Are the Lannister siblings the most deserving of Emmys? 3 other ‘Game of Thrones’ families who deserve recognition

Are the Lannister siblings the most deserving of Emmys? 3 other ‘Game of Thrones’ families who deserve recognition
Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Lena Headey have all been nominated for Emmys this year for their performances as Tyrion, Jaime and Cersei Lannister, respectively. Their nominations are a just reward for a trio of acting masterclasses – Dinklage was at his usual best, picking up his seventh bid for the role, while Coster-Waldau executed the brilliant story arc of Jaime with an emotional wallop. Headey, meanwhile, simply lit up the screen every scene she was – devouring every line with delicious malice as Cersei.

But Westeros is packed full of families and siblings, all portrayed by one marvelous actor or actress or another. Are the Lannister trio the most deserving of their Emmy success? Or is there another pair or collection of “Game of Thrones” siblings who deserved to be rewarded and never were? Here are three sets of siblings who deserved more awards success than they ever got.

October Horrors 2017 Day 21 – Prometheus (2012)

Prometheus, 2012.

Directed by Ridley Scott.

Starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Charlize Theron, Logan Marshall-Green, Sean Harris, Rafe Spall, Emun Elliott, Benedict Wong, and Kate Dickie.

Synopsis:

The research vessel Prometheus carries a team of scientists to a mysterious planet on a mission to uncover the secrets regarding the origins of the human race. Far from meeting their makers, the scientists instead uncover a centuries-old plot that if successful could lead to the extinction of humanity.

After four films following the character of Ripley and two abysmal crossovers with the Predator franchise, the Alien franchise had seemingly run out of steam and looked like it would finally enter retirement.

However, some disagreed and none more so than director Ridley Scott, who owes his very career to the original 1979 film that catapulted him to fame, and felt that there was still life (and money) to be wrung from the series.

Newly Launched BFI Filmography Reveals Stark Gender Disparity in UK Film

Jodie Whittaker, one of the BFI Filmography’s most prolific actresses, in “Adult Life Skills

Today the BFI introduced the BFI Filmography, a complete, living record of all the 10,000-and-counting UK films released since 1911. While the resource is, as the BFI describes, “a treasure trove of new information,” it is also a revealing account of the pronounced gender inequality present in UK movies, both on and offscreen.

Among other issues, the filmography is plagued with gender stereotypes. The BFI found that the four character types women are most likely to portray are prostitutes, housekeepers, nurses, and receptionists. Of course, that’s when women are onscreen at all. As the filmography shows, the past century hasn’t featured much change in opportunity for female actors: women comprised 31 percent of film casts in 1913 and, so far, represent 30 percent of the casts in 2017.

Overall, female actors tend to work less than their male counterparts. For example, the most prolific male actor working today is Michael Caine, who has made 70 films to date. The most prolific actress still working is Judi Dench, who has made 41 films.

As for women in behind-the-scenes roles, the BFI Filmography includes only 23 projects with a majority-female crew, which amounts to about one percent. Just seven percent of the films made since 2000 were made by a majority-female crew. As one would expect, the number of women working on film crews has increased over the past 100 years — but the rate of change is still frustratingly slow. Women accounted for three percent of film crews in 1913, and by the early 2000s that number had grown to 27 percent. Women comprise 34 percent of this year’s film crews.

Women helmed only 4.5 percent of the BFI filmography and, like their onscreen counterparts, female directors tend to work much less than men. With 13 movies, Muriel Box (“Rattle of a Simple Man,” “The Piper’s Tune”) is the filmography’s most prolific female director. Maurice Elvey (“The Suicide Club,” “Love in a Wood”) is the most prolific male director with 151 films. That’s right: Elvey made over 11 times as many films as Box.

Director of Photography is the crew role that features the largest gender gap. Women DoPs have shot just 1.3 percent of UK films. With eight films, Nina Kellgren (“Young Soul Rebels”) is the female DoP with the most work experience.

