Primetime Emmys Roundup

Well the Emmys have come to an end, and unfortunately Game of Thrones didn’t pick up any wins tonight – aside from the Creative Art Emmy Awards, which won them a total of 4 Emmys.

Game of Thrones was competing in five major categories:

  • Outstanding Drama Series
    • Lost to Breaking Bad
  • Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series – Lena Headey
    • Lost to Anna Gunn – Breaking Bad
  • Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series – Peter Dinklage
    • Lost to Aaron Paul – Breaking Bad
  • Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series – David Benioff and D.B. Weiss
    • Lost to Moira Walley-Beckett – Ozymandias” – Breaking Bad
  • Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series – Neil Marshall
    • Lost to Cary Joji Fukunaga – True Detective

Breaking Bad had their final season nominated for the Emmys this year, and as some had predicted they cleaned house at the award ceremony.  It would have been nice to see Game of Thrones win something after such an amazing season, but there’s always next year…when Breaking Bad wont be competing.

One good this we got from the Emmys, was pictures of the stars on the Red Carpet.  Check them out below!

New Set Photos from Kaštel Gomilica

31

We have some new photos of the set design in our newest filming location, Kaštel Gomilica.  None of these new pictures have confirmed what this will be used to represent in Game of Thrones – But I think it has the making of Braavos.

The following galleries go in order of oldest to newest, to allow you to visually follow the developments being made!

This set of photos from split.com.hr shows us the development going on in the alleyways and around the waterfront.

In a newer set of photos shared by Croatia’s Jutarnji List, initially spotted by Watchers on the Wall, we can see Kaštel Gomilica’s waterfront set going under some more development.  Also in this set of photos we can see that the Lannister-Baratheon house sigil – originally visible in the above gallery – has been completely covered with stone.

I think the fact that they are spending so much time developing the waterfront set adds to the likelihood of this being Braavos.  I’m just very curious as to why they covered up the Lannister-Baratheon house sigil.

So do you agree that this set will be used for Braavos in season 5, if not what do you think it will be used for?  Also why do you think they covered up the Lannister-Baratheon house sigil?  Let me know your thoughts below!

    Dunk & Egg

    I’ve seen this question pop up several places so I thought I may as well do a post on it.  The question being how you can get your hands on a copy of George R.R. Martins Dunk and Egg novellas.  So here they are!

    Also if your interested you can purchase the Dunk and Egg stories as graphic novels, with The Hedge Knight already out and The Sword Sword being released in just a few weeks.

Today marks the start of the screenings, starting with the first three episodes of season one.
