Game of Thrones had a great run with Season 6, with the storyline developing like never before. The season was the best one yet, naturally, as every next season of Game of Thrones always seems to be better than the last one. Being well received by fans and critics alike, Season 6, has been doing really well at the awards season this year, having been nominated for most of the major awards, and winning quite a few of them. The latest win for the show comes from the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards.
As we had previously reported, the show had been nominated for three Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards. The first category it was nominated for was Best Special Makeup Effects for a Television and New Media Series, and it lost in that category to it’s newborn HBO sibling, Westworld.
The show, however, won in the other two categories it was nominated in. The first category was Television and New Media Series: Best Period and/or Character Makeup. The full list of nominees was as below :
