12 Tweets That Perfectly Captured Last Night’s “Game of Thrones” Episode

To say that last night’s episode of “Game of Thrones” was a shocker would be an understatement. The always-unpredictable television phenomenon threw everyone for a loop when they turned one of the most beloved heroic characters on the show into a homicidal maniac.

Yes, Season 8’s fifth episode was a doozy, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t make for some great television. Twitter practically exploded last night with live-tweeted reactions and hilarious memes that helped us process all the carnage. Take a look at the best tweets below!

1. “It was all a dream…”

This meme says it all. At this point, all we can do is hope that the series finale will be Ned Stark waking up in bed next to Caitlyn and telling her: “You won’t believe the nightmare I just had.”

2. Greyworm did all of us dirty

At least Daenerys has an excuse for going crazy–madness runs in her blood. What’s your excuse for killing thousands of innocent woman and children, Greyworm? Huh? We’re waiting.

3. Literally all of our faces after Dany snapped:

In the immortal words of Tyra Banks, Cycle Four of America’s Next Top Model: “We were rooting for you!!! We were all rooting for you!!!”

4. Dany totally had us fooled with her campaign promises

Exactly this. It just doesn’t make sense–what happened to her grand ideas of peace, freedom, and prosperity for all of her subjects?

5. When Jon realized he was on the bad-guy team

But also…the dude could have helped prevent this whole scenario if he had just given the lady what she wanted when she asked for it (wink wink).

6. Here is an actual, real-life preview of next week’s episode:

We literally can’t wait to see what Daenerys has to say for herself when Jon inevitably confronts her next episode.

7. Of course, the more philosophical branch of Twitter had some thoughts

This episode just proved all of those theories about Daenerys’s wokeness as being performative. Was it simply just manipulation all along?

8. Maybe Daenarys was the mastermind behind the restrictive abortion bill all along

At this point, we wouldn’t put it past her. Sure, we used to stan for her, but in the golden words of Mariah Carey, now…we don’t know her.

9. Varys was right in the end (as he always was)

RIP, Varys. You were the shady queen none of us deserved.

WINTER IS HERE! Who will rule the Iron Throne, Guac Snow or Guacnarys Targaryan?

Get both in our new Guac of Thrones pin set!

10.The requisite Spongebob meme

The only difference being that Dany and Drogon had no intent to save King’s Landing. They wanted that ish to burn.

11. Jon and Tyrion’s reaction to Dany’s breakdown that literally everyone warned them about

Even two of the smartest, most instinctual men of GOT were blinded by their loyalty to their charismatic queen.

12. Here’s to hoping there will be some silver lining in the finale

There’s always hope for a Tormund and Brienne happy ending that might make all the carnage worth it

As A Latin Music Fan, Here Are My Picks For The 2020 Latin Grammys

As A Latin Music Fan, Here Are My Picks For The 2020 Latin Grammys

Last year’s Latin Grammys caused an uproar on social media after the nominees list was released. Many fans and artists noticed the lack of representation of the Reggaeton music genre. “Sin reggaeton no hay Latin Grammy,” read many of the posts on social media, but this year seems to be different. 

This year’s nominees accurately represent the changing culture in Latin music as it shifts more towards the reggaeton genre. Here are my top picks for some of my favorite categories. 

Record of the Year

Record of the Year is always one of the toughest picks as many of my favorite songs are included in this category. This year it seems pretty competitive as Bad Bunny’s Vete competes with Karol G and Nicki Minaj’s Tusa. Karol G is competing against herself with the song China by Anuel AA, Daddy Yankee, Karol G, Featuring Ozuna and J Balvin. But at the end, Tusa by Karol G and Nicki Minaj should take the win as the overall production of the song is what makes it so great. From the rhythm to the lyrics, Tusa deserves the Grammy. 

Album of the Year

In 2019, we had a lack of reggaeton nominees in this category, but this year the list includes two reggaeton superstars: Bad Bunny and J Balvin. Both are nominated for their joint album OASIS and their solo albums, Colores and YHLQMDLG. To me, it’s clear that the winner of this category will be Bad Bunny with YHLQMDLG. The 20-song album delivered Latin trap with a variety of moods, whether it was a post-breakup heartbreak, our on-pause summer anthems, or the heartfelt thank you at the end. This album was highly anticipated and it delivered.

