Game Of Thrones reveals the runtimes of the first two episodes of Season 8

Update: We now know the runtimes of all Game Of Thrones Season 8 episodes!

We finally have the official runtimes of the first two episodes of Game Of Thrones season 8 and some fans might not be very excited after seeing the numbers. Season 8 has only 6 episodes, which is a small number but it’s the quality that matters, rather than the quantity and we have been reading reports indicating that the 6 epsiodes will be spectacular.

HBO has now updated its schedule and has shared the exact runtimes of the first 2 episodes, which was first spotted by Winter is Coming. The season 8 premiere which airs on 14th April will be 54 minutes long, while the second episode will be 58 minutes.

These are average runtimes when you compare them with the episodes from the previous seasons and these numbers are closer to the Season 8 episode runtimes that were shared by Orange Cinema – the French TV network which airs the series on television in France.

  • Episode 801: 60 minutes
  • Episode 802: 60 minutes
  • Episode 803: 80 minutes
  • Episode 804: 80 minutes
  • Episode 805: 80 minutes
  • Episode 806: 80 minutes

So based on this we can expect the final 4 episodes to be longer in duration and we should also take into consideration that the episodes are still being edited, and it’s possible that the lengths of the remaining episodes can change.

So we will have to wait a bit longer to find out the actual runtimes of the final four episodes of Game Of Thrones season 8 but they will mostly be between 70-90 minutes, which is a good number and fans can expect some huge fireworks, considering that the 3rd episode will feature the Battle of Winterfell, which is going to be the longest battle in cinema history!

What are your thoughts about the runtimes of the first 2 episodes and what do you think might happen in those 2 episodes? Share your theories in the comment section below.

Game of Thrones sets a new record with 32 nominations for 2019 Emmy Awards

Game of Thrones has always been a favourite at the awards, and looks like the 2019 awards season won’t be any different. The biggest of them all, the Primetime Emmy Awards, today revealed the nominations for 2019 and Game of Thrones has set a new record, with an all-time high nomination count of 32. Read on!

The nominations for the Primetime Emmy Awards 2019 were announced today, and Game of Thrones got the most nominations in a year by any drama series, ever. The 32 nomination record adds to Game of Thrones’ existing record of 47 Emmy wins, which already makes it the most Emmy-winning primetime series in history, a record it’s expected to carry forward this year.

The nominations do some much-needed justice. We have the usual Outstanding Drama Series, followed by lead actor and actress, with Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) nominated. Following up are the supporting actor and actress categories, with nominees being Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark). Also in the mix is Carice van Houten (Melisandre) in the Outstanding Guest Actress category.

Other nominations are for writing, for which the showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss being nominated for the series finale, and direction, with all directors for the final season getting a nomination. Production design, casting, cinematography, editing, costumes, and makeup, title design, and music composition make up the remaining nominations.

Needless to say, Game of Thrones is expected to win a lot of these categories. Special mention goes to the unofficial nominees that we had reported about earlier, of which Alfie Allen, Gwendoline Christie and Carice Van Houten made the cut. The awards ceremony will take place on 15th September.

New photo shows Naomi Watts in costume for Game of Thrones prequel, Bloodmoon

New photo shows Naomi Watts in costume for Game of Thrones prequel, Bloodmoon

Game of Thrones is over, and now it’s time for Bloodmoon. The Game of Thrones prequel has been under production for a while, with the pilot being ordered by HBO. We have been getting small bits of information about the show, mostly the locations. Today we have what is possibly the first look at one of the stars of the show, Naomi Watts, in her character costume for the show. Read on!

We don’t have character details yet, but Naomi Watts was known to be cast in a role that was said to be of “a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret.” Today, a fan posted a picture of the actress in what is possibly her Bloodmoon character costume. Take a look:

While it isn’t the highest quality picture, there is one glaring clue that hints at the authenticity of the picture. We know the prequel is filming in Northern Ireland, and we recently reported about filming also going on in at the Grotta del Turco, near Gaeta, Italy. This picture shows the signboard arc reading “Grotta del”, which means the photo is likely to be authentic.

She seems to have a very Cersei-like aura. George R. R. Martin recently revealed that the show doesn’t have Lannisters, at the beginning at least. If this is a hint that they show up later, there’s a good chance Naomi might be playing Lann the Clever, the founder of House Lannister. Martin has confirmed the Casterlys hold the Casterly Rock at the beginning of the show, so it’s not too far fetched that we might see House Lannister show up and take over.

Game of Thrones always had a way with merchandising, and while the show itself is over, but the merch lives on. One of the biggest names in the merch game is Funko, a company that makes the famous Pop! figurines and Game of Thrones has had a fair share of them. Now, we have what is possibly the last line for the show, as Funko has released Game of Thrones Season 8 Pop! figurines. Read on!

The designs were unveiled by Funko on their blog, and the lineup has two new designs, one is a Pop! Moment, which captures Daenerys and Jorah as he protected her in the Battle of Winterfell, before giving his own life for her. Take a look:

The second one is a Pop! figurine of Sansa Stark as Queen in the North, featuring her in her full Queen outfit, complete with the crown and everything. Check it out:

No other details are known at the moment, except that they’re coming soon. We are likely to see a possible presence of these at the San Diego Comic Con 2019, which is set to happen soon, with Game of Thrones scheduled for a panel. Prices are likely to compare to those of the regular offerings in the Pop! ranges.
