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.

Nevertheless, earlier in the year, the final season did carry home a substantial 12 Emmys, including best drama, from a record 32 nominations. »
