House of the Dragon critics choice awards nomination

Game of Thrones had its own cradle of controversies, and a lot of them stirred extreme hatred among a lot of fans towards the show. Its successor show, House of The Dragon, the prequel that goes back into the history of the Targaryen dynasty, has its own share of controversies, though not as extreme as the Game of Thrones season 8 finale. The treatment of women in both of these shows has always been up for debate. However, for showrunner Ryan Condal, House of The Dragon embodies a true feminist story.

Condal recently told Variety in an interview, “This story was always a female-centric one, so it was important to me to have multiple female voices on the creative team. Like any great actor, a great writer should be able to put themselves in the shoes of any character and tell their story, but every artist is limited by their own experience — myself included. ”

“I know I don’t have all the answers, and I knew that my writing would be improved by the presence of great female storytellers so that we could shape ‘House of the Dragon’ together. I’m incredibly proud of the result: What this team has built together has resonated with audiences and has done so in a way that is complex and nuanced. It is a true feminist story that explores the strengths and shortcomings — warts and all — of the two women at the center of it.”
