It is time to list the honours Game of Thrones obtained in the past week. The award season really is in full swing, by now all the nominations for January and February awards have clocked in, and the list is long! Here are the newest additions:
- First off, at IGN.com people had the chance to vote on their own favourites of 2011. Game of Thrones won as Best new show and Best show overall, while Ned Stark was crowned Best hero, and the ending of Baelor was lauded as Best twist.
- The American Cinema Editors society nominated Thrones as the best edited one-hour cable series, based on the work by Frances Parker on the episode Baelor. The competition in the form of the Boarwalk Empire finale and the pilot of Homeland is strong. The ceremony is going to take place on February 18.
- The Cinema Audio Society nominated GoT for the sound mixing award for TV series (Baelor, Ronan Hill and Mark Taylor). Ceremony on Feb 18 as well.
- The Motion Pictures Sound Editors’ Golden Reel Awards brought Thrones two nominations. Best short form dialogue editing on TV (for Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things) and Best short form sound effects editing on TV (for Winter is Coming). The ceremony is to take place on February 19.
- Last but not least, the Costume Designers Guild nominated Michele Clapton‘s work on Thrones as Outstanding costume design on a period/fantasy TV series. The competition includes, among others, Boardwalk Empire and The Borgias. The winners will be announced on February 21.
- Unfortunately, Game of Thrones did not win the Producers Guild Award for episodic TV drama, which went to its sister HBO show Boardwalk Empire yesterday.
Congratulations to all the honourees!
