The next season of “Game of Thrones” will depict a pivotal scene in which Cersei Lannister — the Queen regent and mother to the dearly departed King Joffrey — is stripped naked and shamed by the High Septon, after the show’s producers reached an agreement with Croatian film commissioners. Originally, the film commission was reluctant to give the show permission to film the nude scene in Dubrovnik, Croatia, because it would have required actress Lena Headey (goddess) to walk naked through an actual church. Rather than cut the scene, which most “Game of Thrones” fans who’ve read the books will tell you is essential to Cersei’s story arc, the show and the film commission reached a compromise, and Headey will only be nude walking through the streets, but not in the actual house of worship. Phew! [Huffington Post]
It’s that time again! Awards season is upon us, and what better way to remind us that we’re still irrelevant for not having watched “Breaking Bad” than by continuing to nominate it for things, am I right? Anyway…
Tons of great TV shows are up for awards this year, including some of The Frisky’s personal favorites, “Orange Is The New Black,” “Modern Family,” “American Horror Story: Coven,” “Game of Thrones” & more. To give us a sneak peek at what’s to come, the cute kids who acted out the Oscar Best Picture nominees are back to
make us want to steal them give the same treatment to this year’s EMMY nominated TV shows, including “Game Of Thrones,” “True Detective,” “House Of Cards,” “Mad Men,” “Downton Abbey,” and (surprise, surpass) “Breaking Bad.” Check out the video above for your daily dose of smiles, and don’t forget to tune in to The EMMY Awards live on NBC this Monday, August 25th, at 8 p.m. EST.

Phillip and Sue Lauer have (at least) two big passions in life: their pugs Roxy, Blue and Bono, and the book/TV series “Game of Thrones.” Naturally, like any decent dog-obsessed nerds with a lot of time of their hands, they’ve meticulously recreated the HBO show with their pups playing the various characters, including Jon Snow, Joffrey Baratheon and Daenarys Targaryen. There’s even a puppy-sized Iron Throne that took two full days to make! Impressive. [Buzzfeed]
Dang. Looks like Jon Snow found some time for crunches beyond The Wall. But is there nothing that can put a smile on his damn pretty face? [Imgur]
As far as I’m concerned, there are only two “Game of Thrones” recaps you should be interested in: 1) the in-depth episode recaps at the New York Observer and 2) the hi-laaaaarious Funny or Die series “Gay of Thrones,” in which hair stylist Jonathan dishes on each episode while he works. I can only imagine Jonathan straight up made water in his 2xist smallclothes when A Song of Ice & Fire creator George R. R. Martin agreed to make an appearance. I love the fact that his cameo is also a reference to “The Princess Bride,” one of the best movies ever. (There are spoilers for the season four finales, so beware.) [Funny Or Die]
For far too long, dragons have been terrorizing helpless goats and children in the Seven Kingdoms, and it’s time to do something about it. Call 1-800-DRA-CARYS to donate to the worthy cause of catching fire-breathing dragons and finding them forever catacombs. And heads up! If you call in the next 30 minutes, you’ll be sent your very own photo of a dragon you’re helping to enslave right now. Don’t wait — call now, before another child of Mereen is dumped at Khaleesi’s feet. (Props to my buddy Greg Seals at The Daily Dot for making this hilarious spoof.) [The Daily Dot]
