2018 Emmys: George R. R. Martin says Game of Thrones could've lasted 13 seasons

During the Emmys we got to see a number of Game Of Thrones stars on the Emmys Red Carpet and they were joined by George R. R. Martin who revealed that he wanted the show to last for more than 8 seasons and it was the showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss who made sure that the show didn’t go past 8 seasons.

We are sure that the showrunners are going to receive lot of angry reactions tonight as the fans don’t want the show to end and now we know that even George R. R. Martin feels the same. Speaking with Variety, Martin was asked why the show was ending and he replied, “I don’t know, ask David and Dan when they come through. We could have gone to 11, 12, 13 seasons. But I guess they wanted a life.” Take a look at the video below.

Martin further added, “If you’ve read my novels, you know there was enough material for more seasons. David and Dan have been saying for five years that seven seasons was all they would go. We got them to go to eight but not any more than that,” Martin said. “There was a period five years ago where they were saying seven seasons and I was saying 10, and they won.

However, fans don’t need to worry as we will still get to see Westeros even after Game Of Thrones ends. George also spoke about the prequels. “We have five prequels in development that are based on other periods of Westeros. Some of them just 100 years before Game of Thrones, some of them 5000 years before Game of Thrones.

What do you think about George R. R. Martin’s comments and do you agree with the decision taken by the showrunners to end the show after the 8th season? Let us know in the comments section below.

Game Of Thrones wins the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series

Game Of Thrones has done it once again! The HBO show has continued its great run at the Emmys by winning the Emmy award for Outstanding Drama Series and proving that it’s the King of all series! This is the third time the show is winning the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series.

Game Of Thrones last won the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series in 2015 and 2016. The show would’ve won it for the third time in a row but that wasn’t possible as Game Of Thrones wasn’t eligible for 2017 Emmys.

Writing for these actors is the honour of a lifetime but we didn’t invent these characters, that is George R.R. Martin, the show could not be without the mad genius of George. Thank you for letting us take care of your people,” said David Benioff while accepting the award.

D.B. Weiss further added, “A show is only as good as the people who make it and we’re blessed and lucky to have the greatest cast, the greatest crew and the greatest team of producers led by Bernie Caulfield. It’s a honour to work with them from Spain, to Iceland, all the way to our home base of Belfast, Northern Ireland. Here’s to you, Belfast.

The show had some really stiff competition with The Crown, Stranger Things, The Americans, This Is Us, Westworld and The Handmaid’s Tale fighting it out with Game Of Thrones for winning the award. Game Of Thrones was the most nominated show at this Emmys with 22 nominations and it managed to win two major awards: Outstanding Supporting Actor in Drama Series for Peter Dinklage and Outstanding Drama Series.

These wins take Game Of Thrones’ tally to 9 Emmy awards in 2018, taking into consideration the 7 Creative Arts Emmys that the show won last week. Let us know your thoughts about this major win for the show and do you think the show deserved to win more Emmys tonight?

Peter Dinklage wins the "Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series"

It’s time to celebrate as Peter Dinklage has won another Emmy award for playing the role of Tyrion Lannister on Game Of Thrones! Peter Dinklage had already created an Emmy record by becoming the most nominated actor in the category and now he has gone ahead and won the award for the third time!

Game Of Thrones stars hit the 2018 Emmys Red Carpet in style!

Peter Dinklage has won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2011 and 2015. He has managed to receive a nomination for all 7 seasons of the show, which is a great feat and it just shows what an amazing actor he is and I am overjoyed to see him winning the award once again.

He had competition from his Game Of Thrones co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who was nominated for the first time. The third Lannister sibling, Lena Headey who plays Cersei was also nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category but she didn’t manage to win the award.

We will keep you updated with the latest news from the Emmys. Let us know your thoughts about Peter Dinklage winning the Emmy award.
