Time really flies, I remember the first show nominations as if it was yesterday, but it has apparently been a year. Nominations for two awards have been announced, and Game of Thrones made the lists once more.
First, the Critics’ Choice Television Awards where Thrones is nominated for Best drama series and Peter Dinklage for best supporting actor are taking place on June 18. Compared to last year, GoT scored an additional nomination with Dinklage this time around. No win last year.
Second, Television Critics Association Awards take place on July 28. Three nominations for Game of Thrones (Outstanding drama, Program of the year, and Individual achievement award for Dinklage). Last year, the show won in the Outstanding new program category, where it is of course not eligible this year.
Keep in mind, though, that there are still a few awards where season one is among the contenders. There are two in June, Monte Carlo Television Festival (Best drama series nomination, Best actor – Peter Dinklage and Kit Harington, Best actress – Lena Headey and Emilia Clarke) on the 14th and Saturn Awards on the 20th (four nominations: Best short TV series, Sean Bean and Lena Headey as leads, Kit Harington supporting). At the end of August, Hugo Awards will be dished out, and GoT is in the race for Best long form dramatic presentation.
