The Emmys haven’t been kind to Game of Thrones this year, but the show still received some nominations. The cast received a total of ten acting nominations. Only a couple of them were snubbed, though: Dinklage, who was nominated for three acting categories, won one of those. Headey, who was nominated for three, was not.
Despite its numerous nominations, Game of Thrones was snubbed in the most notable categories. Its most infamous snub was for writing. While Game of Thrones may not have won the award for writing, its cast earned the award for supporting actors. In addition, the show’s writers received some harsh criticism for their writing. This could be the reason why the show didn’t land the Best Drama prize.
The cast of Game of Thrones took questions from reporters following the show’s Emmys performance. There was a conspiracy theory that Game of Thrones’ actors secretly hated the show’s finale, but the Emmys have yet to confirm this. Regardless of the reason, fans still want the show to get Emmys and Globes nominations for Headey, Dinklage, and even Turner.
In the drama category, Jonathan Pryce was nominated for his role as the High Sparrow. The role of High Sparrow was one of the most fascinating roles in television history. The character was a true believer who possesses enormous power despite his age. Despite his frail appearance, Jonathan Pryce made it work. The actors behind the show deserve credit for their performance.
Although Game of Thrones did not make it into the lead actor category, the cast of “Veep” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” were notably absent from the list. Despite these notable absences, the show did earn a number of nominations. The awards ceremony will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sept. 12th, and the show has been nominated for 22 categories in all.
Although the show’s first season went largely unnoticed by the TV Academy, it was a complete different story for the second season. The public finally took notice of the period drama, and its actors – including Isaiah Washington as the King of Winterfell – dominated the field. In addition, Nicholas Hoult, who played Peter III, received an award for his role as Catherine the Great.
Jessica Chastain, who won an Oscar this year, received no nominations for “The Offer” and “The Season 2 finale of Game of Thrones.” Her performance in DMZ, a drama-comedy, deserved a nomination, but Emmy voters seemed to steer clear of her. On the other hand, Oscar Isaac and the cast of the HBO Max miniseries did manage to land several nominations.
Stranger Things season four has brought Back to Life with its latest season. Starring Sadie Sink as the intrepid young hero Max, and Joseph Quinn as the lovable metalhead Eddie Munson, this show has brought ’80s pop culture to our attention. And if it was not enough, the cast of Stranger Things has also been making waves by bringing classic songs from the ’80s back to the forefront.
