Another curious choice was a directing nom going to the pilot..but not Alan Taylor and Baelor.

As I recall, all of his commanders were witnesses by signing with their seals the document in which Robb declared Jon to be his heir. So far as we know, the Greatjon is still alive, held captive by the Freys.

I think the award Game of Thrones probably deserves the most is Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series.

HBO productions that led the way: Mildred Pierce with 21 nominations, Boardwalk Empire with 18 nominations, and Game of Thrones with 13 nominations.
Mildred Pierce is fantastic and really deserves that impressive frontrunner status. Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones were also very solid, entertaining shows.

Brienne minus Jaime = dullness. And compared to Arya, her travelling companions are nowhere near as interesting.
I'll take the monks Brienne visits over Hot Pie any day. Her chapters are overall a little better than Arya's in books two and three, although generally the series could use without so much traveloguing.

Remember when Barristan disappeared from the books and then showed up again at the other end of the world with an assumed name? That was awesome.

Did we need to get a string of chapters about how Barristan escaped King's Landing, how he met Strong Belwas, their long sea voyages, etc. ... not really. Eliding characters when they're not doing anything terribly interesting is something GRRM should do more often.

I agree, however I didn't like it as much this time around, since Cersei is such an inept fool compared to Tyrion.
Which did make it fun reading. Having Cersei congratulate herself on a poorly made decision was good stuff. Cersei's just such a wonderfully nasty character to see the world from.

Great casting...Not familiar with Van Houten's work, but she definitely has the look..and Dillane was great in John Adams.

Recently Carice Van Houten played a witch in Black Death, which also featured Sean Bean and Emun Elliot (the bard Marillion, who went with Catelyn to the Eyre and whose tongue Joffrey chopped in the finale). IMDB has a good picture of her from this movie:

Liam Cunningham has been cast as Davos Seaworth. He's perfectly suited to the part in my opinion. Also, Oliver Ford Davies has been cast as Maester Cressen.

io9 has a new interview with Martin up, wherein he talks about issues of identity in the series as a whole and in A Dance with Dragons specifically. (There are some mild spoilers for Dance.)

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

Filming on the second season has been underway for a few days. Reports are that actor Karl Davies has been cast to play a character names Alton Lannister, with reports from the set indicating this may be a renamed Cleos Frey, giving support to the quite widely-made prediction that the second season will bring forward much of Jaime's storyline from the third book.
