It doesnt matter whether you’ve raised utter psychopaths, dragons or something in between, Mother’s Day is your day, the good, not-always-perfect, and everything in between – through some of their most notable and complex female characters HBO ever made.
Here they are:
Cersei Lannister from GoT
Daenerys Targaryen from GoT
Hannah Horvath from Girls
Maeve Millay from Westworld
Carmela Soprano from The Sopranos
Molly Carter from Insecure
Of course, Fans of Insecure knew that Molly doesn’t have kids. But, still the greeting inside makes sense
“Your job is your baby, and that’s something to be proud of on this day, too.”Molly (Insecure)
The moms on HBO feel true and authentic because they’re far from perfect. Each one is unique in her own way, with interests and quirks that go far beyond the boilerplate chocolates and flowers. It felt fun—and right—to honor these iconic characters (and women like them) on Mother’s Day, when a lot of things seem to celebrate a “perfect” image of motherhood.
Our hope is that people will recognize their own mothers (and mothers in their lives) in these cards, as perfectly-imperfect women and as fans of HBO.
