The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones won big at the second annual Parrot Analytics Global TV Demand Awards, which honor series in high demand throughout the year. The awards ceremony took place on January 21 at the National Association of Television Program Executives conference in Miami, Florida, reports Variety.

Thrones took home the gold in the two categories where it was nominated, starting with Most In-Demand TV Series in the World. When measuring “demand,” Parrot looks at a variety of factors. Viewership is a part of it, of course, but also viewer engagement as measured by “social media, peer-to-peer protocols, photo sharing, blogging, and research platforms.” Basically, the more people are talking about it, the more in demand it is, and whatever your feelings about the final season, it’s hard to deny how much people were talking about Game of Thrones in 2019. There’s even a graph to that effect, and graphs never lie:

Game of Thrones also took the gold for Most In-Demand Drama Series. Jon Snow broodingly approves.

The Mandalorian from Disney+ rightfully took home the Most In-Demand Debut of 2019. This is the way, y’all.

Stranger Things season 3 took home the Most In-Demand Digital Original in the World.

An in non-genre news, Friends creator David Crane accepted a special award in honor of how much that show is still watched and talked about by people over 15 years after it ended. It nearly beat The Big Bang Theory last year in terms of demand!

Awards season marches on. The Art Directors Guild Awards and Writers Guild of America Awards both take place on Saturday, February 1, and the British Academy of Film & Television Arts Awards follow on Sunday, February 2. Plenty of time for Game of Thrones to win more awards!
