Cersei Lannister’s Controversial Naked Scene Will Be Shown On “Game Of Thrones”

Cersei Lannister's Controversial Naked Scene Will Be Shown On Game Of Thrones

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]

The First Same-Sex “So You Think You Can Dance” Routine Was Worth The Wait

Travis Wall's Choreography Is Flawless As Usual

“So You Think You Can Dance” has long been one of the few truly inspiring, talent-filled, positive reality TV shows, but it’s not perfect. Up until last night’s episode, the show had never shown a dance routine focused on same-sex relationships, featuring same-sex dance partners. But man, while it took the show 11 years, it was worth the wait. Travis Wall (the runner-up in season two), himself a gay man, choreographed a moving routine about the fight for marriage equality, featuring two men and two women who first dance in pairs and then as a foursome. What an important moment for an already wonderful show. [Buzzfeed]

5 Reasons "Orphan Black"'s Tatiana Maslany Is The Best Even Without An Emmy Nomination

With the Emmy Awards coming up on Monday, we thought we’d pay tribute to Tatiany Maslany, who was clearly robbed of a nomination for her numerous clone roles in BBC America’s conspiracy thriller television series “Orphan Black.” Just renewed for a third season, the show has grown from cult status to a television audience favorite. There’s even a Tumblr blog for super fans — The Clone Club — a new comic book on the way and the introduction of male clones in the show’s second season finale. Here are five award-worthy reasons why audiences love watching Tatiana on “Orphan Black.” Keep reading »

Black Actress Octavia Spencer Is “Red Band Society”‘s Resident “Scary Bitch”

Having already seen “The Fault In Our Stars” and “Glee,” I don’t think I’ll be tuning in for Fox’s “Red Band Society,” a new dramedy produced by Steven Spielberg about teenagers living in a hospital. But it’s come to my attention that on a promotional ad for the show, which debuts September 17th, the Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer, who is Black, is labeled the “Scary Bitch.” Portraying Black women as unpredictable and scary — gee, we’ve never seen that in Hollywood before. To be sure, the show’s labeling of other characters in the promo ad isn’t too original either. For example, the hot blonde girl is the “Mean Girl” because of course she is. Still, Spencer’s “Scary Bitch” label stands out as especially harsh and problematic. There are plenty of ways to portray someone as an antagonistic character without relying on a tired stereotype. Would “Nurse Ratched” have gone over America’s collective heads? (If so, go watch “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” now.)
