The nominations for this years Critics Choice have been released and I’m so pleased to say that Kit has received his second nomination of the year for Game of Thrones in the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama series category. The 22nd annual Critics Choice Awards airs on A&E live on December 11 at 8pm ET, 5pm PT. Due to filming season 7 it is not known if Kit will attend but I will edit this post when I know otherwise. Game of Thrones has also been nominated for Best Drama series
Due to filming currently taking place outside, the internet is dark and full of spoilers and I for one do not want to be one of the sites that unintentionally spoils those who wish to remain completely spoiler free. I have now watermarked the thumbnails of those on set images that contain spoilers so the albums are safe to view for everyone. An example of what they look like can be seen below thanks to my friend Kaci who took the time to design it for me. Should you wish to see the bigger image (that will be watermark free) it will be your choice whether to proceed and view. I hope I will be doing the best thing by all visitors of the site.
Several sets of images from the production of S7 have been added to the gallery and they do include potential spoilers so view them at your own discretion. Kit can be seen filming alongside Liam Cunningham (and other cast members who shall remain anonymous for those who wish to stay spoiler free) in several locations in Spain
For those of you who are active on social media please beware that there have been huge leaks which I am told contain details of specific episode content. Whether they are true or not is another matter but if you don’t wish to be spoiled just a warning to be careful on which links you access
A few hours ago HBO have confirmed whilst present at the TCA’s that season 8 of (lets face it everyones favourite show) will be its last. No word yet as to how many episodes it will contain but by the sounds of things it won’t have the usual 10 that we have all been used to, following suit of the announcement made for season 7.
New HBO programming president Casey Bloys met the press Saturday at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour and the first question he fielded was about the future of the HBO fantasy drama. The executive also confirmed that yes, the plan is for the yet-to-be announced eighth season of the adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy drama to be its last.
HBO most recently renewed the drama for a shortened seventh season — consisting of seven episodes — and producers have noted that they envision a total of 75 episodes of the series as a whole. Through season six, the show has produced 60 episodes. Bloys reiterated that an episode count for the eighth season — which is all but a formality — has yet to be determined but noted that conversations for a spinoff remain on the table.
“We’ve talked about it,” he said. “It’s not something I’m opposed to but it has to make sense creatively. I’m not sure the guys can wrap their heads around it when they are about to start production. We’re open to it; the guys aren’t opposed to it but there’s no concrete plans right now.”
Game of Thrones ranks as HBO’s most-watched — and longest-running — series. The recently concluded sixth season wrapped with an average of 25 million total viewers across multiple plays, DVR and non-linear viewing.
With the arrival of winter on the series, production will be delayed and the series, which typically bows in March or April, will not return until next summer.
Following the announcement this morning that the seventh season won’t debut until next summer, HBO has announced that the Game of Thrones Season 6 Blu-ray and DVD release date for November 15, 2016. The series will be released digitally on August 1.
The bonus content for the digital release of Game of Thrones Season 6 will include:
Bran’s Journey – A nine-minute feature delving into the shocking and revelatory journey Bran Stark took in Season 6.
The Dothraki World – Behind-the-Scenes featurette bringing viewers up to speed on the Dothraki culture, not seen since Season 1.
Inside Game of Thrones: Prosthetics – Behind-the-Scenes featurette detailing what goes into the show’s prosthetics creation.
The Game Revealed – Five-part series covering the creation of Season 6’s most epic set pieces and scenes.
Summer is coming. HBO is officially confirming some major changes for Game of Thrones.
Season 7 of the fantasy sensation will not return until summer 2017 – pushing back from the show’s usual strategy of premiering each edition of the series in the spring (typically April).
Also, the network is confirming for the first time that next edition will consist of seven episodes (a pull back from the show’s usual 10 hours). Plus, HBO added that the next season will be shot in Northern Ireland, Spain, and Iceland.
The producers have previously told EW they wanted to cap the hit series at 73 hours, with seven episodes next year, and six in an eighth-and-final season. (“We’ve known for several years now how many hours, roughly, we want it to go, it hasn’t changed,” Benioff said.) HBO has not yet confirmed anything about season 8, however, so that part of their plan is not yet official.
Thrones has managed to ratchet up its production values with each season, and having fewer episodes will likely allow more time for the team to polish every hour of the show. The producers have tapped directors Alan Taylor, Jeremy Podeswa, Mark Mylod, and Matt Shakman for next season.
Another season is over and it’s been quite epic to say the least. Jon Snow returned from the dead and gave up his post as Lord Commander, there’s been more deaths than some of us have had hot meals, the north has a new King, winter has finally arrived and we now know the identity of Jon’s mother to name only a few things. Stills and screen captures from the last episode have been added to the gallery along with an additional episodic still from 6.09. Dr Faustus has now finished and Kit will soon be filming The Death and Life of John F Donovan so things are going to be a little quiet in the next few weeks/months so I am going to take that opportunity to create a new video section to add to the site.
