    1. To be honest I haven’t seen most of the shows GoT is up against so can’t make a judgement. I bailed out of “Penny Dreadful” early – sometimes I don’t mind a bit of silliness but there was a dreadfully hammy seance scene which – well, it helped me decide that show wasn’t my kind of thing. I would like GoT to win something.

    2. Well this is interesting as it relates to the sound, but while it”s the visuals of BoB that really drew the attention, the sound was quite great, eg just seeing the “next week” trailer I really liked the Smalljon chant leading and definetely the

      Pike Wall chants by the Bolton soldiers

      The bit where Jon is suffocating uder his ow men is great sound wise, the dulled sound effects really gave a kind of “underwater” feeling and the chaos of the Cavalry clashing not only looked chaotic but felt it to as reinforced by the sound effects

      Thing is, the sound sinks into the background so seamlessly you tend not to notice it — in a good way, eg when introduced to the slow motion shot of the charging Vale Knights etc

    3. Dame of Mercia,

      I’ve watched quite a bit or all of most the shows. I skipped AHS: Roanoke, Shooter and Narcose completely. These specific awards don’t have much to do with the quality of the program of course, but no, GoT is on another level there. Penny was a tough series for me to get through. Too slow among other issues. Black Sails has a following but it too doesn’t have enough kick to get me to binge. I manage to get through a couple here and there. I won’t even touch on the cyclical TWD again.
