Game of Thrones Season 8 is now the worst rated Game of Thrones season of all time

As you guys might already know, Game of Thrones Season 8 isn’t doing too well with the ratings. We saw episode 3 go on to become the second lowest rated episode of the show, only to be displaced by episode 4 for the slot. Now, Game of Thrones has hit another low, with Season 8 becoming the lowest rated season for the show, of all time. Read on!

Rotten Tomatoes recently published a report about how Game of Thrones Season 8 ratings have hit a record low for the show, making it a non-recoverable lowest rated season of the show.

Game of Thrones Season 8 kicked off with a relatively good percentage in ratings with the first two episodes. However, episode 3 and 4 have dipped the ratings down so low, that even if the show hits 100% with both of the remaining episodes, it will bring up the season average rating to 85%, which will still make it the lowest rated season. The season currently sits at an average of 77%.

In contrast, all the other seasons are 90%+, with the first season being the lowest at 91%, and Season 4 being the highest at 97%.

What do you guys think? Do you agree with the low ratings for this season? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Rotten Tomatoes has never accurately rated the better shows. It’s the final season, tough to wrap up a story like this neatly. Fans will never be happy with the ending of an era.

The show I came to love is gone. It is a very sad thing. They should have just let it run and just end without any big finale. The show runners have blown it.

They’re ending it too fast, that’s the problem. GoT has always been noted for its foreshadowing and clues. This year the season started and the final battle with the White Walkers happened in the second episode. Now we’re getting the battle of King’s Landing today, I believe. It’s just going way too fast.

Plus, we’re not seeing enough dragon.

I’m loving the final season, but it’s not my favorite. Because the season is ending, doesn’t mean all my loved actors have to die, has not made me happy. Last nights episode was just crazy. It’s not going as I would have hoped, but any show or movie is difficult to finish. Even good books have crappy endings sometimes.

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.

Funko releases new Game of Thrones Season 8 Pop! figurines

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.

What do you guys think? Planning on buying these? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
