Ice Spiders on the cover of ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ calendar for the year 2020

George RR Martin – the creator of the world of Ice and Fire has a number of surprises this year for the fans – his new work ‘Fire and Flood’, a few Easter eggs in them, and now it’s time for the new calendar reveal. The 2019 A Song of Ice and Fire calendar has already been revealed and it’s already available on Amazon.

Some other images of the same calendar by John Jude Palencar were shared by the Twitter user Crown_For_A_King include:

The first one is a Northerner staring at a Weirwood Tree or rather praying – no thoughts on that!

The second one is probably of the beggar king Viserys Targaryen seated slain upon a chair with the Golden Crown Khal Drogo had gifted him.

But, lately, George has shared the first exclusive cover image of A Song of Ice and Fire calendar for the year 2020. You can have a look at that here:

Ice Spiders on the cover of the upcoming calendar – a huge thing to deal with! This was actually shared by George on his blog Not a Blog, where he wrote:

“It’s December and the 2019 Song of Ice and Fire Calendar is NOW available and as our tradition goes it’s time to share some of the art for NEXT year’s 2020 Calendar.  We’re proud to be featuring John Howe as our 2020 SoI&F calendar artist.  John will be focusing mainly on the beasts of Westeros bringing you a whole new year of lush imagery.”

“Here’s an official sneak peek of his cover art featuring his vision of the legendary ice spiders which haunt old Nan’s scariest bedtime stories.  Stay tuned for upcoming news concerning John Howes calendar, and till then check out 2019 SoI&F calendar featuring John Jude Palencar!  

This cover may give us a hint of what George may possibly be trying to convey – Are Ice spiders from Old Nan’s stories coming in the new season of Game of Thrones? Yet, upon being asked about the possibility of these spooky creatures in the upcoming prequel series, George laughed and told the New York Times:

“There might be! I will say nothing about that. Maybe the ice spiders were just a legend! Have you read the new book?”

Do you think ice spiders will never make it to the series like Lady Stoneheart? Subscribe to our YouTube Channel for all the latest updates.

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!