Best New Artist

The top contestants in this category are Anuel AA,  Rauw Alejandro, and Cazzu. While Rauw Alejandro has had some big hits this year, such as “El Efecto,” “Tattoo,” “Elegi,” and “TBT,” it is very likely that Anuel AA will take the Grammy home. Anuel AA was snubbed from a best new artist nomination last year, but he has been very successful since then which shows his growth as a new artist. 

Song of the Year

While there are many great songs nominated in this category, “ADMV” by Maluma stands out the most. The song was released during quarantine and was written by the artist as a dedication to all the people in his life that he loves. The song, which touches upon love and growing old with one’s significant other is a very heartfelt balada and one that gives us a whole new side to Maluma. The lyrics of the song and the overall composition gives us all the feels and reminds us to hug our loved ones a little tighter and tell them that we love them. 

Best Regional Song 

The top nominees in this genre include Christian Nodal with AYAYAY! and Natalia Lafourcade con MI RELIGIÓN. While I am a huge fan of Natalia Lafourcade, Christian Nodal will most likely take the win with this upbeat and modern song. What makes the song work for Nodal is that it is still rooted in the regional genre. 

Best Short Form Music Video

If you haven’t seen J.Balvin’s video for Rojo, please do yourself a favor and watch it now! But be prepared with tissues, this video delivers pain, acceptance, and even a message to its viewers. The video starts with Balvin receiving the news that his daughter was born, as he rushes to the hospital on the phone with his mom, he crashes and dies. But he is not conscious of his death and his spirit makes it to the hospital. The rest of the video shows Balvin following the life of his daughter as she grows up. This video delivers an exceptional story in less than 5 minutes and is a grammy-winning performance. 

To see who will win be sure to tune in! The 21st annual Latin Grammys will air on Univision, Nov. 19, 2020.

Quibi, a short-form streaming platform, offered a variety of content from news shows to comedy to action and more. The streaming service that was launched six months ago, announced that it would be shutting down due to a lack of success in gaining traction with subscribers. It is unknown if the shows on the platform will be renewed on different platforms or canceled.  Here are some Latin shows that were offered on Quibi.

“Thanks A Million”

“Thanks A Million,” executive produced by Jennifer Lopez, first aired on Quibi on April 6, 2020. The show follows celebrities as they kickstart a chain of kindness by gifting money to an individual who must then give half of it to someone else. The first episode features J.Lo herself. Other episodes feature Gabriel Iglesias, Kristen Bell,  Anthony Davis, Kevin Hart, Nick Jonas, and more.

“Flipped”

“Flipped” is an American comedy series that debuted on Quibi, April 6, 2020. The cast includes Latino stars Arturo Castro, Eva Longoria, and Andy Garcia. The show is about a couple who get into the house-flipping business and are kidnapped by drug cartel members and forced to renovate their homes.

“Nikki Fre$h”

Nicole Richie executively produced and starred in “Nikki Fre$h.”  It is a six-episode series on Quibi in which Richie plays her musical persona ““Nikki Fre$h,” a trap artist who makes eco-conscious choices while performing music videos. A couple of the special guests include Bill Nye, the science guy, and Lionel Richie. 

“Pulse News by Telemundo”

Not only does Quibi offer tv shows, but it also offers news. “Pulse News by Telemundo” is a newscast, hosted by Andrea Martinez, that is catered to the English-speaking Latino community. It has aired daily on the streaming platform since the launch of Quibi.

“For the Cultura by Telemundo”

Another Telemundo based news show is “For the Cultura by Telemundo.” It is a Latino-focused entertainment and music news show that is co-hosted by Alfredo Lomeli and Krystal Vega. Like “Pulse News,” the entertainment based news show airs daily.

The American sketch comedy series created by and starring Arturo Castro is not currently on Quibi. It had its first season on Comedy Central and was renewed for a second season and would move to Quibi. The series is described as a “a sketch show based on Arturo’s experiences as a Latino millennial in the United States.” The status of the show is currently unknown due to the shut down of the mobile device streaming platform. 

“Natural Born Narco”

The tv drama is supposed to premiere in fall 2020 as a collaboration between Quibi and Telemundo. The series chronicles the origins of the drug lord Amado Carrillo Fuentes and is inspired by and serves as a prequel to the acclaimed telenovela, El Señor de Los Cielos. The status of the telenovela-like series is unknown due to the shutdown news.

Quibi expects to shut down the streaming service around December 1, 2020.
