I seriously can not believe Michele wasn't nominated..
Was so sad as GoT lost award after award.. BUT..
there are dozens of shows that weren't even nominated.. GoT received numerous nominations, pair that with near record breaking ratings for each episode.. I'd say GoT's day is coming! <3

But YEA JETS!!!!!!

If these things were voted by the fans or at least real critics that watch these shows, GoT would recieve 3 of the 4 emmies they were nominated for.

Although I do think Breaking Bad deserved best drama.

Not a fun time for Eli either - sacked 7 times *ouch*

Soryr about the Emmys, too. Found these cool pix on Zimbio of you guys in the HBO loot cavern (looks like you might have picked up some goodies) and a photo of you with Nathan Fillion at the HBO after-party.

Bloody Sunday in Germany as well :(
Of course there are worse heads in the world than Angela Merkel (whom am I telling this?), but still made me sad.

With all due respect to Peter Dinklage and the fine work he always does, this season was so obviously Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's that the moment I heard Dinklage was nominated again for GoT and Coster-Waldau wasn't I felt I couldn't take the whole thing very seriously. It felt like they were phoning it in, recycling their past nominations or going with the biggest name in the cast without bothering to adjust to the season's actual best performances.

And that 'phoning it in' sentiment applies broadly to the series that get nominated, as well. So yeah, Breaking Bad is an Emmy darling, nearing its series finale and also safely outside of the genre of Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Surprise surprise, it wins.

A tiny joke to cheer you up - a comment about GoT on some Russian site:

"Before I read the books, I thought that Game of Thrones was intended to be a porno movie, but at some point the screenwriters started to get fancy with the plot."

Breaking Bad....snorrr......Emmys.....what, who?
Never been a fan of "Breaking Bad" and I don't rally care about the show or its cast. I've tried several times to get into it, but each time I attempted to watch an episode it bored the hell out of me or put me to sleep. After watching shows like "The Wire", "The Shield", "OZ", "Brotherhood", "Deadwood" and "Battlestar Galactica" and "ROME" , "Breaking Bad" is just not doing it for me...I prefer "Game Of Thrones", "The Walking Dead", "Boardwalk Empire", "The Killing" and "Low Winter Sun" to "Breaking Bad" any day, any time! "Breaking Bad" at best leaves me utterly indifferent and at worst it puts me to sleep...

As for GoT not winning at the Emmys, can't say I'm surprised... I gave up watching the Emmys so long ago I hardly ever think about them or any awards in general. I am sorry for the crew and cast of GoT because I know that it is important to them, but otherwise I really put no stock in awards in general.

Thank ghod for the Jets????
I think you just made me loose the bet on the over/under for the next time someone would utter (or write in this case) the phrase "Thank ghod for the Jets". I'm pretty sure I went over on... well... ANY span of time.

"Game of Thrones" and "Breaking Bad" are both fantastic, deserving shows. I understand it would be great for the show to win "Best Dramatic Series" and I totally feel it was warranted for the third season, but I'm also happy to have the ability to watch and enjoy both (if "enjoy" is the correct word - both shows have been a bit harrowing lately)

It's just the beginning. Don't be sad) "Game of thrones" is the best tv show nowadays. It is known.

George I'm a huge fan of yours. But I'm also a Chiefs fan, and I hate to say it but the Giants are going down!

For Emmy Night is shiny and full of errors
Sorry to hear GOT didn't take home the Emmy, George. I'm one of the very few people who don't watch Breaking Bad (the concept just never appealed to me), so I have no basis on which to judge the vote. I can only go with my heart and say GOT was robbed.

I am on my fifth reread of the books, and will be rewatching the first three seasons of the show shortly. My son is old enough now to watch, so I'm going to get him caught up (and hopefully hooked).

All best,

When I heard that the big winner at the Emmys was Candelabra, I thought -- George lost an Emmy to Liberace . . . is Howard writing some of his material now?
[no, I wasn't following the categories in detail]

Gmen :(
That was the most putrid game I've seen the Giants play ever. I'm hoping when Diehl gets back, they put him at guard and put Booth at center. It can't all be David Baas' fault, but since he's been here, the Giants can't run the ball. Now they can't pass protect either. The offensive line (good term because I found their play to be rather offensive) seems to me manned by a bunch of Matadors. Maybe we could replace Beatty and put Hodor at left tackle.

When I think of the two best shows on television right now, it comes down to Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad. If Game of Thrones had to lose, Im glad it was to Breaking Bad. But as to the Giants and Jets....well I think it is going to be a rough season for both of them....

"Thank god for the Jets."

Be honest, did you think that you would be saying this when the season started?

Neither did I....

If we beat Tennessee and Atlanta on Monday night we're looking at a very manageable schedule the rest of the way. We have two with Miami (who does look tough but we always get at least one), Pittsburgh at home (who is completely screwed on both ends of the ball), The Pats at home (a winnable revenge game), Oakland at home (a scrub), Cleveland at home (another scrub), at Carolina (another scrub unless you're the Giants), and another one against Buffalo.

The only tough ones are a homer against the Saints and two roadies against Baltimore and Cincinnati (who would've thought the Bungholes would be tough?). With our defense I really think we can pull off a huge upset here. But then again we could also lose the TEN and ATL games and then mail in the rest of the year like everyone expected us to.

Hope is the eternal curse of the Jet fan, that's why it was put at the very bottom of Pandora's box of horrors...

If the Giants losing means the Winds of Winter will be extra bloody, I hope they keep losing ;) (So long as you don't create a character named Aaron Rodgers and off him) I got a feeling G-men will turn it around.

Painful is defeat Ser Martin, know that we will always love and cherish you even if the Emmys and the NFL gods don't. I am sure the Jets will soon take a 5th divisional title!

You inspire people
M. Martin, please don't feel bad ! You are an inspiration for many ! I have to admit I don't watch the show, I prefer, by far, the books !

I even do my best to write in englsh, Witch you can surely see, is not my mother's tongue !

I would like to share with you one amazing thing you inspired. Some people here in Quebec did this for the pure plaesure of doing it ! They had no real budget, just passion and talent ! See the result :
