The nominations for the 72nd Golden Globe Awards were announced today and Game of Thrones has finally been acknowledged after a bit of a drought.
News after the jump.
Game of Thrones was nominated for Best Television Series – Drama but individual actors were snubbed this year in the Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor categories. In its category, GoT is up against some traditional favorites from years past like Downtown Abbey and The Good Wife, as well as facing competition from newer shows like House of Cards and The Affair.
HBO led the TV nominations with 15. Unfortunately, Game of Thrones hasn’t received much love from the Golden Globes. In 2012 it had two nominations, one for Best Television Series – Drama and another for Best Supporting Actor for Peter Dinklage, which he won. In the years since it hasn’t been nominated at all. Maybe the long drought is over and it has a chance of winning Best Series this year.
The winners will be announced on January 11, 2015. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed.
