Let’s talk about the Emmys, shall we?
Gold Derby has a new interview with Emilia Clarke where she reacts to the recent Emmy nominations for her and the show, as well as chats about season 3 and just playing the Mother of Dragons, in general.
At the start of the interview, they ask Emilia about the episode submission process. Emilia doesn’t seem to know much about it, but Gold Derby has a list of confirmed episode submissions. Peter Dinklage has submitted “Second Sons”, while Emilia (or someone) has submitted “And Now His Watch Has Ended”.
Lastly, the LA Times has compiled a list of TV critics’ picks for best drama winner and one thing is immediately made clear from this: the best drama competition is wide open. Amongst this group of critics, Thrones is co-front runner with Breaking Bad. Homeland and House of Cards also received votes.
Winter Is Coming: While critics’ prognostications don’t always translate into Emmy wins, it is a good sign that there is no clear front runner this season. That, coupled with a lot of buzz coming off of the Red Wedding plus a strong season overall, means Thrones has a chance to surprise.
