One does not simply Tank Cat into the Emmy’s.….
We here at the TheGamersBlog would like to congratulate our favorite show (at least for most of us) that just debuted a few short months ago for being nominated for 13 Emmys, Game of Thrones. The series, based on George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels, premiered on HBO back in April and was quickly picked up for a second season heralding to rave reviews and high ratings. Making sure to watch every episode, we would explode in discussion over that week’s episode; it’s still the only reason outside of some sporting events, that I keep my cable. The series had some great twist, a huge WTF moment, and a strong lead into its second season. Peter Dinklage was nominated for best supporting actor for his role of Tyrion Lannister. Unfortunately Sean Bean was snubbed, a much underrated actor in my opinion, but the Emmy’s are just too small for Bean to tank cat into. Either catch the series On Demand or via HBO GO, regardless you should check it out otherwise your missing one of the best series to hit T.V. in quite a while. Also there is a RTS based on the series coming sometime this fall, just to keep this post relevant to gaming. Below is a list of the nominations.
