Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

I'm more curious how Aaron Paul is considered supporting. His role was somewhat diminished this season from previous highs, but he had his own plots and subplots and tons of screen time.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

There are no real definitions of lead vs. supporting performers; the Emmy rules leave it up to the nomination submitters to decide how to classify themselves, with the caveat that the awards committee determines final eligibility. It ends up being a tactical decision as much as anything else: i.e., Dinklage and Paul were probably felt more likely to win as supporting than as lead.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

If Peter Dinklage is a supporting actor, who is the lead?

Sean Bean.

Seriously though, it essentially concedes that Game of Thrones is a show wtihout a lead, it's a true ensemble series in a way few dramas are.

Because there can only be one lead actor, and that's still Bryan Cranston. Sure this can be arbitrary sometimes - I suppose Anita Gunn could try to get nominated for lead actress, and I don't think many would say she's more important to the show than Paul - but them's the breaks.

Incorrect. As many people can submit for lead for a given show as want to (Martin Sheen and Rob Lowe both did for The West Wing, for instance, or all four of the lead women on Desperate Housewives).

Paul is definitely staying out of Cranston's way, though (partly also because he started out in Supporting in S1, when he was more of a supporting player, and people rarely jump categories).

Seeing that photo, I wonder what we'll be seeing of Theon, if anything, in the coming seasons.

I imagine Daniel Mays as Ramsay for some reason.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0990547/

And holy fuck, Theon and Jaime were drinking in Laverys? That's about 1 & 1/2 miles away from me. It's basically the Mos Eisley Cantina but on Planet Earth. I may have to venture back to it one of these days!

^ That's awesome, Captaindemotion!

Man, seeing Brienne's actress drinking alongside Jaime Lannister and Theon Greyjoy is great.

George R. R. Martin mentioned in a recent interview that Theon will appear in season three, so they're either pushing his story forward or dramatizing some of what happened "offscreen" in the books. Since the Boltons haven't been much of a presence in the series to date, I imagine they'll take this as an opportunity to show how creepy they are.

This was a spoilerish report of a scene with Theon that someone saw for next season. Obvious Book Spoilers.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

I'm up to Feast for Crows so far and I haven't been terribly impressed by this one. There are a few cool little nuggets that are clear set-up plot points for Dance w/ Dragons, but it is nowhere near as good as Storm of Swords, IMHO, which is my favorite at this point.
