The premiere of Game of Thrones was held in New York City last night, and everyone looked SO PRETTY.
Sadly, Lena Headey was sick and unable to attend.

Gutted. Heartbroken and fucked off, still doesn’t cover my disappointment at not being able to travel to NYC for our final prem tonight. I fucking hate being sick and the timing of this is a shit bag. But .. S8 is the tits and so are all my cast mates and crew mates and creators… so RIDE FORTH INTO THE NIGHT AND CREATE MAYHEM … Love you beauties ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💗💗💗💗💗
And here’s what the premiere looked like from a fan/blogger’s perspective. Still very jealous.
So far, I’m not seeing any spoilers — maybe because House Stark issued a dire warning against them. But then again, I’m not really digging around for spoilers.
Point/Counterpoint: Game of Thrones will never happen again/We are only seeing the beginning of Game of Thrones.
Emilia Clarke is dampening any expectations for a happily ever after for Jon and Daenerys. You don’t say.
Entertainment Tonight‘s interview with Iain Glen reveals that Jorah is cool with Dany’s relationship with Jon, and that after reading through Jorah’s final episode, Emilia Clarke was the first person he texted. (Aww.)
Here’s an interview with Little Lady Badass. There’s nothing ground-shaking here, but there is this: “I love her defiance; she’s a badass. Being able to stand up there and shame all these grown men was super-cool.” AMEN, SISTER.
And in this piece you’ll find links to interviews with Gwendoline Christie and John Bradley, but it doesn’t seem like much is revealed here.
Poor Hodor was left with back problems after hauling Bran around all the damn time.
This is a piece about the final season score for Game of Thrones and how the composer claims it will be more epic and intense than ever. But buried in here is that Benioff and Weiss only asked him to compose the score and theme weeks before the series premiere, and he apparently came up with that theme song on the drive home after the initial screening.
NOT Game of Thrones news
According to SpoilerTV, someone is maybe leaking all sorts of documents and concepts for American Horror Story season 9, and if these tweets are to be believed, the season will at least partially take place in 1970s Nevada — probably Area 51. Having just driven from Las Vegas to Lake Tahoe and back — basically straight through this very desert — I’m here to say this will be a PERFECT setting for a season of American Horror Story.
Also, a memo about Evan Peters leaving the series was part of this leak, purporting his breakup with Emma Roberts precipitated it. ALSO, Jessica Lange might be back? Take all of this with a salt mine’s worth of salt, fans have been talking about an Area 51 season of AHS for years now, so this might just be some very creative fan going crazy. But, hey, it’s fun to speculate. I am putting a bunch of screencaps of the tweets into a gallery in case they are pulled down later.
As for the videos that were listed as sources of inspiration in one of those tweets, here are a few of them:
You’re the Worst‘s series finale stuck the landing so hard last night, I’m still shaking. Bravo, you little misanthropic show, you’ve made it into my list of all-time favorite series finales. Here, creator Stephen Falk and stars Aya Cash and Chris Geere discuss that romantic but not finale and the possibility that we will ever see these terrible people again.
Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman appeared in court for the college admissions scandal yesterday, but did not enter pleas. According to this story in Deadline, the prosecutors are out for blood and are determined to throw them into jail for at least a little while.
OK BUT WHERE WERE ANNIE AND DEJA? BUT FOR REAL.
If The Walking Dead even thinks about killing Daryl, Norman Reedus will burn it all down.
We know what the Downton Abbey movie is going to be about now.
The former head writer of Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender says that a fourth season was scrapped in favor of the M. Night Shyamalan film, infuriating fans who were already furious with the movie.
Take care of yourself, Britney Spears! We’re rooting for you!

Joe Biden released a video promising to avoid invading people’s personal space in the future. And I hope this is enough to defuse any future accusations against him — because there will be more accusations — and free him to run a campaign so that the Left doesn’t tear themselves apart attacking/defending him. That said, we have a wealth of great candidates to choose from, so it would also be OK if Uncle Joe decided to not run.
Equal Pay Day was two days ago, April 2 — the day into the next year that the average woman has to work to equal the pay a man earned by December 31 the previous year. On Tuesday, Michelle Williams testified before Congress about how the pay gap controversy that erupted over All the Money in the World “paralyzed” her and made her realize: “If it was like this for me, a white woman in a glamorized industry, how were my sisters suffering across their professions?” Reminder: she was paid less than $1,000 to do reshoots while her co-star Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 MILLION. You read that correctly.
