The awards are raining for Game of Thrones. At the recently concluded 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards, Game of Thrones struck gold when it won 3 Emmy awards, which included a second Best Drama Series in a row. The showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss also took home a trophy for Best Writing for Drama Series, while Miguel Sapochnik was awarded the Best Directing for Drama Series for directing the amazing Battle of Bastards episode.

Unfortunately, none of the actors managed to win an award. We were really hoping that one of them managed to bring home an Emmy but as of now with these 3 wins, Game of Thrones has broken another Emmy record by taking its tally to 38 awards and while doing that it overtook Frasier as the most awarded scripted show in Emmy history. With these wins, Game of Thrones has won 12 Emmys in total this year, which includes a record 9 Creative Art Emmy Awards last Sunday.

Here’s a photo of the cast of Game of Thrones just after winning the Emmys.

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 actors are amongst the most popular stars on the planet.  Naturally, when they decide to grace the red carpet of any awards show, they steal the limelight. Something similar happened in the recently concluded BAFTA Awards as well where we saw many Game of Thrones actors on the red carpet. Read on!

Whether they win any awards or not, Game of Thrones actors get noticed everywhere. Their presence enriches the awards and gives immense pleasure to their million fans. In the recently concluded 73rd British Academy Film Awards, we saw beautiful Emilia Clarke, Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy) who recently expressed big disappointment about fans’ reactions to the season finale and Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) grace the red carpet and they absolutely rocked it.

Although Game of Thrones wasn’t nominated in any categories in BAFTA awards, it has shown pretty good form at the awards recently. After winning itself two awards at the Global TV Demand Awards, it also managed to win an Atrios award from the Casting Society of America.

Well, We would like to see more of our favorite stars, be it red carpet or anywhere else!  How did you like their look?

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!
