We recently reported that the seventh season of Game of Thrones won the 2018 Creative Arts Emmys in seven different categories. The creative team receiving the award included: Sam Conway, Joe Baur, Steve Kullback, and others. But, post the event, during an interview, the VFX supervisor of Game of Thrones Steve Kullback accidentally slipped out a major spoiler about Tyrion Lannister in the final season. Read on but, at your own risk as it may spoil your experience of watching the new season.

Kullback accidentally slipped out, “And we can’t tell you in what episode Tyrion dies…or doesn’t.” And guess what happens, all the team members start shushing him down and Sam Conway slams his palm into his forehead – his own way of being taken aback. Then Joe Baur steps in to change the topic and starts talking about the efforts taken in by other creative team members. But, what if he did it on purpose to throw the fans away? Let’s discuss it in detail, but before that just take a look at the part where Kullback gives away the spoiler.

Tyrion Lannister has so far been a fan-favorite character on the show. People have loved his diplomacy, his humane, and his clever way of dealing with difficult situations. But lately, his character has gone down a step, especially with his failed tactics with the Siege of Casterly Rock in Season 7. The seventh season also left with many unanswered questions about him such as – what deal did he make with Cersei and what did his concerned look over Daenerys and Jon’s boat scene mean?

Also, recently enough the actor (Peter Dinklage) even discussed that concerned look of his in the series finale with the Entertainment Weekly.  He said that Tyrion might have gone down a path of jealousy seeing Jon and Daenerys coming together. He revealed:

“No, ah, it’s complicated…A lot of the time with Tyrion, it’s professional and personal. Obviously, he has feelings for Daenerys. He loves her — or thinks he does. She’s awe-inspiring. He’s questioning that because he doesn’t have a good track record for falling in love. There’s jealousy wrapped up in there. And he loves Jon Snow, too. They’re the two people he has the most in common with, in a way — they’re both outsiders in their own families who have refused to follow the path their family has taken, and hopefully for the better. He’s wondering how smart of a move [Jon and Dany getting romantically involved is] because passion and politics don’t mix well. He knows the two of them getting together could be very dangerous.”

Personally, Tyrion is one of my favorite characters on the show and being a die-hard fan I don’t want him to meet a bad fate! So, what do you think? How credible is this spoiler for Season 8 and how hyped did it make you? Tell us in the comments.

Three Game of Thrones actors get Emmy nominations with "unofficial" submissions

Game of Thrones was the world’s biggest television show for nearly a decade, so it’s no surprise that the show had way too much talent. We recently talked about the whopping 32 nominations it scored at the Emmy Awards 2019. One notable thing is, three of these nominations weren’t even filed by HBO, but by the actors themselves. Read on!

Season 8 might have had a bad storyline according to a large section of the fanbase, but everybody can agree on one thing — the actors all gave their best, and the acting was brilliant as usual. Needless to say, the headliners made it to the Emmy nominations again, but HBO didn’t nominate the few actors that really stepped up this season. We had reported about how five actors submitted their own nominations directly.

Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Pilou Asbæk (Euron Greyjoy) and Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) had entered in the supporting actor category, while Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) had entered in the supporting actress category, with Carice Van Houten (Melisandre), going for the guest actress category. The great thing is, three of the five made the cut — Alfie Allen, Gwendoline Christie and Carice Van Houten are officially in the race now.

All three had terrific performances, and it is very much possible that they bring in at least one win within the three of them. No doubt they deserve it, especially because they have been voted in despite the submissions being unofficial.

George R. R. Martin praises HBO's Chernobyl, says it's worthy of Emmys

Game of Thrones is over, but HBO has no plans of slowing down. Immediately after Game of Thrones ended, HBO aired a limited series called Chernobyl, which became an instant hit. Now, the creator of the Game of Thrones universe, George R. R. Martin has praised Chernobyl and expressed his approval for the show to win at the Emmy awards. Read on!

Chernobyl is a mini-series about the nuclear plant disaster in the Ukrainian city of the same name, in 1986, and has been named the best ever miniseries by TV enthusiasts worldwide, except maybe in Russia. George took to Twitter to express his love for the series:

Not only did he praise the show, but also Jared Harris, whose performance in the show has been loved by the fans as much as the series itself. Needless to say, the show is expected to shine in the awards season, as Martin expects.

See Tormund and Gendry enjoy a game on Nintendo Switch in Game of Thrones behind the scenes photo

Game of Thrones had the ultimate face-off in Season 8 when the Army of the Dead faced the living folks in Winterfell. The Battle of Winterfell saw a lot of people uniting to take down the Night King, and among them were Tormund Giantsbane, and Gendry (now Baratheon). A new behind the scenes photo from the sets shows the two enjoying a nice game on a Nintendo Switch. Read on!

The picture, posted on the Game of Thrones subreddit, shows Joe Dempsie, who played Gendry, and Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund Giantsbane, still in their costume and the bloody makeup, just sitting down to play. Take a look:

As we all know, the Battle of Winterfell sequences took a gruesome 55 nights to film, and have been described by the stars as some of the roughest times they have had filming for the show. So it’s no surprise that they would have at least some way to relax on the sets in between takes or appearances.

Nintendo consoles are also famous for being the best for the local multiplayer experience, so that’s probably why these two seem so engrossed in the game. If only we knew which game they were playing!
