Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on HBO's 'Game of Thrones,' is currently flying as high as she was in one of Season 5's final scenes on the back of her dragon, Drogon. She was nominated for an Emmy for her role on the show this past week, one of 'Game of Thrones' 24 total nominations this year.

Clarke sat down with the Los Angeles Times following news of her nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama to discuss her success and that of the show. But it's what Clarke had to say about the show's future that's exciting fans everywhere.

2015 Emmy Award Nominations
After much anticipation, the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations are here -- albeit with a bit of controversy aka funny.

It's that time of the year when your favorite actors, actresses, directors, writers, you name it (still, nothing for the celeb assistants who tolerate their idiosyncratic bosses) are showered with accolades for their perennial roles and endearing projects.

Not surprisingly, HBO and Game of Thrones left everyone and everything in the dust. And, yes, there is always a bit of controversy for Emmy Award nominations. This year's snub-rant award for the 2014-2015 televisio...

'The Strain' Is Back For Season 2!

The Strain
The absolute best moment of The Strain's second season premiere is its first five minutes. That's not a knock on the many minutes that follow (solid minutes, all of them), but that opening sequence? Totally killer.

We open on Grandma Setrakian and little Abe in early 1900s Romania. She's chopping onions, he's nursing a bowl of soup (why is she chopping onions when the soup's already made? Oh well) and recounting the story of Josef Sardu- the man who would one day become The Master.

That flashback's the only part of "BK, NY" directed by series creator Guillermo del Toro, and his stamp is a...

Did 'True Detective' Kill Off Its Main Character?

'True Detective' Review: Musings On 'Maybe Tomorrow'
As suspected, True Detective was never going to be the type of show with the courage to kill off a main character in its second episode. Even though Ray Velcoro is the show’s most—and only—interesting character, that would have been a major, fascinating turning point for the show. It could have raised the very low stakes for the other characters and forced them to shine a bit more.

It doesn’t take long to reveal that Ray was only shot with buckshot, with no more damage than to his piss-soaked clothing. The problem with this sort of fake out is that the show just exposed itself as a show mo...

'True Detective': 5 Memorable Moments From 'Night Finds You'
Is True Detective a shadow of its former self? So many of the things that made the first season a success have fallen short so far in this season. Everything from the dialogue to the detective dynamics just doesn’t live up to what they once were. And since those were the elements that made True Detective more than just another murder mystery with a famous cast, the show isn’t quite the stand out it used to be. If season 2 had been the introductory season, it probably wouldn’t have the following it originally had.

However, there is still some potential. Ray Velcoro is one of those Rust Cohl...

Will 'True Detective' Season 2 Live Up To The First Season?

'True Detective' Season 2 Premiere: Ways 'The Western Book Of Th
True Detective’s first season was without a doubt a cultural phenomenon. Rust Cohle’s insane speeches were just as memorable as his flash forward facial hair. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson’s chemistry doubled, as did their career resurgence. But the lackluster ending marred some of the show’s overall shine. True Detective’s second season not only has a lot of live up to. It also has a lot to make up for.

While the show has made a valiant effort to fix some of its worst errors, it’s also lost some of its charm. Replacing the Southern Gothic setting is a familiar Los Angeles locati...

9 Reasons To Get Excited For 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6
We're still trying to wrap our heads around the season five finale of ‘Game of Thrones,’ which had to have been one of the craziest season finales in recent memory. Perhaps the hardest part of all, though, is the realization that we aren't getting another taste until season six next year (presumably in April again). It's nothing to be too bummed out about though, because there are a whole bunch of reasons why 'Game of Thrones' season six could be the best one yet, and here are just a couple of (very spoiler-heavy) reasons why.

Who Died During The 'Game Of Thrones' Season 5 Finale?
Game of Thrones concluded its controversial fifth season Sunday night, and the Internet is ablaze with fans reacting to the multiple dramatic scenes that played out, which included multiple deaths. Don't go any further if you haven't watched last night's episode, dear reader. Here's who (probably) met their demise.

Stannis Baratheon

When you stop and think about it, what happened to self-appointed King Stannis Baratheon wasn't that surprising. The episode opened with half of Stannis' army abandoning him and his wife committing suicide by hanging. But that's what happens when you decide to...

'Game Of Thrones' Review: Burning Questions From The Season 5 Fi
Every season finale of Game of Thrones leaves us with an overabundance of questions that keep us awake at night until the next season finally premieres. “Mother’s Mercy” was no different. We had everything that makes for a good Game of Thrones finale: battles, introductions of interesting storylines, and shocking deaths. But there were also quite a bit head scratching moments, such as Sansa’s total lack of screen time, the whereabouts of the Tyrells, and why the Sand Snakes continue to exist.

Here are the biggest burning questions from “Mother’s Mercy:”
