Game of Thrones is the most awarded show in television history. The show set a record for winning the highest number of Primetime Emmy Awards for a series in a single year in 2015, winning 12 out of 24 nominations. To date, no other show has come close to that record. The hopes are high with the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon, and with high expectations comes comparison with similar shows that are slated to release at the same time.

House of The Dragon’s biggest competitor is Amazon’s The Lord of The Rings series: The Rings of Power. Though Amazon failed to make the mark with The Wheel of Time, which was said to be rivaling the likes of Game of Thrones, the streaming network is leaving no stones unturned with The Rings of Power. The Lord of The Rings prequel is said to be the most expensive TV show to have been ever made, and that alone for season 1. Talking about the intense rivalry between the two fantasy franchises, Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin told Independent at the inaugural Santa Fe Literary Festival:

“I know a lot of articles, the minute the dates were announced, it’s: ‘Oh, the battle for fantasy supremacy. It’s Rings of Power versus House of Dragon, who will win?’ I don’t know why they always have to do that. I hope both shows succeed. I’m competitive enough. I hope we succeed more. If they win six Emmys, and I hope they do, I hope we win seven. But nonetheless, it’s good for fantasy. I love fantasy. I love science fiction. I want more shows on television.”
