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 prequel House of The Dragon, with the series off to a great start, winning a Golden Globe Award for the Best Drama series. And George R. R. Martin was not expecting that at all.

In a recent post on his blog Not A Blog, Martin wrote:

“It was, of course, an honor just to be nominated, but I never expected that we would win. After all, GAME OF THRONES had been nominated five times, and had never actually taken home a Globe (Peter Dinklage did win one, as Best Supporting Actor, but never the show itself). I was in attendance at the Beverly Hilton for several of those nights, but I did not fly out to LA this time, because… well, I have a lot to do, I am way behind with much of it, and anyway, no one expected us to win.”

“We faced some very formidable competition. THE CROWN had won twice before, so we knew how much the Hollywood Foreign Press loved that show. BETTER CALL SAUL and OZARK were both up for their final seasons, and usually a show that is bowing out gets a boost from that. Last chance, and all. And SEVERANCE was also in the category, one of the hottest new shows of the past year. Against that field, I figured we were the longest of long shots.”
