The Game of Thrones television series came to a spectacular end after being the top show for eight long years. Although it was eagerly awaited for, most fans felt disappointed by the season's narrative and mocked showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss for the writing. Some fans are hopeful and waiting for the show's spinoff prequel series to revive the franchise' tarnished reputation. After all this, fans scorned when it was revealed that Game of Thrones would be running for the Emmy Awards. Nevertheless, the outcome of the Emmy nominations may surprise most of them.
On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter released a list of the Emmy Nominations and it seems that Game of Thrones is still on top as the show has most nominations in various categories, making it the show with the most nominations. These nominations include, Best Drama Series, Kit Harrington for lead actor in a drama series, Emilia Clarke for lead actress in a drama series, Alfie Allen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage for supporting actor in a drama series, Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headley, Sophie Turner and Maisie Willaims for supporting actress in a drama series. On its official twitter handle, the show claims that it has been nominated for over 32 categories in total. Whoa!
