    Diana Rigg all the way for Guest Actress! Her scenes were some of the best of the season!
    And considering the way the social network blew up the moment after it aired, I wouldn’t be surprised if GOT’s “Rains of Castamere” won its category too.

  2. Tom R says:

    Insert predictable sigh
    Copy and paste snub note from last year. Pretty sure they’re the same.
    Copy and paste Ron Perlman’s legendary comment.

    I really hope you’re right about Diana Rigg.
