Winter Is Coming: Congrats to all the nominees! I’m especially glad to see Michelle Fairley get honored for her excellent work as Catelyn. And for the visual effects team to get recognized as well. It’s great to see all the awards and recognition for this show. Can’t wait for the Golden Globes on Sunday!

    Am I first? Like it matters. lol.

    More great news. Hear Thrones Roar!

    Hey, don’t you all think there should be a full-length trailer coming up soon? I can’t believe it’s already mid-February and the show is in April! Or is it May? I need to check.

    Anyway, every time I click over here I expect to read the headline: Full-length trailer airs this Sunday!

    I predict now it will come out before the season premier of Luck.

    You heard it here first.

    I’m glad that Michelle is getting her due, however I think her real kudos will come when the role of Catelyn becomes more UN-conventional.

    it’s a pretty good (and twisted) show! a pity the actor that plays Nathan didn’t signed up for the last season =/. they almost have more kills per episode than GoT hahaha

    and WiC, is there any more nominations that we’d get to vote on?
    thanks
