Game of Thrones won the Emmy for most outstanding drama series Monday at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards.

The seventh season of Game of Thrones won the series its third Emmy in the category. It was the show’s second Emmy of the evening, after Peter Dinklage’s win for his role as Tyrion Lannister.

Game of Thrones beat out The Americans, The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, Stranger Things, This is Us, and Westworld.

Each season of Game of Thrones has been nominated for best drama at the Emmys since its first season debuted at the awards show in 2011. Seasons 5 and 6 both took home the Emmy in 2015 and 2016 respectively. A handful of other actors including Lena Headey, Kit Harington, and Emilia Clarke have also earned Emmy nominations over the years.

While the seventh season of Game of Throne is not widely regarded as the best of the series, it was certainly a big one and the hype around the show has not died down ahead of its next season.

Game of Thrones returns for its eighth and final season in 2019.

Final trailer for ‘Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown’ is painful and poignant

“Everybody who had dreams of traveling with Tony, it’s exactly as cool as you think it is.”

“W. Kamau Bell narrates the last trailer for the twelfth and final season of CNN’s Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. Kamau’s voice over is particularly fitting considering his collaboration episode with the celebrity chef was the last episode Bourdain would ever narrate.

The series return takes Bourdain and Bell to Kenya. The following episodes will show Bourdain alongside other guests in Manhattan and Texas. (The uncompleted footage shot in Paris at the time of Bourdain’s death is unlikely to be shown.)

The series’ final episode will serve as a tribute to Bourdain’s life featuring interviews with cast and crew discussing the show’s legacy.

The final episodes of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown will begin premiering September 23 at 9pm ET on CNN.”

American Horror Story: Apocalypse Is Ryan Murphy’s Infinity Wars. Here’s a Primer…

Charmaine Blake

“Young, passionate men in form-fitting costumes; folks who go by the name “witch”; monsters gleefully planning the end of civilization. No, this isn’t the Marvel Cinematic Universe—it’s the weird, twisted world of American Horror Story. It may not be as intricately plotted and intertwined as the MCU, but the world of Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology series is full of enough recurring themes and characters to fill whole racks full of comics. And the latest installment, Apocalypse is as close to Infinity War as anything in the Murphy-verse to date.

So, does that mean that if you haven’t watched the seven installments leading up to tonight’s Season 8 premiere you’ll be totally in the dark? Probably not. AHS is still an anthology show, after all, and each season typically manages to stand on its own. But all of the seasons do share a common mythology and Apocalypse is being billed as the long-awaited merging of the show’s premiere season—later named Murder House—and it’s Heathers-with-witches season, Coven. So while some seasons may have referenced others—Murder House foreshadowed Roanoke, for example—this one should have far more connective tissue than most. (We say “should have” because, frankly, it’s hard to know anything for sure; Murphy loves to tease, but he hates to spoil.)

What do you have to know going into the new season? It’s impossible to know for sure, but there are a few things to keep in mind as you sit down to watch Apocalypse.

Character Connections

Since the latest season of AHS is a crossover, there are a few faces definitely returning. For one, we know that Ben and Vivien Harmon (Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton, respectively) will be back as the family who initially moved into Murder House in Los Angeles in Season 1. Also back for more is Taissa Farmiga, who played the couple’s daughter, Violet, but based on photos posted to Instagram from the set, she’ll be back as her Coven character, Zoe Benson. She could, however, play multiple roles. Murphy-verse stalwart Sarah Paulson has appeared in every season of AHS, and according to the teasers for Apocalypse will be leading the current one, so actors taking on many characters will likely be standard this time around.

 Speaking of, what is the plot of Season 8? Little is known (well, Murphy did say it would be like The Love Boat, but that wasn’t meant to be taken literally), but the essential premise seems to be that some mushroom-cloud type event has left the world in disarray and Paulson’s Ms. Wilhemina Venable has created some sort of bunker where she’s rebuilding civilization in her image. Then there are the witches from Coven—Paulson’s Cordelia Foxx, Emma Roberts as Madison Montgomery, Gabourey Sidibe as Queenie, Lily Rabe and Misty Day, Frances Conroy as Myrtle Snow, Stevie Nicks as herself, the aforementioned Taissa Farmiga as Zoe Benson—who are likely there to either help or stop the antichrist…………………..”
