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?

Game of Thrones receives six nominations at the 18th Visual Society Effects Awards

Game of Thrones may not have won too many awards this season but has consistently received nominations at various awards. After getting two nominations at the 72nd DGA awards, the show has now received six nominations at the 18th Annual Visual Society Effects awards. Read on to find out more!

Visual Society Effects (VES) awards have been recognizing outstanding visual effects achievement in entertainment for the past 18 years. On January 8, the nominations were announced, and Game of Thrones bagged 6 nominations in a total of 5 categories. Here are the categories in which Game of Thrones has nominations:

Outstanding Visual Effects in a Photoreal Episode

Game of Thrones; “The Bells”

Outstanding Created Environment in an Episode, Commercial, or Real-Time Project

Game of Thrones; The Iron Throne; Red Keep Plaza

Outstanding Effects Simulations in an Episode, Commercial, or Real-Time Project

Although the final season of Game of Thrones didn’t receive as much acclaim as their previous seasons, the quality of visual effects remained intact. Even the most ardent critic of the show will not be able to find the fault in the kind of work that went behind the special effects.

Thrones is going to get some tough competition from Disney’s The Mandalorian and other popular shows like Stranger Things. But we reckon Game of Thrones is going to grab at least some wins.

The VES Awards will be held on January 29 at Beverly Hilton Hotel and will be hosted by award-winning actor, comedian, and writer Patton Oswalt.

Well, what do you guys think about the nominations? Write to us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones actor Jonathan Pryce nominated for Best Actor at 2020 Oscars

Game of Thrones actor Jonathan Pryce nominated for Best Actor at 2020 Oscars

The Game of Thrones cast has had some real gems, and we have seen them shine on, as well as outside of the show. One example of such a great actor is Jonathan Pryce, who has now landed a Best Actor nomination at the The 92nd Academy Awards, a.k.a. The Oscars. Read on!

The Academy today announced the full list of nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards, 2020, and the Best Actor category is looking especially good this year. Take a look:

Best actor in a leading role

Joaquin Phoenix, “Joker”
Adam Driver, “Marriage Story”
Leonardo DiCaprio, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”
Antonio Banderas, “Pain and Glory”
Jonathan Pryce, “The Two Popes”

Game of Thrones actor Jonathan Price nominated for Best Actor at 2020 Oscars

Jonathan Pryce played the role of the cult leader High Sparrow on Game of Thrones. The role gained him a lot of praise, and it was also pointed out that the High Sparrow seemed like a twisted take on the Pope, and that Pryce looked a lot like Pope Francis. Thats’s not all, Pryce even said he drew inspiration from Pope Francis to portray the High Sparrow. The best part is, Pryce played Pope Francis in The Two Popes, and this is the role for which he has now gained an Oscar nomination.

While we would love for Pryce to take this win, especially for the Pope connection, the category seems pretty locked with Joaquin Phoenix set to win, and Adam Driver pulling right behind him. The 2020 Oscars ceremony will be held on February 9th.

What do you guys think? Can Pryce win? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones received two nominations at the 72nd DGA Awards

Game of Thrones has dominated ratings and award shows since it started back in 2011. Despite drawing a divide among the fans with its final season, Game of Thrones had managed a firm swan-song by receiving a record thirty-two nominations at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards; grabbing an Emmy each for Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series through its eighth outing. The show came abuzz yet again when Directors Guild of America (DGA) Award nominations were announced.

Game of Thrones received two nominations at the 72nd DGA Awards

On Friday, DGA announced its TV nominations for Dramatic Series, Comedy Series, and Variety/Talk/News/Sports- Specials. Two of the most popular directors of the HBO hit series have earned nominations for their episodes from the last season of Game of Thrones; Miguel Sapochnik got nominated for “The Long Night” while David Nutter for “The Last of the Starks.”  The two directors have shared five of the last six episodes among them, with Sapochnik directing two and Nutter helming three. However the show-runners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss led the finale episode (The Iron Throne), putting our long burnished surface of ice and fire at rest.

HBO ruled over the other nominations as well, with nominations for shows like Watchmen, Barry, Veep, followed by Amazon Prime Video.

The Guild was earlier set to announce all of its TV nominations together but revealed only its TV Movie/Limited Series; Documentary; Variety/Talk/News/Sports- Regularly Scheduled Programming; Reality Programs; Children’s Programs; and Commercials nominees on Monday. It was due to “a re-vote related to a newly implemented electronic entry submissions process,” DGA explained.

The 72nd Annual DGA Awards will be held on Saturday, January 25, 2020 in Los Angeles. It would be thrilling to see Game of Thrones pull off a chilling high! We’re keeping our fingers crossed. Tell us your expectations in the comments section below.
