SAG, AFI Honor THRONES

sword
It's been a great week for GAME OF THRONES in Hollywood, with both the Screen Actor's Guild and the American Film Institute bestowing honors and recognition on the HBO series, and some of the folk who work so hard to make it great.

SAG announced the nominees for its annual awards this morning.  I'm thrilled to say that the cast of GAME OF THRONES are nominated as Best Performance by an Ensemble in a Television Drama, on a shortlist that also includes our familiar rivals BOARDWALK EMPIRE, BREAKING BAD, DOWNTON ABBEY, and HOMELAND.   The guild members also nominated our fearless stuntwomen and stuntmen for Outstanding Action Performance by Stunt Ensemble in a Television Series.  BOARDWALK EMPIRE, BREAKING BAD, and HOMELAND are up in that category as well, along with THE WALKING DEAD.  And  Peter Dinklage, our once and future Tyrion Lannister, was nominated as Best Actor in a Television Drama.  He will vie for the award against Steve Buscemi (BOARDWALK EMPIRE), Bryan Cranston (BREAKING BAD), Jeff Daniels (THE NEWSROOM), and Kevin Spacey (HOUSE OF CARDS).

The SAG nominations follow close on the heels of AFI's annual announcement, recognizing their ten favorite films and television shows of the previous year.  GAME OF THRONES made the list for the third year in a row.  The AFI recognition is especially nice since it has no winners and no losers; all ten of the chosen films and television shows share the recognition.

I think it's unlikely anyone other than breaking bad's gonna take home much this year

Rolling Stone Magazine also listed the Red Wedding as the top moment on TV this year (can't post links here cause my comments keep being marked as spam, check their website).

Given the nominees, it'll probably be Cranston.

But given what I've seen so far of the other series and what is upcoming for Tyrion, I think he'll be the most likely candidate this time next year. He's definitely the runner-up in that list.

I'd say Cranston is the top pick with Spacey in 2nd. Buscemi in 3rd, and Dinklage 4th with Daniels dead last. I still wonder how he won the Emmy...

Dinklage's work was great as always, but he didn't have much to do this season. Now Nikolaj on the other hand stole every scene he was in. Too bad they didn't nominate him instead.
