Not quite clear why do they nominate Bean as the best actor and not Peter Dinklage.

Tyrion
Is totally the main character not a supporting one. Noobs... Good job, though!

Re: Tyrion
Doing it this way, though, they could nominate both Ned and Tyrion :)

You'll probably scoop up all of the awards but definitely for most memorable mutilation!

Awesome!
Lots of congratulations to all for those awards and nominations. They really deserve it!

And thank you for the link, I just cast my votes (I'd be especially happy for Emilia Clarke to win, to be honest^^) =)

Congratulations on all your wins and nominations. Game of Thrones is definitely worthy of those and more. You did good.

I'm pretty sure you'll be winning "Most Memorable Mutilation" every year for the run of the show. :-D

"Best mutilation" is gonna look great on a resume.

In general, really glad to hear more Game of Thrones and Song of Ice and Fire love. It's good that us fantasy nerds can be accepted as part of society now.

Awards, awards
All well deserved, congratulation - a pity the Ulster (Northern Irish)countryside did not make the nominations for most atmospheric scenery but I hope that when the Greyjoys watery abodes are being filmed that the Giants Causeway or jaw droppingly frightening Fingals Cave (the latter in Scotland, of course, try landing in the cave in a Scottish west coast gale as I did once with a boatload of screaming Japanese tourists) make an appearance to conjure up all that it means to be 'iron born'.

Good tidings
Finally some good news...It was about time to start collecting! I watch the Scream Awards on Spike now and again, but now I definitely will watch and have a clear reason not to miss them! I gotta say the panel of judges is impressive, I mean anybody who can get Tim Burton, Daren Aronofsky and Neil Gaiman, George Romero, Robert Rodriguez and the others into one group is to be congratulated.

Now, the fact that these individuals took a look at and considered "Game Of Thrones" and by implication "A Song Of Ice And Fire" into all these categories is an honour and it speaks volumes as to what we got in our hands here!

Now if they would only nominate Esme Bianco for the "Hardest Working Girl in Westeros" Award...the Scream Awards would be even more awesome!

By the way is Ms. Bianco coming back to "Game Of Thrones" in the second season...or at some point in the future? (I know it is the wrong site to ask this on...but I couldn't resist!)

Congratulations on all the accolades so far! I just cast my vote for all the GoT categories. Let's cross our fingers for an award sweep!

Given how I'm quite bitter that Emilia Clarke and Sean Bean did not get nominated for Emmy's, I hope these Scream awards will at least grant them SOME justice. And besides, I would give those particular panel of judges FAR MORE credit than those Emmy voters any day.

No surprise that the series has been nominated for so many awards. ^_^ I have to say, though, that the crowning is definitely a shoo-in for Most Memorable Mutilation - if not only for the unusual and pretty damn uncommon nature of the death, but for the *CLONK* when he hit the floor afterward. Just one of those little moments that really brought it home.

Also: I understand why you don't attend Dragon*Con anymore, but you definitely had fans there. I also saw a midget while at the con, and wondered if he knew the opportunity he'd missed by not cosplaying as Tyrion...

Uh, welcome to the 21st century. I believe the adjective you are looking for is 'Little Person' (heavy on the semantic 'Person').

Hrm. I used the term because, on an interview I listened to a while back, two little people who made their living as wrestlers said they had no trouble with the term 'midget', and in fact sold shirts that said "I support midget violence".

In retrospect, though, using it wasn't a good idea. I apologize to anyone I've offended.

Respect. You stepped up.

I was more offended at the notion of a man dressing up for the amusement of others. Even supposing he did so, why could he not dress as Jaime, The Dog, Ned, even Brienne if he wanted? Does he not have that choice?

My point really was this, labels cause divides. Divisions end at places called Dachau, Rwanda, Wounded Kneee, The World Trade Centre....

Windows?
I'm reading the 3rd book in your Ice and Fire series and have come across some things your proofreaders missed. For instance, there is a line that says the attackers "RAPED WINDOWS". (Visualize that! Haha!) Being a former proofreader of a newspaper, I automatically pick up on the smallest errors...can't help myself. There were several other small errors in the third book (Kindle edition) that stopped the flow. I'm a raving fan of your stories. Thought you should know.

Re: Windows?
"Ye ken rape a window! I jus' donna recommend it."

That is a very, very VERY bizzare image. Almost as strange as "crossdressing Mr. Popo."
