Game of Thrones Receives a Baker’s Dozen

July 14, 2011

Game of Thrones has snagged 13 Emmy nominations. I don’t know weather to be surprised or not. I know it’s a great show but the award shows tend to shy away from nominating genre fiction. That’s why Battlestar Galactica never won anything. Maybe they learned their lesson? I have a strong feeling that Game of Thrones will win Best Drama mainly because Mad Men has won for the last three years in a row and they won’t be back until next year. Out of sight, out of mind.

And the nominations are:

• Best Drama Series: Game of Thrones
• Supporting Actor in a Drama Series: Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister
• Writing in a Drama Series: David Benioff and Dan Weiss for “Baelor”
• Direction in a Single-Camera Series: Timothy van Patten for “Winter is Coming”
• Casting in a Drama Series: Nina Gold and Robert Sterne
• Costumes for a Drama Series: Michelle Clapton and Rachael Webb-Crozier for “The Pointy End”
• Hairstyling in a Single-Camera Series: Kevin Alexander and Candice Banks for “A Golden Crown”
• Main Title Design: Angus Wall, Robert Feng, Kirk H. Shintani, and Hameed Shaukat
• Non-prosthetic Makeup in a Single-Camera Series: Paul Engelen and Melissa Lackersteen for “Winter is Coming”
• Prosethtic Makeup in a Series: Paul Engelen and Conor O’Sullivan for “A Golden Crown”
• Sound Editing for a Series: Stefan Hendrix, Tim Hands, Michelle McCormack, Steve Fanagan, Andy Kennedy, Jon Stevenson, Robin Whittaker, Caoimhe Doyle, and Eoghan McDonnell
• Special Visual effects for a Series: Adam McInnes, Angela Barson, Lucy Ainsworth-Taylor, Raf Morant, Henry Badgett, Damien Mace, Stuart Brisdon, and Graham Hills
• Stunt Coordination: Paul Jennings
