A day after adding four more Emmys to their trophy case, Game of Thrones has one more award for their collection: a Hugo Award!
At the presentation today, Game of Thrones took home the prize for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form. The award is for “The Rains of Castamere”, written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, and directed by David Nutter.
The award was accepted in person by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Benioff added a brief anecdote about speaking with George R.R. Martin’s wife Paris, before the show premiered.
According to Benioff, Paris told them, “Boys, I hope you didn’t fuck it up!”
The Hugo Awards celebrate excellence in science fiction and fantasy each year. Last year, “Blackwater” won in the same category.
