Wonder Woman! Dad! Game of Thrones Stars Choose Their Hand of the King

Wonder Woman, Peter Dinklage

Even if you don't end up murdered like Ned Stark or Jon Arryn before him, acting as the Hand of the King is a thankless job.

As Game of Thrones approaches its Season 2 finale Sunday (9/8c, HBO), the cast of the period-fantasy series weighs in on arguably the most powerful job in the Seven Kingdoms: The Hand of the King (or Queen, as it were). The Hand acts as chief advisor, executes the ruler's commands, is in charge of the army, drafts laws, dispenses justices, handles the day-to-day running of the kingdom, sits on the small council and even sits upon the Iron Throne to act on the king's behalf when he is indisposed (or hunting wild boar).

Nigel Lythgoe: Betty White Got Cheeky with Me at the Britannia Awards

Nigel Lythgoe

For the first time ever, the Britannia Awards will be broadcast in the United States, on TV Guide Network, and BAFTA Los Angeles Chairman Nigel Lythgoe says viewers are in for a night of off-the-cuff comedy.

Hosted by British comedian Stephen Fry, the ceremony honors those who have made an outstanding contribution to the entertainment industry in the U.S. and Great Britain. Because the honorees already know they're getting an award, the atmosphere is much more relaxed, Lythgoe says.

The So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol executive producer says it's so comfortable, Betty White even made a pass at him at this year's event. 

TVGuide.com: This is the first time the Britannia Awards have aired in the United States. As chairman, are you proud to be able to share this with America?
Nigel Lythgoe:
