Good Stuff

GAME OF THRONES has been nominated in the Best Drama category of the new Critics Choice Awards. Check out the full list of nominees here:

http://insidetv.ew.com/2011/06/06/critics-choice-television-awards/

It's an impressive list of nominees. Congratulations to David and Dan and the cast and crew and support staff at HBO, all the great folks who worked so hard to make the show the success it seems to be. Great work, guys!

((And yes, I do wish some of our cast had gotten nominated as well. We have some amazing actors on GAME OF THRONES. Traditionally, though, fantasy and SF have always been overlooked in the acting categories. But maybe we'll do better in the Emmys and Golden Globes))

On other fronts... Sunday's episode, "The Pointy End," got the highest ratings of the season. The show is building. I suspect that this record will endure until... well, Sunday.

Congratulations on that, Mr. Martin; the show deserves every honor it receives. ^_^ I was discussing the 8th episode with a co-worker who enjoys the series but hasn't read the books, and she said that it didn't seem like as much happened as compared to the 7th episode. Considering the sheer number of things set up in "The Pointy End", all I could do was grin.

She wants to read the books now, though. I think this makes five people I've gotten started on the series. Bwa ha ha.

I love the series
I love the series so far. I had to get HBO back just to see it. Tyrion is still one of my favorite characters, Peter Dinklage was the perfect choice

Tell me when we get to Chicago
George, the only award that's ever mattered is the Hugo. You know that.

If the TV viewers have read your books, I hope they come away from it the way I did: hungry for more. It was after the shock was over that I knew I would not be getting off of this ride. I had grown to love these people and sensed how far you could go or more like how real you could be (even though valar morghulis). All of that...and, of course, sweet revenge on the lions no matter how long it took.

Congratulations to everyone who has worked so hard on the show.

The whole cast is great. Let's hope we get some nominations for the Emmys. Peter Dinklage has been thrown about by a few top critics already.

The cast is excellent with Peter Dinkelage, Mark Addy and Sean Bean being exceptional on a whole separate level. Such talent.

Congrats on your work adapting "The Pointy End"!
I know how difficult it is to adapt anything from lit to screenplay, especially if it's your own material. I thought it was the tightest episode of the season and the first one to make me love the HBO series as much as I love the novels. High hopes for the last two episodes, and "Blackwater" in season 2.

What, no one said congrats yet?
This is great! Congrats on getting nominated. The series may not win, but it certainly may make people wonder and get curious about it.
