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.

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.

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!
