The Writer’s Guild Awards announced their nominations for the most exceptional television programs of 2016 and we’re pleased to share that Game of Thrones has received two! The recipients will be honored at the ceremony on Sunday, February 19th 2017.
Game of Thrones’ first nomination is for the “Drama Series” award and will be competing alongside our other favorite drama series: Westworld. Also nominated are The Americans, Better Call Saul, and Stranger Things. Recipients for the award are series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and writers Bryan Cogman and David Hill, along with HBO.
The second nomination is for the phenomenal season 6 finale “The Winds of Winter” written by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, for Episodic Drama. The episode will compete against two episodes of Better Call Saul (“Gloves Off” and the jaw-dropping season 2 finale “Klick”), Shameless‘ “I Am a Storm” and new series This Is Us episode “The Trip.”
With so much unique and extraordinary programming available, we’re thrilled to see our beloved fantasy series continuously nominated!
Congratulations to the hard working and outstanding writing staff! We wish Game of Thrones good fortune in the awards to come!
