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?

Korean Dark Comedy ‘Parasite’ Becomes The First Non-English Language Movie To Win The Oscar For Best Picture

The Academy Awards last night brought many surprise wins and losses. “Parasite,” a Korean dark comedy about the class struggle in South Korea, swept with four major awards. The movie took home the Oscar for Best Director, Best International Film, Best Original Screenplay, and the most sought after Best Picture. The night was history-making as “Parasite” is the first non-English language movie to win Best Picture.

Director Bong Joon-ho made history last night with his film “Parasite.”

“Parasite” was competing for the award against “1917,” “Jojo Rabbit,” “The Irishman,” “Little Women,” “Marriage Story,” “Ford v Ferrari,” “Joker,” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

Director Bong Joon-ho made history with his film. “Parasite” is the first-ever non-English language film to win the award for Best Picture. There have only been 11 non-English movies nominated for Best Picture out of the 563 that have been nominated in the Academy’s history. The award is the only one where all Academy members are allowed to cast a vote for and is presented to the producers of the film. Last year’s winner was “Green Book.”

The unexpected and welcomed victory is an important moment in Oscar’s history and people are taking notice.

In a time when certain voices are being oppressed, the elevation of these kinds of stories and communities is important. Representation matters and film is one way we can show other cultures and participate in major cultural conversations.

Compared to the rest of the movies nominated for Best Picture, “Parasite” had the lowest production budget.

The film, which cost about $11 million to produce, became Bong Joon-ho’s first film to gross over $100 million worldwide. The movie earned $167.6 million worldwide with $35.5 million made in the U.S.

“I feel like a very opportune moment in history is happening right now,” producer Kwak Sin Ae said through a translator.

The historic moment has angered some people who wish the award went to an American film.

Earlier during the award season, Bong Joon-ho stated that the Best Picture award was a local award. The statement, which caught everyone’s attention, was an unintentional drag of the Academy while also painting an honest picture of the award’s history.

The U.S. is how to the largest Korean diaspora community in the world. Around 2.2 million people in the U.S. identify as being of Korean descent. The Korean community makes up about 0.7 percent of the U.S. population. South Koreans make up 99 percent of those with Korean heritage living in the U.S.

Yet, a larger chorus of voices are praising the film and celebrating the historic win.
