), but sounds more like what Littlefinger would honestly say about his feelings – he may want to stick it up to Lysa that he never loved her, but she is not his primary concern, Cat is never “Lysa’s sister” for him – it’s the other way round.

    29. When it comes to range, it has to be Kate. The other actresses are good, but none of hem had the opportunity to show the range that Kate did. So I am going with her

      Re ‘your sister’ I so didn’t have a problem with this. It made sense for them to do it, still does.

    30. I chose Hannah Murray for her very subtle, always natural performance. I cared and worried more about what was happening to her character than the others. (Sorry Oz). Her scenes with Sam were always so good, and I also liked the scene in Molestown where she holds her own with the whore’s insults and then immediately realizes that the noises from outside are not from an owl.

    31. Though all the choices are great, this time I went with Kerry Ingram as Shireen Baratheon, not only for her excellent job, but also for the promise this character might yet prove in the remaining novels.

      Something tells me she is quite important for the future…

    32. Rara,

      ashara,

      Did we vote on all categories now? I think there might be one left, but tbh I’ve lost count long ago. Anyway, my guess is they’re trying to score some acceptance speeches by some of the actors, and will only announce the ‘Award Show’ when this is done. They could just try to get hold of Rory for a couple of those 😉

Si au départ, il l’utilise en tant qu’ajout dans la palette déjà large de ses percussions, que ce soit pour Paul Simon ou Youssou N’Dour. il compose ensuite directement en prenant cet instrument comme base (Hadouk Trio.
