Primetime Emmy Award nominations were announced this morning, and "Game of Thrones" fans in the feed saw a few reasons to get excited, including a Best Drama nod and a Best Supporting Actor nomination for Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister. C.B. Cebulski and Brian Reed were both behind him, while Ryan North got all pumped for "Adventure Time."
You can bet that "Game of Thrones" will be a hot topic at Comic-Con International in San Diego next week. Joe Kelly and Brian Michael Bendis both had the show on their minds and shared some advice for everyone else who plans on attending. Check that out down below, along with a response to the leaked "Dark Knight Rises" trailer.
