Yep. And I don’t understand why.w because “The Door”, “Home” and maybe the finale seems much more apropriate submitions for writting than this episode.June 20, 2016 at 9:47 am #1201854082This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.June 20, 2016 at 10:11 am #1201854092
What I realized last season is that David and Dan’s Emmy episode selection is not that good. Hardholm clearly should have won for Best Director. I hope they don’t make the same mistake by not submitting last night’s episode.June 20, 2016 at 10:16 am #1201854099
Battle of the Bastards is on both the Writing and Directing ballots, if I recall correctly.
However, the episode is their ONLY submission for writing.
In directing, Battle of the Bastards joins Home, Book of the Stranger, No One, and The Door.

I hope all of you know that Writing isn’t only dialogue. But if The Leftover is nominated for International Assassin nothing will beat it, maybe Bate’s Motel stunning “Forever” but I don’t think it will get the nod. There’s no much competition in Writing this year.
On the episode. It seem like Sansa was very disappointed when she saw that Jon was still alive and running after Ramsey. I think she wanted both Jon and Rickon dead (along with Jon’s army) that’s why she never told Jon about the Vale’s army, she knew they were coming, it wasn’t a deu ex machina thing she was with Littlefinger when the army arrive.
The Oscar needs to get rid of the preferential ballot so it can name a deserving movie as Best Picture again.June 20, 2016 at 11:01 am #1201854125
You have insane opinions about Sansa.June 20, 2016 at 11:17 am #1201854131
Coming back from my mini-break to say how much I loved this episode. I can’t praise it hard enough. Just absolutely outstanding work.
I really really hope they don’t pass over Miguel Sapochnik again. The directing race is over as far as I’m concerned.
They’re really hitting it out of the park this season, imo.June 20, 2016 at 11:20 am #1201854133
Did Sansa look sad when the wildling carry Rickon’s body?…She was very quit to threw the Bran’s heir under the bus, she don’t trust Jon. Actually if she have told Jon about The Vale’s army Jon would have waited and thousands of lifes wouldn’t be wasted.

Can we also take a moment to appreciate some of the stunning cinematography in Battle of the Bastards too? Ser Davos standing by the snowy graves with the sunrise in the background was sublime.

The spectacle overwhelmed, so this is probably my favourite episode of the series. The battle was a technical marvel and I was emotionally invested in seeing Ramsey finally go down. This was pretty much the first time that I have appreciated Iwan Rheon. Hard to see it losing directing, but we shall see how name recognition comes into play this time. Maybe Miguel Sapochnik misses for Paris Barclay on Empire. Sansa keeping the Vale a secret does not make sense.June 20, 2016 at 12:08 pm #1201854162
I prefer Blackwater as far as E9s go. I might like The Door better as far as S6 goes.June 20, 2016 at 12:19 pm #1201854165
Sansa is, for me, the best thing in the serie right now. So happy to see her smile in the end of this episode.June 20, 2016 at 12:25 pm #1201854166
The Door winning writing and then Battle of the Bastards winning directing. Also if Emilia Clarke is going to pull a surprise this year and win (that’s the only way it’ll happen) it will be this season. I would love if it was her and Sophie Turner nominated. The women in this episode totally dominated. Also I remembered I love Tyrion, but also Davos is going to straight up kill Melisandre. Fun.
Ummm no go away with your wrong opinions on The Red Queen!!!
In all seriousness this was the best overall episode of the season although the ending of ‘The Door’ was the best sequence.
Does this deserve Directing? Yes. Writing? Absolutely NOT.
For Your Consideration:
Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)June 20, 2016 at 12:55 pm #1201854172

Please do not put this out into the universe!
