Will Homeland again take home the Emmy, or is it time for Game of Thrones to claim the crown?
And which sitcom will get the last laugh?
Some of the answers were revealed early Thursday morning, with the announcement of the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards, by Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul and last-minute announcer (and ubiquitous TV host) Neil Patrick Harris.
Leading the race for network, cable, on-demand and, now, the Internet's highest honor: American Horror Story: Asylum received the most nods, 17, followed by 16 for Game of Thrones, 15 for Behind the Candelabra and Saturday Night Live, 13 for Breaking Bad and 30 Rock, and 12 for Downton Abbey, Mad Men and Modern Family.
In the top categories, the nominees are:

The Internet said "Hola, Hovito" this week, when Jay-Z popped on Twitter for an impromptu question-and-answer session with fans. And while Jigga was shooting off 140 characters of wisdom, Justin Bieber was ruining a janitor's day, Game of Thrones actor Jack Gleeson proved that he really isn't anything like his insufferable, face-punchable character Joffrey and even more happened online.
Read on to see what the Internet had to offer this week.

First, let me thank readers of the George R.R. Martin novels that serve as the source for HBO's Game of Thrones, which concluded its third and (so far) best season Sunday night.
Thank you for keeping your traps shut.
If you had suffered from spoiler's pride, you would have gone around boasting loudly about your foreknowledge of the calamity that struck in last week's penultimate episode, "The Rains of Castamere," more popularly known now simply as "Red Wedding."

If Game of Thrones' Red Wedding episode is any indication of what's to come on Sunday's season 3 finale, a drink may be in order.
The mixologists at Grey Goose came up with the perfect libation to entertain guests at a viewing party – or dull the pain of another season ending.
"As a fan of the show, I was inspired by the strength and beauty of Emilia Clarke's character Daenerys Targaryen and her striking white hair," Grey Goose brand ambassador, Guillaume Jubien, tells PEOPLE. "The cocktail needed to contain delicate flavors yet maintain character. A cocktail like this really takes your party to the next level."
Plus, who doesn't love her dragons?

While Game of Thrones viewers struggle to comprehend the events of Sunday's penultimate episode of season 3, Maisie Williams, who portrays Arya Stark on the HBO show, weighed in Monday evening with a Vine detailing her own response to – Stop reading now if you haven't seen it! – the shocking deaths of her onscreen mother and brother, Catelyn and Robb Stark, who are murdered in an event dubbed the "Red Wedding."
Cheekily recapping the reaction of most of the show's viewers, the 15-year-old stares open-mouthed, before repeating over and over the fates of the Stark family.

Peter Dinklage may not be a typical Hollywood star. But he certainly faces the thrills and challenges of being a huge celebrity – as evidenced by his being mobbed by admirers.
"Game of Thrones fans are the nicest people ever, but a thousand nice people coming at me gives me claustrophobia," the actor, who plays Tyrion Lannister on HBO's hit fantasy series, tells Playboy in a new interview.
"I can't wear a pair of sunglasses and pull my hat down and just disappear. I'm 4½ feet tall, so I sort of stand out."

HBO's Game of Thrones, now at the start of its third season, seems to have been weighted into a catapult and sent soaring through the air: What was already a massive hit has become a buzzed-about, addictive phenomenon.
The show is – as one says, of such epic productions – teeming with characters. It swarms with plots, subplots and side-plots. If you missed the first two seasons, you might be afraid to just jump in. Don't be.
Just remember that everyone's motive is essentially the same: Win the Iron Throne and control all the kingdoms. (Think of Jerry Seinfeld chasing down the marble rye, but there are hundred of Jerrys and only one loaf.)
Oh, and everyone wants to avoid being brutally slaughtered.
You'll be hooked fast enough, and you'll develop your own set of obsessions to anticipate each week. These are mine:

Listen up, ladies – to get Game of Thrones heartthrob Kit Harington's attention or maybe even his phone number, you'll need to have a joke or two handy.
"The main thing that I look for in a woman is humor," Harington, 26, told PEOPLE at the opening of the Game of Thrones exhibition in New York.
"She could be the most good looking, famous, wealthy and intelligent person, but if she can't laugh and doesn't have a sense of humor, I'm afraid she's not the one for me."

Though she portrays fan favorite Arya Stark, actress Maisie Williams admits there are drawbacks to the role.
"I am a tomboy, but maybe not as far as Arya," Williams told PEOPLE at the opening of a Game of Thrones exhibit sponsored by HBO and Time Warner Cable in New York City.
"She likes to play in the mud and stuff, which I do like to do, but I quite like to get it clean as soon as possible."
