Game of Thrones

May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor

Behold! The 2014 Hugo Award Nominees!

Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Orphan Black, Gravity, Frozen, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Pacific Rim, Iron Man 3, Saga, and more high-quality SF/F than you can shake a stick at. That certainly covers a whole bunch of our post tags.

The Hugo Awards honor both pros and fans alike, and as usual, the 2014 nominees provide a superb checklist of things to read, watch, and enjoy. The winners will be announced on Sunday, August 17 at Loncon 3 (aka the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention).

The full list of nominees is available below. And should you need to gush about your favorites, mention absent works you feel are deserving (*cough* Janelle Monae’s The Electric Lady for Best Related Work *cough*), or…ah…have a measured discussion about nominees you may object to, the comments are here for your disposal.

Game Of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer Hints At What’s Ahead For Margaery Tyrell

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, actress Natalie Dormer discussed the aftermath of the Purple Wedding. She kept the specifics to herself (for which I’m quite glad), but she did touch on what it means for her character and – cough – her loving new family.

Warning: Great big huge spoilers for last Sunday’s episode, and some small hints for what’s to come. Scroll past the gif of Arya Stark stabbing a table if you wish to continue.
