S2 wins a Hugo, S3 an SFX award
By Hear Me Roar on in Awards.

The first season of GoT as a whole won a Hugo Award last year, while Season Two received more nomination votes for one individual episode – Blackwater, naturally – and was eligible in the Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form category. Sure as fate, the best constructed and most spectacular episode of Thrones so far won it, despite running against three Doctor Who episodes and a Fringe one. Rory McCann and GRRM were there.

Last week, another award came in. At the SFX Awards, Emilia Clarke won for Best Actress in S3, the SFX Magazine announced in its printed edition (thanks to @Werthead for pointing it out to us). Surely, they will put the information on their website shortly as well.

    You should probably mention that George R.R. Martin himself specifically won that Hugo Award, as he was the writer on Blackwater.

    Emilia Clarke won for Best Actress in S3

    wow
    she didn’t deserve that
    actually, she didn’t deserve a single award they give her

    Before anyone bites, let me ask that everyone who comments disregard the baiting of this false trickster god.

    SFX awards are fan-voted, you’ll have to take that one up with the fanbase.

    Well, Michelle and Nicolaj aren’t earning the respect they deserve but that doesn’t mean this is bad news. Emilia was awesome this season! Also, Loki is a troll most of the time, it’s wise to avoid him/her.

    It’s a reference to these awards being completely meaningless.

    It’s worth noting that Dr. Who almost always wins the short form Hugo (the episode level award, as opposed to the season long award that GoT won in year 1). To take the Hugo away from Dr. Who is a big accomplishment.

    Yes, a worthwhile mention that shouldn’t be downplayed by GoT ‘s general accolades.
    Big props to Martin, for his fine work all around.

    Hark the herald cries ! We fan folk are duly warned at the trickster’s attempt at
    sorcery. Loki is no doubt one of lady Olenna’s minions .

    No disrespect to GoT fans, but I’m wee bit torn on this one.

    Hugos are not known for their opinions on “presentation” no matter how long or short it may be. It sounds to me based on the presentation nominations like the Worldcon members have to get their noses out of British broadcast stations if they want to judge presentation at the international level.

    “Blackwater, naturally”… scoff, scoff.

    In other news, Continuum season 1…

    Putting aside trolls or what have you, I will agree with Loki and that’s not diminishing for Emilia (who I believe is doing great with what she’s given). The problem begins when you have outstanding performances from both men and women who may (or may not) have less screen time than Emilia but they are far better in acting and every one can see that. And then the award goes to the closer-to-protagonist actress.
    It’s kind of baffling for good reasons but I’ll leave it there because I don’t wanna think about the tits factor.

    The situation clears a little when you think about what a Hugo awards stand for. If it’s a fun based award (if I recall correctly, everyone who’s invited can vote) then it makes sense that it is biased …and it’s about love. So most of the people (of the Hugo organization) love Daneyrys. That’s not much of a surprise.
    Also it practically means nothing beyond the fact that somebody would take a silver rocket home as a prize from a voting among friends.
    It’s OK I guess.

    congrats Emilia, Daenerys is very popular so the award is very well deserved and Emilia also improved from season to season. i like her as Dany very much.
