Game of Thrones had a great run with Season 6, with critics and fans liking it alike. That is why it has been doing so well these awards season, garnering nominations for every award show considering the genre the show is in, and winning quite a lot of them, too. The latest ones are coming straight from the Visual Effects Society (VES) Awards, which honor the best in visual effects, as you might have guessed, which Game of Thrones absolutely dominated.
