As far as the Golden Globes are concerned, winter continues for “Game of Thrones.”.
The HBO behemoth walked away empty-handed from Sunday night’s telecast after a final season that was not well received by either critics or viewers.
The result isn’t entirely surprising given that the show previously won only a single Golden Globe, and its only nomination this year was for Kit Harington in the best actor in a drama series category.
Harington, who played the character of Jon Snow, lost out to Brian Cox of “Succession.”
Dinklage’s on-camera sister Lena Headey was nominated in the equivalent actress category in 2017, but lost to Olivia Colman for her performance in “The Night Manager.”.
Season 8 of “Game of Thrones” drew such a substantial backlash that hundreds of thousands of fans started a petition demanding that HBO remake the final collection of episodes.
Nevertheless, earlier in the year, the final season did carry home a substantial 12 Emmys, including best drama, from a record 32 nominations. »
