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

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.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

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.

The feature filmed memorable moments from the Nancy Meyers film and its 1995 sequel Father of the Bride II and showed “the Banks family’s” home in 2020. The reunion was produced to honor the World Central Kitchen amid the pandemic.

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.
