Here's the full list of Game of Thrones' Emmy consideration submissions

Game of Thrones is a giant show, and as such, it is no stranger to the big awards. Now, we have seen that the show has absolutely dominated the past few awards seasons, and if you consider the biggest of all the TV awards, the Emmy Awards, you can see that Game of Thrones has won 38 in total, for the first six seasons. Needless to say, the show is set to make its mark on the last two Emmys that remain, with Season 7 going for this year’s honors. Let’s take a look at all the submissions that HBO has put forth to the Emmys, for Game of Thrones. Read on!

Now, as you know, Game of Thrones Season 7 didn’t cut it for the 2017 edition of the Emmy Awards, but it is all set to rock the 70th Annual Emmy Awards, 2018, to be held om September 17.  Let’s take a look at the considerations:

Outstanding Production Design For A Narrative Period Or Fantasy Program (One Hour Or More) – “Dragonstone”

This is Game of Thrones’ hat-trick attempt for the category, and Dragonstone looks like a winner.

Outstanding Casting For A Drama Series – Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones has been nominated for this one every year it has been around, but has only won twice, for Season 5 and 6. New casting barely happened for Season 7, so this one might be a pass.

Outstanding Cinematography For A Single-Camera Series (One Hour) – 
“Dragonstone”
“The Queen’s Justice”
“The Spoils of War”
“Beyond the Wall”

Nominated multiple times, but never won, this year might be the first time Game of Thrones takes this one home.

Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes – “Beyond the Wall”

Outstanding Directing For A Drama Series – 
“The Queen’s Justice”
“The Spoils of War”
“Beyond the Wall”
“The Dragon and the Wolf”

David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik have won in this category before, and this year might be the year for Matt Shakman for “The Spoils of War” or Jeremy Podeswa for  “The Dragon and the Wolf”.

Outstanding Hairstyling For A Single-Camera Series – “The Dragon and the Wolf”

The description for this category reads as below:

Took care of 55 wigs plus 10 back pieces used on main cast in addition to cuts and colours on cast’s own hair. Also produce stunt and picture doubles for most cast as well as keeping continuity over 6 months, working between 3 countries: Northern Ireland, Spain and Iceland. The crowd team works on over 7,000 background artists, all with very distinctive looks; styles requiring wigs and hair pieces.

Outstanding Makeup For A Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic) – “The Dragon and the Wolf”

This category had a description, too:

Sculpting materials used freehand with art work and blood products to create open wounds and bruises. Contact lenses, old age stipple, tooth decay, broken veins and dirty down techniques used to create dead, decayed weathered and wounded effects. Collodion and scar making material for aged scars. Laidon hair, partial and full hair-lace beards and moustaches. Petroleum wax and snow effects used to recreate freezing conditions.

Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup For A Series, Limited Series, Movie Or Special – “The Dragon and the Wolf”

This came with a more detailed description:

Hero Wight: Full head and hands silicone appliances. Dentures, contact lenses, lace hair pieces, facial hair punching. Body pieces glued to leotard with green negative space for VFX removal. Night King and 5 White Walkers: Each consisting of 9 silicone appliances, dentures, contact lenses, lace hair pieces. Approx 35 Wights: Silicone facial appliances. The Hound: Silicone burn makeup. LittleFinger: Silicone throat slash appliance with blood tubing. 2 Giant Wights: Silicone head and hands makeup

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series – Kit Harington

Take a closer look at the costumes and props from 'Beyond the Wall'!

Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series – Emilia Clarke

As we know, this is the first time Game of Thrones has sent considerations for lead categories. Before this, everybody competed in the supporting categories. Maybe they were trying to avoid giving us spoilers about whom this story really was about.

Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series –
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Peter Dinklage

Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series – 
Lena Headey
Sophie Turner
Maisie Williams

We have seen Dinklage win for Season 1 and 5, but we think it might be time Nikolaj got his due.

Outstanding Guest Actress In A Drama Series – Diana Rigg

This looks like a home-run finish. Read the description:

When Olenna lost her son and grandchildren to Cersei Lannister, she lost her family’s future. Now she lives only for revenge. She allies with Daenerys Targaryen to destroy Cersei, but underestimates Cersei’s cunning. Ambushed and dying, Olenna delivers one final blow: Cersei took Olenna’s son, but Olenna took hers first.

Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Drama Series – 
“The Queen’s Justice”
“The Spoils of Wars”
“Beyond the Wall”
“The Dragon and the Wolf”

Game of Thrones has scored wins for Season 5 and 6 in this one, could repeat it again, especially with “The Spoils of War”.

Outstanding Sound Editing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (One Hour) – “The Spoils of War”

Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (One Hour) – “Beyond the Wall”

Best and worst moments from Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 6, “Beyond the Wall”

Outstanding Special Visual Effects – “Beyond the Wall”

Outstanding Stunt Coordination For A Drama Series, Limited Series Or Movie – Game of Thrones

All possible wins, especially the Stunt Coordination. Finally, we have:

Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series – “The Dragon and the Wolf”

David and Dan have won this twice before, and this one could make the third.

Outstanding Drama SeriesGame of Thrones

Yet another chance to take it home for three seasons in a row, and we think it just might.

Game of Thrones stars light up the BAFTA Awards

Game of Thrones actors are amongst the most popular stars on the planet.  Naturally, when they decide to grace the red carpet of any awards show, they steal the limelight. Something similar happened in the recently concluded BAFTA Awards as well where we saw many Game of Thrones actors on the red carpet. Read on!

Whether they win any awards or not, Game of Thrones actors get noticed everywhere. Their presence enriches the awards and gives immense pleasure to their million fans. In the recently concluded 73rd British Academy Film Awards, we saw beautiful Emilia Clarke, Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy) who recently expressed big disappointment about fans’ reactions to the season finale and Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) grace the red carpet and they absolutely rocked it.

Although Game of Thrones wasn’t nominated in any categories in BAFTA awards, it has shown pretty good form at the awards recently. After winning itself two awards at the Global TV Demand Awards, it also managed to win an Atrios award from the Casting Society of America.

Well, We would like to see more of our favorite stars, be it red carpet or anywhere else!  How did you like their look?

Game of Thrones wins an Artios Award from the Casting Society of America

Game of Thrones’ final season has continued its winning run at the awards. After winning the costume and audio awards recently, it has now won an award at Artios Awards from the Casting Society of America. Despite receiving the extreme reactions to the final season, the show has continued making waves at the awards. Read on to find out more!

As per Variety, in the recently concluded 35th Annual Artios Awards, Game of Thrones took home an Artio Award for Casting Excellence in a TV Drama. The Casting Society of America honoured Game of Thrones casting directors Nina Gold, Robert Sterne and Carla Stronge for their excellent casting of the show. All of them took home an award each for their invaluable contribution towards the show.

One thing we all can agree on is the fact that it had one of the greatest ensembles of the cast ever for a TV series. The show consisted of actors of the highest caliber. While somebody like Peter Dinklage has frequently won awards, the likes of Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke have gone on to sign big assignments even after the show. The younger members of the cast, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner too have gone on to become huge stars.

For any other show to pull off such a cast it will have to match the magnitude of Thrones. The star cast that Gold, Sterne, and Stronge managed to get in for the show is unlikely to be matched by another show soon.

Well, how about that? Game of Thrones has continued its award-winning run. Do you think it is going to continue winning awards at Directors Guild Awards and Writers Guild of America Awards scheduled on Saturday? Let us know in the comments below!

Game of Thrones bags two wins at the Global TV Demand Awards

Game of Thrones has won many awards during its entire run of eight seasons. Now despite ending its run last year, it continues to make waves at awards. The show has managed to win big at recently concluded 2nd Global TV Demand Awards. Read on!

As per the Variety report, Game of Thrones managed to win two major awards at Parrot Analytics’ 2nd Global TV Demand Awards. The show has won the awards in Most In-Demand TV Series in the World and Most In-Demand Drama Series categories.

Game of Thrones wins two big awards at Global TV Demand Awards

Before anyone begins to outrage, there are justifiable reasons why the final season of Thrones managed to win big. Parrot Analytics takes into account not only video viewing but viewer engagement across multiple platforms: Social media, peer-to-peer protocols, photo sharing, blogging, and research platforms.

We all can agree that when it comes to dissecting/discussing any show, no other series comes even close to Thrones. The final season was discussed for all year round in 2019 and if we go by the trend, it is not going to stop anytime soon.

Other notable winners at the awards were Stranger Things, The Big Bang Theory, Disney’s The Mandalorian and Peaky Blinders.

Well, there you have it, let us know your reactions in the comments below!
