Cersei Lannister’s controversial nude scene in the upcoming fifth series of fantasy epic Game of Thrones has finally been given the go-ahead after producers reached a compromise with officials in Croatia. Producers’ plans for Cersei – portrayed by actress Lena Headey – to bear all had originally been held up but have now been given the go ahead.
Fans of George R. R Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novel series will know that Cersei’s naked walk of shame is coming up in the hotly-anticipated series 5, but producers nearly had to scrap the scene after complaints. Shot in the Croatian capital Dubrovnik, the city’s Catholic Church of St Nicholas opposed a request to film on “immoral” grounds.
The church opposes public nudity but a compromise has now been reached, according to TMZ. The Independent report that producers will be allowed to film Cersei’s nude scene »

There was concern that Cersei’s pivotal nude penitence scene would be absent from the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, but it has recently been revealed that the show will be able to move forward with the crucial scene.
Cersei's Nude Scene Saved
Game of Thrones was scheduled to film actress Lena Headey in the naked Cersei scene in which she's stipped and shamed by the High Septon last week. However, the Croatian film commission would not permit it based on the feelings of the church in which the scene would be filmed. The church, in Dubrovnik, Croatia, apparently has strict policies when it comes to nudity and public displays of sexuality, according to TMZ.
The local film commission, under the direction of the church, refused to give Game of Thrones' producers the permit for the scene that was scheduled to be shot in the Church of St. »
"Game of Thrones" producers were in a tough spot recently when their filming permit application was rejected by Croatian officials, citing religious objections to a nude scene set to be filmed in and around a local church. But a new report says that the show was able to come to an agreement with the government, and shooting of the scene in question will commence -- with some adjustments.
TMZ reports that officials from the Church of St. Nicholas -- whose power is absolute in Dubrovik, Croatia, where "Game of Thrones" is currently filming -- relented to producers' pleas to allow them to shoot the sequence, which features Cersei emerging naked from a church, and wandering through the streets. While the scene is an iconic one from George R.R. Martin's books, church leaders didn't see it that way, denying access due to an objection over public displays of sexuality.

Defiance concludes its second season with an unsatisfying finale. Despite engaging characters, the show still hasn't found its feet...
This review contains spoilers.
2.12 All Things Must Pass & 2.13 I Almost Prayed
With undue haste Syfy rushed to the end of Defiance, showing the final four stories in just two weeks. I'm not sure why, but it probably doesn’t bode well for a third season, I’d suggest. Episode twelve splices directly into the previous story, where Irisa has stabbed Tommy, and poor Nolan is dragging him through the winter woodland that surrounds Defiance.
I’ve had issues with Tommy’s character all season, and here it all came to a head. Because a large amount of All Things Must Pass was occupied with making him seem a more sympathetic character, back-filing unseen events only then to let him die seemed like a waste. It felt like that three week homework »

Cersei Lannister doth Finally have permission to stroll the streets of King's Landing in her birthday suit -- but her majesty hath some holy guidelines that must be followed.By order of the Croatian film commission, Cersei ... played by Lena Headey ... now hath the green light to walk the streets of Dubrovik in the nude -- as long as she never sets foot in a church.As we doth previously reported ...

After agreeing (with some persuasion from Davos) to fund Stannis Baratheon's new war effort to seize the Iron Throne from the Lannisters in the season 4 episode "The Laws of Gods and Men", it appears Braavosi banker Tycho Nestoris will return next year to keep a close eye on his investment. EW report that Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Doctor Who, The League Of Gentlemen) will reprise the role, and is expected on the Croatia set next week. Also, the site have an update on the recent report that a very famous scene from the books involving a naked Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister was being held up due to a conflict with a Dubrovnik church. Apparently that's "old news" now, and a new filming location has been sorted. So, great news all 'round then! »

Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lust and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men...all will play the 'Game of Thrones.' Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Ser Jaime Lannister, Lena Headey as Queen Cersei Lannister, Emilia Clarke as Queen Daenerys Targaryen, Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Aidan Gillen as Lord Petyr Baelish, Charles Dance as Lord Tywin Lannister, Natalie Dormer as Lady Margaery Tyrell, Liam Cunningham as Ser Davos Seaworth, Stephen Dillane as King Stannis Baratheon, Carice van Houten as Lady Melisandre, Alfie Allen as Prince Theon Greyjoy, John Bradley as Samwell Tarly, »
Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

Digital Spy presents the full list of winners and nominees at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, which took place on Monday night (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, California.
Outstanding Comedy Series
Modern Family - Winner
Lead Actress In A Comedy Series
Lead Actor In A Comedy Series
William H Macy - Shameless
Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series
Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.
As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).
The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »

Whilst several big name shows including Game of Thrones and True Detective where up for several categories, it was Breaking Bad that scooped-up the main acting prizes which are whole-heartedly deserved and a fitting way to say goodbye to the show which ended last year.
Other shows that performed well were comedy series Modern Family for which Ty Burrell won best actor, and American Horror Story: Coven which saw both Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates take home the big acting trophies. Everyone’s favourite British sleuth also did well as Benedict Cumberbatch won for his role in series Sherlock.

In one of the stranger moments of the Primetime Emmy Awards, host Seth Meyers and Andy Samberg took the stage to introduce parody artist “Weird Al” Yankovic, who created a medley of TV theme songs with added lyrics.
With a large group of dancers behind him, Yankovic riffed off the theme songs for “Mad Men,” “Scandal,” “Homeland,” “Modern Family” and “Game of Thrones,” giving each lyrics that describe the show’s plot. He played off of Kerry Washington’s “Scandal” relationship, singing, “It’s not because she’s cold, it’s because she just loves the president,” while also ruminating about “Modern Family’s” appeal by mentioning, “a couple of gay guys.”
The sequence ended with a dancer in the audience providing “Game of Thrones” writer George R.R. Martin with a typewriter as Yankovic told him to, “type as fast as you can.” Samberg followed up the performance with a »

Billy Crystals moving tribute to Robin Williams at the EmmysEmmy Awards: full list of winners
A Quick Summary: Breaking Bad won just about everything and everyone cheered. So did Modern Family and everyone grumbled. British people won a whole bunch of awards too for Sherlock and stuff. Barely any of them showed up to get their trophies. Maybe theyre mad that we call it soccer? I dont know. Seth Meyers kinda sucked, Sofia Vergara was turned into a prop, everyone is white and male, and nothing every changes and the Emmys is awful. In other news, the Oscars is only six months away.
Thanks for joining us and goodnight!
Alright everyone, thats it for the Emmys. Enjoy your local news and lets get together next year »
