Emmy Day

Just had brunch. Now I get to watch a couple hours of football, before it's time to put on the Monkey Suit and hop in the limo for the Emmy Award Shuffle.

GAME OF THRONES is one of six nominess in Best Dramatic Series, and all Hollywood agrees that we are the longest shot of the six. Vegas puts the odds against us at 50-1 (still time to get down your bets). Others put it more succcinctly: it will be snowing in hell before the Academy gives the "big one" to a fantasy or SF show.

But we shall see. It's am honot to be nominated, and the HBO party will be the best in town, regardless of who wins the award.

CRoss your fingers, uncross your legs, and light an offering to your favorite deity.

Maybe this series will be the one the Academy has to acknowledge simply because it's that good? Yeah, I don't buy it either, but it never hurts to dream, and such a victory would taste that much sweeter. Best of luck to you and to the cast and crew of Game of Thrones!

Game of Thrones WINS for ME!!
Best of luck GrrM and the team of GoT!! I of course want you guys to win. Just know if you guys do not win best series at the Emmy's you're DEFINITELY winning the BEST series to US FANS!! And we're not a few.
Also, if you guys don't win the BEST Costumes and Production design they're just blatantly telling us, it's rigged.

Someone must be betting on GOT because Vegas has the odds at 9-1 now. Breaking Bad is a bigger long shot.

I think future seasons surely have a good chance, it's time for the industry to recognise SF/F on TV as well.

Best wishes!
and good luck. It is a shock to see them scan the audience and see people you actually know all dressed up and there!

Wish I was there but all my good thoughts are with GoT!

WOW JETS
Well even if GOT doesn't win an emmy tonight George that OT win for your Jets was about the most insane end I've ever seen. Miami misses easy FG for the win AND your call a time out when your Jets FG for the win is blocked. Unbelievable luck there enjoy that win wow

When you play the games of awards...
You either win, or stay cool.

Meaning, it's perhaps a little more preferred to stay just on the outside, right near the lunatic fringe but within full respects of fans and critics alike.

By the way, thanks for appearing on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me. Now my wife knows who you are. She knows I read your books, and saw one scene of Game of Thrones On HBO. She walked in on the 'inferred' baby killing, and then walked away. You won her back, however.

And the winner is...
Win or lose, we all know what the best dramatic series is. But the accolades would be nice too...