The gender disparity of the BFI Filmography is disheartening of course, but it could also be a springboard for reform in the UK film industry — and not just for women’s representation. The lack of racial diversity in UK movies is also startling: 59 percent of the last decade’s films featured no black actors. As the BFI stated: “Whilst the BFI Filmography launches with a detailed look at gender, it is the intention to continue to build on the data, to provide a greater understanding of representation on and off screen.” Here’s hoping that studios really consider the BFI Filmography and decide that the next 100 years of cinema will be a better, more inclusive place.

Some additional stats from the filmography are below, courtesy of the BFI. Go to the BFI Filmography website to look through the new resource and find out more.

Review: Game of Thrones – Season 7 – Episode 7

Alas, the Song of Ice and Fire draws to a close once again.

Season 7 really has been one hell of a thrill ride. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) met Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) met, and brought down, a dragon, Arya (Maisie Williams) and Sansa (Sophie Turner) were finally reunited and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) managed to put yet another bun in Cersie’s (Lena Headey) oven. It’s also boasted the best battle scenes that Game of Thrones has shown yet, with the production team finally being gifted the budget the show has been dying for since day one. Indeed, spectacle wise, it would be very easy to label Season 7 as the best of all.

However.

Things have seemed a tad – un Game of Throneish this year. Maybe it’s because the story is finally getting going, and characters are being reunited, that have been apart for a number of seasons.

Anna Paquin and Holliday Grainger to Star in Period Romance from Annabel Jankel

Anna Paquin in the upcoming miniseries “Alias Grace”: Sabrina Lantos/Netflix

Oscar winner Anna Paquin is switching from one period project to another. The “True Blood” star, who will next be seen in Sarah Polley’s “Alias Grace” miniseries on Netflix, has signed on to star in “Tell it to the Bees” alongside Holliday Grainger (“My Cousin Rachel”), Deadline reports. “D.O.A.” director Annabel Jankel will helm the project, an adaptation of Fiona Shaw’s 2009 novel of the same name.

Paquin will portray Dr. Jean Markham, a woman who returns home to run her late father’s medical practice. “When a school-yard scuffle lands young Charlie (newcomer Gregor Selkirk) in her office, she invites him to visit the hives in her garden and to tell his secrets to the bees as she once did,” Deadline summarizes. “The friendship between the boy and the doctor brings his mother Lydia (Grainger) into Jean’s world. The women find themselves drawn to one another in a way that Jean recognizes and fears, and which Lydia could never have expected. But in 1950s small-town Britain, the secret won’t stay hidden forever.”

“Tell it to the Bees” will co-star Kate Dickie (Alice Lowe’s “Prevenge”), Lauren Lyle (“Outlander”), Emun Elliott (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”), and Steven Robertson (“T2: Trainspotting”).

Principal photography has already kicked off in Scotland.

Sisters and collaborators Henrietta Ashworth and Jessica Ashworth (“Dixi,” “Fresh Meat”) wrote the screenplay for “Tell it to the Bees,” which Jankel describes as “an unholy mash-up of 1950s social and magical realism.”

Jankel is producing the project alongside Daisy Allsop, Nick Hill, and Nik Bower. Alison Owen, Lizzie Francke, Sunny Vohra, Deepak Nayar, and Ben Roberts serve as EPs.

Paquin’s recent projects include “Bellevue,” the Jane Maggs and Adrienne Mitchell-created CBC crime drama centered around the disappearance of a transgender teen. Besides “Alias Grace,” you can catch her next in “The Parting Glass,” a drama following a grieving family as they travel to collect their late sister’s belongings.

Grainger appears next in the Alicia Vikander-led romance “Tulip Fever,” out August 25.

‘Game of Thrones’: Why Bran Will Be the One to Beat Littlefinger at His Own Game

‘Game of Thrones’: Why Bran Will Be the One to Beat Littlefinger at His Own Game
On “Game of Thrones,” Littlefinger might be the most dangerous man in Westeros, but he may have met his match.

Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish (Aidan Gillen) is the epitome of a Westerosi success story. Although of low birth in this feudal society, his ambition, wits and ruthlessness allowed him to rise in the ranks until he finally became the Lord Protector of the Vale.

In contrast, Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) was born into nobility but had much of his comfort and privilege stripped from him: half of his family members have been killed, he lost his ability to walk, and as the new Three-Eyed Raven, he is no longer heir to Winterfell.
