Game of Thrones gets 4 nominations at Critics Choice Awards

The nominations for the 25th annual Critics’ Choice Awards 2020 are out. The awards are going to be held on 12 January 2020. Game of Thrones fans and makers probably heaved a sigh of relief after getting nominated in four different categories by Critics’ Choice Awards.

The Critics Choice Awards nominated the HBO show for Best Drama Series, Best Actor in a Drama Series – Kit Harington, Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series – Peter Dinklage and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series – Gwendoline Christie.

The show was recently snubbed by The Golden Globes Awards as they received only one mention in the list of nominations. Kit Harington aka Jon Snow was the only member of the cast who got nominated for Best Actor in a TV Series – Drama.

Over the years, Game of Thrones has been bestowed upon by many awards and many nominations. In fact, the show in its entire run got more than 750 nominations and more than 250 wins. Emmy Awards alone have been the witness to 59 wins out of the total 160 nominations for the show.

Earlier this year, Game of Thrones won 12 Emmy Awards and matched their own record of the most wins in a year. Peter Dinklage who has been nominated by Critics Choice Awards, has already created a record of winning the Emmy Award for four times in a row.

What makes these nominations even more special this year is the fact that show has now ended its run and these awards are only going to enhance its legacy. While the final season may have got some of the most extreme reactions ever for a television show, it has still managed to get few awards in its kitty.

For all those associated with the show, these nominations must have been very fulfilling as all of them have gone on record about their emotional journey with the show. HBO may have already green lighted a few prequels to the series but when it comes to acclaims it is not going to be easy to match the thrones.

Game of Thrones actor Liam Cunningham who played the character of Davos Seaworth in the show has won the inaugural Human Rights Award. It was an important win for the actor and something which he is going to cherish for a long time. Read on.

As per Nova, Cunningham was recently bestowed upon by the award by Syrian refugee Husam Alhraki for his campaigning work on the rights of migrants and refugees. On receiving the award Cunningham felt honored and asked Europe to do more for the refugees. He said:

“It’s an honor for me to receive this award from the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, who have been working to make Ireland a freer and better country for almost half a century.
And it comes at a really important moment when Europe is literally allowing refugees to die on our borders. We need to stand up against this, to assert that Europe and Ireland we want to live in are places that offer refuge to people who need our help.”

In another interview recently, he was particularly vocal against the governments for not doing enough for this crisis. He said:

“It’s an ugly, filthy look on our government not to take care of business … we’re not doing as much as we should be doing and as much as we said we would. It’s terrible.”

Cunningham has emerged as a champion of human rights in Ireland and it is so good to see an actor stand up for a real cause.

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!
