Me, too! He's the best thing about GOT (then again, he's nearly always the best thing in anything he's in).

EDIT: Just watched his acceptance speech on Youtube. I had no idea he wasn't British (or at least that he normally speaks with an American accent).

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
