Kieran Culkin, another famous Culkin sibling that isn't Macaulay, won a Critics' Choice Awards speech for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and had nothing prepared. So, he just...did it. And it was the best speech in a long time!
We’ve come a long way from Game of Thrones keeping battles offscreen, but Season 8 is going all out. New set reports indicate the HBO drama more than doubled its shooting time for fan-favorites like “Battle of the Bastards,” and is only getting started.
The Night King’s army made one familiar addition in Season 7, and Game of Thrones may donate even more fresh meat next year. New set photos seem to suggest the Army of the Dead has some powerful – albeit unwilling – allies near and dear to Daenerys’ heart.
Game of Thrones is no Westworld, but we Westerosi can fall down conspiracy holes all the same. So it was with Ned Stark’s curiously inaudible last words from Season 1, which Sean Bean himself has finally put to rest.

Game of Thrones employs the occasional subterfuge to thwart spoilers. HBO even hinted at multiple Season 8 endings for exactly that purpose, but a new report suggests not only that cast aren’t certain which ending will air, but also that HBO wants them quiet on social media.
It’s been some time since Game of Thrones’ penultimate season faced a rash of leaks, as did other HBO programs stolen by a hacker extortionist. Now, federal authorities have officially identified the perpetrator as an Iranian national with his very own wanted poster.
We don’t know if True Detective can make Season 3 work, let alone start revisiting past characters, but one hope for a Rust and Marty reunion may be dashed. Woody Harrelson isn’t interested in any kind of return to HBO’s True Detective, even if his partner says otherwise.
