Game of Thrones is no stranger to being nominated for Best Drama at the Golden Globes.
First picking up a nod in the category in 2012, the HBO drama has been shortlisted a total of four times for the award. However, it has never actually won the coveted gong.
And now, GoT supremo George R R Martin reckons the global hit is going to miss out on the award. Again.
Writing on his website NotABlog, the author has tipped fellow HBO drama Westworld for the award and thinks it’s the favourite ahead of the winner being announced in January.
Martin congratulated the cast and crew of Thrones for their nomination for the “big prize”, and said: “Being an HBO guy, I’m thrilled that to see that both Game of Thrones and Westworld have been nominated for the big prize, though Westworld is going to be some tough competition. (In fact, I would figure WW for the favourite).
“And as a science fiction and fantasy geek, I am also delighted to see that Stranger Things made the list,” he added. “Three out of five finalists being genre shows… and during this golden age of television… is another sign of just how far we’ve come.”
Too true George. And, even in Thrones doesn’t win, there’s always 2018…
