Today is George R.R. Martin's 66th birthday, and he certainly has a lot to celebrate.

He's one of the world's best-selling authors, there's a wildly successful television series based on his work, and he makes life miserable for millions of people on a regular basis.

Yes, if you're one of the 18 million people who watched Game of Thrones last season, you might hate GRRM even though you've never actually read his work.

And we're right there with you. On countless occasions, Martin has ripped our hearts out and cast them aside like Theon Greyjoy's severed wang:

Bran's Winterfell Fall
When a lovable kid gets paralyzed early in the story, you know the guy telling tale isn't gonna spare your feelings.

But like a handlebar mustache on a hipster's lip, our hate is thoroughly ironic.

We hate George because we so deeply love the world that he's created with his A Song of Ice and Fire books that the death of even a minor character can feel like a real-life tragedy.

Bryan Cranston might have hung up his Heisenberg hat, but if there's one thing we know after watching the 2014 Emmy Awards it's that the world can't get enough of Walter White.

Not only did Cranston and his Breaking Bad cohorts rack up an impressive 5 Emmy wins during the telecast, but he also racked up an impressive number of lip locks.

The most infamous of which will forever be that funny moment when Cranston kissed Julia Louis-Dreyfus. What can we say!? The man was excited!

Elsewhere, Sarah Silverman displayed some odd behavior, which is really nothing new for Sarah Silverman, so there's that. Oh, and shade was most definitely thrown.

In the direction of Jessica Lange, of all people. Say what now? Sit back, relax, and click through this gallery of the 2014 Emmy Awards in GIFs to relive the night's best moments:

The 2014 Emmy Awards held last night featured many memorable moments.

As with most award shows, the night started with memorable red carpet fashions.

From there. we had the hilarious Bryan Cranston-Julia Louis Dreyfus make-out session and the awesome color-coordinated banter between Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

But while the stars of the small screen dominated the evening, for many fans the highlight of the night involved two men who have never starred on television shows, and who's names are synonymous with nerd-dom.

Yes, for many of us, Weird Al using the power of song to encourage George R.R. Martin to hurry the hell up with the next Game of Thrones book is like a dream come true. All we can do now is hope GRRM takes Al's advice.

Of course, it wasn't just GoT that received the Yankovic parody treatment:

There were a lot of interesting moments at Comic Con 2014, held this past weekend in San Diego. We're sure for many fans, just the opportunity to get the first glimpse of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman was worth the price of admission.

But while Gadot's hotness reigned supreme at the Batman vs. Superman panel, it was surely Game of Thrones mastermind George R.R. Martin who provided the bulk of this year's highlights. 

First, the George R.R. Martin Khaleesi photo took the Internet by storm and proved and that the man responsible for Theon Greyjoy having his peen lopped off has a sense of humor after all.

Speaking of wangs, it got even better from there. Check out this interview that Martin gave on the red carpet:

Yes, the revered author responsible for one of the most popular literary works of our time thinks it's important that you know he prefers boobies to weenies.

George R.R. Martin is something of a god in the nerd world, so it stands to reason that he's in attendance at at Comic Con 2014, currently being held in San Diego.

Martin clearly has no problem pissing off fans when it comes to things like killing off characters, or taking freakin' forever to wrap up a story, but when a young Game of Thrones devotee approaches him with a hilarious request, GRRM is apparently happy to oblige.

George R.R. Martin Khaleesi Photo

The dude in the foreground is a Reddit user who crossed paths with Martin at the convention and asked him to stick his head through a Daenerys Targaryen cut-out. Judging by the photo the author promptly, and awesomely did so.

Sure, Emilia Clarke might be the hottest woman alive, but we think George makes a pretty convincing Khaleesi. If she ever has to bow out for any reason, we say just have Martin fill the role. No one will even notice.
