The Hugo Awards ceremony was held last night at this year’s Worldcon in Chicago and Game of Thrones took home a statue! The Hugos are a prestigious set of awards given annually for the best science fiction or fantasy works and achievements of the previous year. This was the first year that Game of Thrones was eligible. It was nominated in the category Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form, alongside the films Captain America, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Hugo and Source Code. Ron Donachie and George R. R. Martin were on hand to accept the award, on behalf of HBO. Video provided by Tower of the Hand.
Winter Is Coming: Congrats to the cast and crew for another well-deserved award! Looking forward to the Emmys, where hopefully more recognition will be forthcoming.
