Golden Globes

It's awards season in Hollywood, and I'm out in Los Angeles in the thick of it.

On Friday I attended the American Film Institute luncheon with David (Benioff), Dan (weiss), Emilia (Clarke), Jason (Momoa) and other stalwarts from HBO, where GAME OF THRONES was honored as one of the ten outstanding television shows of 2011.

This afternoon it's the Golden Globes, given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The AFI luncheon was a relaxed affair, since we already knew that we were getting the award before turning up. The Globes are an altogether different proposition; like the Emmys (and the Hugos), they're nail biters, where all the nominees sweat it out until the envelope is torn open. (And the bigger celebrities also need to worry about what host Ricky Gervais might say about them). GAME OF THRONES is up for best drama against some pretty tough competition. BOARDWALK EMPIRE and HOMELAND are the two favorites going in... but GOT is very popular overseas, so maybe we have a shot at an upset. Peter Dinklage is also nominated, for supporting actor... he's a strong contender, I think.

So... tune in tonight, and keep your fingers (and toes) crossed.

((And yeah, the Giants are playing the Packers at the same time. Very annoying of them to schedule it like that. Go G-Men!! Go Eli! Cruz, Cruz, Cruuuuz!))

Best of luck
Although I have yet to see "Game of Thrones" (waiting for the DVD release in my non-HBO household), I've heard nothing but great things about the show and will be rooting for a victorious evening. Go get 'em! (I can't wait to watch the series with my wife; she hasn't read the books, so it'll be fun to see her reaction to the numerous ... surprises ... packed in the story.)

(I'll also be rooting for the G-Men over the Packers; I think New York has a great chance if it keeps playing like it has in the past few weeks.)

George, I wish you the best of luck at the Golden Globes. I cannot wish your team luck at the same time. Go, Packers, go!

Congratulations and Good Luck !
Giants are doing good and GOT is on the verge of winning a Lannister worthy Golden Globe. Life is Good ! On a side note , the winds of winter and April 1st can't get here soon enough.

the competition may be tough but in the end the best will win, so i'm not worried. Game of Thrones and Peter will win, it is known!

Peter wins Golden Globe!!!
Gratz, Peter...GG for the actor of my favourite literature character!!
Great!!!!

p.s. Thank you, GRRM for creating such a great character.
Fortunately, casting was also great! :)
George, tomorrow`s mood must be at least *feeling excellent*, no matter how Giants game ends...

p.p.s just checked that Giants surprised and won Green Bay with a solid margin...mood should be very high lol. btw, I was one of the guys that cut the book-signing line in Ljubljana (Slovenia) this summer by some 300 grunting people.

I have no idea about American Football, but congrats to Peter Dinklage for his win, and commiserations on not winning the Best Drama GG. Next year will be the year of GoT.

Great day for you overall sir. The Giants punch their ticket to San Fran and Dinklage takes home an Emmy. Great stuff
