Golden Globes snubbed Game of Thrones this year. Boo. The Newsroom somehow snatched one of the 5 best drama slots. To remind you, last year Dinklage was nominated for supporting actor and won it, and the show was nominated for best drama.
American Film Institute selected Game of Thrones as one of the 10 best TV programs of the year.
Over at IGN, they are selecting the best of 2012, and GoT has garnered 5 nominations: Best series overall, Best drama series, Best episode (Blackwater), Best villain (Joffrey), Best DVD or BluRay set (first season).
In other news, the GoT stunt ensemble was nominated for the 19th Screen Actors Guild Awards, which will take place at the end of January. The Writers Guild Awards also honoured Thrones by nominating it for best drama series.
