SPIKE TV (branded as “The Man’s Alternative to Lifetime Television” when it first debuted back in 2003) held it’s annual “Scream Awards” Saturday night in Los Angeles, and ‘Thrones took home the big TV prize. Sean Bean and Lena Headey were on hand to accept the award for Best TV Show, which was (coincidently?) presented by Ron Perlman.
Peter Dinklage also won Best Supporting Actor, and Emilia Clarke won for Breakout Female Performance, but neither could make it to the awards ceremony this year. (Something about being busy filming a television series or some such.)
GoT was nominated in four other categories, including Best Actor (Sean Bean), Best Actress (Lena Heady), Best Ensemble, and Most Memorable Mutilation (Viserys’ crown of gold), but did not win. Game of Thrones was also nominated for “The Ultimate Scream” (the Scream Awards top prize) but lost to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
SPIKE TV is a division of MTV Networks.
Fire And Blood: Great to see Sean on hand getting a little well-deserved recognition. You can tell he’s definitely proud of his role. Lena looks smokin’ in black. It’s too bad Westerosi culture doesn’t push black as its mourning color. I’m a little bummed Viserys’ golden crown lost out to something from Piranha 3D. That better have been one epic decapitation-by-motorboat!
