"It is easy to confuse what is with what ought to be, especially when what is has worked out in your favor."
- Tyrion Lannister

"Lannister. Baratheon. Stark. Tyrell. They're all just spokes on a wheel. This one's on top, then that's ones on top and on and on it spins, crushing those on the ground. I'm not going to stop the wheel. I'm going to break the wheel."

- Daenerys Targaryen

"The Lord of Light wants his enemies burned. The Drowned God wants them drowned. Why are all the gods such vicious cunts? Where's the God of Tits and Wine?"

- Tyrion Lannister

"The common people pray for rain, healthy children, and a summer that never ends. It is no matter to them if the high lords play their game of thrones, so long as they are left in peace. They never are."

- Jorah Mormont

"These bad people are what I'm good at. Out talking them. Out thinking them."

- Tyrion Lannister

"What happened? I think fundamentals were trumped by mechanics and, to a lesser extent, by demographics."

- Michael Barone

"If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to."

Game of Thrones won for Best Drama Series. Benioff and Weiss won for Best Drama Writing for "Mother's Mercy." Peter Dinklage won for best supporting actor. David Nutter won for Best Drama Directing for "Mother's Mercy."

Tatiana Maslany was nominated for Best Drama Actress but didn't win.  The Knick was nominated. Veep won a bunch also. Silicon Valley was nominated. Better Call Saul and Bob Odenkirk were nominated.

And Evan Rachel Wood and Olivia Wilde were on HBO's Dolly and Em, two of my favorites.
