‘Game of Thrones’ Leads 2019 Emmy Nominations


Game of Thrones is rightfully getting a ton of award recognition for its eighth and final season, as they lead the 2019 Emmy Awards with a record-setting 32 nominations.

 

Headlined by Kit Harington’s nomination for “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series” for his portrayal of Jon Snow, Emilia Clarke’s nomination for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series” for her portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen, and the show’s nomination for “Outstanding Drama Series”, the epic HBO drama is getting its due despite some vocal unhappy viewers that didn’t have their theories come true during the final season.

 

In addition to the nominations for Harington and Clarke, many of the other cast members have received nominations for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series” (Pete Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, and Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy) and “Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series” (Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, Maisie Williams as Arya Stark, Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, and Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth), while Carice van Houten earned a nomination for “Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series” for her return as Melisandre in “The Long Night”.

 

Dinklage, who has been nominated for all eight seasons of the show, has won three Emmys during his time as Tyrion, but none of the other Game of Thrones cast has won an individual Emmy, which obviously isn’t indicative of the remarkable acting in the series from start to finish.

 

In addition to the entire final season being nominated, the series finale “The Iron Throne” (written and directed by showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss) received a nomination for “Outstanding Writing For a Drama Series”.

 

Game of Thrones has won “Outstanding Drama Series” for its previous three seasons, and it has been nominated for all eight seasons. The show is already the most awarded scripted series in Emmy history.

 

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards will air on Sunday, September 22 at 8:00 PM ET on FOX.

Imagine how many they’d win if the show went 10-13 seasons.
