The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Is Not Happy With The Season Finale And These Spoilers Do Not Give Us Much To Look Forward To

With one episode to go, everyone is wondering how will “Game Of Thrones” end? For the past nine years, each Sunday has been dedicated to the sitting on the couch, borrowing our cousins HBO GO password, and diving into the mad world of its creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. All that will be over, come Sunday, and we’re not sure how we’re ever going to live without it. Though before any of that, we must settle on the last battle. Who will live and who will die? We’ve combed the internet and asked ever GoT junkie, and here’s what we found.

As the show finally concludes, even cast members aren’t very happy with the ending.

Several actors have expressed concern about how the last episode is shaping out, and they’re not too pleased. Last week when actress Lena Headey who plays Cersei Lannister died in the episode “The Bells,” she, like most of us, wasn’t ready to see her go.

“I wanted her to have some big piece or fight with somebody,” Headey said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. She said she initially had mixed feelings about her demise, but then grew to understand why she had to die. “The more we talked about it the more it seemed like the perfect end for her,” she said. “They came into the world together and now they leave together.”

Fans have proven themselves to be quite fed up with the series, and their momentum has only gained traction with the recent beheading of the series only Black woman and Daenerys’s sacking of the Red Keep.

Actress Nathalie Emmanuel, who played Missandei, voiced her concern over representation. If the show lacked diversity before, it truly did after her death on the episode titled “The Last of the Starks.”

“To be honest with you, when I read the script for it, I was like, not surprised that she died because I had been expecting it for a really long time,” Emmanuel said to Entertainment Weekly. “So many people die in that show and I guess I didn’t think I was any safer than anybody else in that respect. But I am fully aware and engaged in the conversation of representation because I am the only woman of color in this show that has been on there regularly for many seasons.”

Let’s get back to the real deal: who will survive?

Will Arya kill Daenerys?

Arya Stark, played by Maisie Williams, has come a long way from Season One, but does she have what it takes to kill Daenerys? While it might be a long shot, Sansa and Arya do have something planned. This could be the biggest plot twist ever.

Someone is out to get Daenerys, that is for sure.

Some speculate that Varys, may have tried to poison Daenerys in episode five. Actor Conleth Hill, who played Varys, wasn’t pleased with the death of his character either. We think he’s trying to throws off and think he won’t be showing up again in the last episode.

Maybe her own troops are coming for her.

In a preview of the season finale, we see Daenerys in a dismal scene where the kingdom is up in flames and maybe they’re going to turn on her.

Then again, Jaime Lannister could be alive!

There’s still so many possibilities!

What do you think will happen in the last episode?

A ‘Father Of The Bride’ Sequel Is Officially Coming— And It’s Going To Be Super Cuban-American!

Break out the tres leches! It’s gonna be a wedding of “epic proportions!” Cuban-style!

That’s right, the beloved 1991 film Father of the Bride is getting a remake. This time, the film will star 64-year-old actor Andy Garcia, the patriarch of a Cuban American family, struggling to see his daughter walk down the aisle.

Garcia will star in and executive produce the upcoming Warner Bros. remake of Father of the Bride, a story that will follow a Cuban American family.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brad Pitt‘s production company, Plan B will produce the remake with Gaz Alazraki, director of Club de Cuervos, set to helm.

“I’m very excited to join The Father of the Bride, a beloved film that has brought so much joy to so many over the years and to represent my Cuban culture and heritage in this story,” Garcia explained in a statement published by THR. “I commend Warner Brothers for their foresight and celebrate this opportunity they have created.” 

Garcia’s remake is the latest in the franchise, which first came out in 1950 and starred actor Spencer Tracey and Elizabeth Taylor.

The first film inspired a sequel, also starring Tracey and Taylor, called Father’s Little Dividend. The film was remade forty-years later with Steve Martin and Diane Keaton in the 1991 version. Garcia’s upcoming take will focus on a similar storyline. According to THR, “the latest remake will center on the father of a soon-to-be bride coming to terms with daughters’ nuptials. But the latest take will be told through the relationships in a big, sprawling Cuban-American family.”

The 1991 cast of the film reunited in September for a Netflix special.

This Mexican Filmmaker’s Six-Pack Inspired The Oscar Statue

That’s right, Oscar’s real name is actually Emilio.

When it comes to the Academy Awards, there’s nothing more iconic than the actual Oscar award. That’s right, it’s not Björk’s swan dress or Jennifer Lopez’s beloved pink gown, when people think of the Oscar Awards it’s always the rip-chested statue with broad shoulders and muscled legs. The art deco god that everyone in entertainment dreams of one-day holding: the Oscar award.

But, as familiar as he may be, it turns out we don’t know Oscar very well.

Emilio Fernandez, born in Coahuila, Mexico, became the face of the Academy Awards thanks to a close friend.

Fernandez grew up during the Mexican Revolution and according to PRI, later left high school to become an officer for the Huertista rebels. In 1925, he was captured and sentenced to 20 years in prison but managed to escape his sentence and fled to Los Angeles.

Soon enough he began working as an extra in Hollywood and picked up the nickname “El Indio” when he met Dolores Del Rio, the silent film actress and wife of MGM Art Director Cedric Gibbons. the nickname was terrible but Del Rio and Fernandez became friends and when her husband was given an opportunity to design the award statuette fate happened.

Del Rio suggested Fernandez as a model for the statue and her husband agreed.

Fernandez’s life became much greater than a statue though, he became one of the biggest stars of the Golden Age of Mexican cinema. He worked in numerous film productions in Mexico and in Hollywood starring in the 1944 film María Candelaria, the 1947 film Río Escondido and Vìctimas del Pecado made in 1951.
