Game of Thrones showrunners deny the possibility of a prequel. George R.R. Martin calls it speculation

Game of Thrones kicked some serious ass during the Emmys this year by winning 3 Emmys and breaking records, but the phenomenal show does not stop there. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Game of Thrones is now nominated for several Hollywood Professional Association awards, which have been around since 2006. These awards  honor technical achievements in film, television, and commercials. Turns out Game of Thrones has more nominations than any other TV show.

Here are the categories in which the show is nominated:

Outstanding Editing – Television

“Game of Thrones – Battle of the Bastards”

  • Tim Porter, ACE

Outstanding Sound – Television

Game of Thrones – Battle of the Bastards”

  • Tim Kimmel, MPSE, Paula Fairfield, Mathew Waters, CAS, Onnalee Blank, CAS, Bradley C. Katona, Paul Bercovitch // Formosa Group

Outstanding Visual Effects – Television

“Game of Thrones – Battle of the Bastards”

  • Joe Bauer, Eric Carney // Fire & Blood Productions
    Derek Spears // Rhythm & Hues Studios
    Glenn Melenhorst // Iloura
    Matthew Rouleau // Rodeo FX

Since ‘Battle of the Bastards’ was such a brilliant episode when it comes to all aspects including being the best battle sequence on television, it’s not a surprise that the episode ruled the categories. However, it is great to know that Game of Thrones is continuing to be nominated for various awards.

Game of Thrones gets three nominations for the 2020 SAG Awards

Awards season is back, and Game of Thrones is doing O.K. While we aren’t seeing the show rake in its usual supersized figures of award nominations this year around, it’s still leaving its prints. Today, the nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards a.k.a the SAG Awards were announced, and Game of Thrones bagged three. Read on!

Like we had recently reported, Game of Thrones got one nomination at the Golden Globes, followed by four at the Critics’ Choice Awards. The SAG awards have now given the show three more.

Game of Thrones picked two ensemble nominations, one for the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series category, and the other in the Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series. The third nomination came for Peter Dinklage in the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series category. He has already won an Emmy for his Season 8 performance.

The 26th Annual SAG Awards will be held on January 19. Do you think Game of Thrones can win all three? Talk to us in the comments, below!

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.

Game of Thrones gets 4 nominations at Critics Choice Awards

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.
