Game of Thrones (specifially The Ghost of Harrenhal)won the award for Best Production Design in a single-camera TV series at the 17th Art Directors Guild Awards. Congratulations to Gemma Jackson heading the team!
At the 11th Visual Effects Society Awards GoT swept the floor, winning every category they were nominated in: Best Visual Effects for TV, Best Animated Character (dragons), Best Created Environment (Pyke on the Iron Islands), and Best Compositing for TV (White Walker army). Well done indeed, the show is nothing if not visually stunning, and the seamless effects are a big part of that.
The 60th MPSE Golden Reel Awards for sound editing saw two laurels given to our favourite show: Best Long Form Television Dialogue Editing & Long Form Television Sound Effects Editing (both for Valar Morghulis). In addition, GoT was nominated in three Short Form TV categories as well: best music, dialogue, and sound effects editing (all for Blackwater).
There was less success at the Irish Film & Television Awards, the Cinema Audio Society Awards, the Writers Guild Awards, and the Costume Designers Guild Awards, where Thrones was also nominated, but not bestowed with any honours in the end.
The 39th Saturn Awards are coming sometime in June, and there Game of Thrones is nominated for Best Television Presentation this year. Fingers crossed!
