1. 'Game Of Thrones' Slashes A Bloody Swath Of Gore Through Emmy Competition — Racks Up 19 Nominations
Game of Thrones—everybody's favorite outlet for crushing misery and unnecessary nudity—dominates this year's Emmy announcements with 19 nominations, including Best Drama Series, Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Peter Dinklage) and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Lena Headey). Sadly, the Emmy board still fails to acknowledge Best Eye-Gouging-Out Scene in a Drama Series or they could have had an even 20.
