Game of Thrones Season 5 on Blu-ray or DVD
The fifth season of the acclaimed HBO drama Game of Thrones follows favorite characters as they wrestle with the increasingly dire situations that come to often violent conclusions.
Jon Snow grapples with balancing the demands of the Night’s Watch with those of Stannis Baratheon. Meanwhile, Cersei strives to maintain power in King’s Landing, fighting off the Tyrells and influential religious group, the High Sparrow. Her twin brother, Jaime, disappears on a secret mission, while Arya Stark searches for an old friend. And the Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys, makes hard sacrifices to keep her grip on the city of Meereen.
Follow the Books
The fifth season draws most of its material from A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons, the fourth and fifth novels in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire. But season five also introduces its own unique material, as well as borrowing bits from the novel series’ third and sixth books.
Setting a record for Emmy wins, the fifth season garnered 12 out of 24 nominations, including Outstanding Drama, Directing, and Writing. Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) snagged the statue for Outstanding Supporting Actor, while both Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Lena Headley (Cersei Lannister) were given Supporting Actress nods.
