‘Game of Thrones,’ Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage take home Saturn Awards!

Peter Dinklage seems to be satisfied with 'Game of Thrones' coming to an end when it is.

Peter Dinklage took home another award for Tyrion Lannister at the 2019 Saturn Awards.

Say what you will about the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones (and plenty of people have), but the most-watched show in the history of television is still racking up awards more than four months after it came to its tumultuous conclusion. Case in point: the 2019 Saturn Awards, the annual awards ceremony that honors the best in sci-fi, fantasy, horror and genre fiction.

On Friday the 13th (no, really!) in Los Angeles, Thrones was one of the most awarded entries at the event hosted by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films. It led all television shows with nine nominations and was named the best fantasy series on television for its final season.

The cast also dominated acting categories, with Emilia Clarke winning the best television actress award for her portrayal of the doomed Daenerys Targaryen. Peter Dinklage won best supporting actor on television for his role as Tyrion Lannister, besting a field of nominees that included his on-screen brother, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. The prize for best younger actor on television went to Maisie Williams, who portrayed Ayra Stark. Will the upcoming spinoff shows — including the history of House Targaryen that is reportedly close to being greenlit — have as much success? Only time will tell.

    1. Congrats to Peter, Emilia, and Maisie! Very well earned! Coincidentally, these are the three performers I most want to take home Emmys next Sunday.

    2. Congrats everyone!

      Peter is my favorite actor on the show but it is a little odd that he could have 4 Emmys and the others in the excellent cast do not have any. I think Charles Dance was also critical in the “making” of GOT a success – but too late for him how……

    4. Congratulations to all of the winners! A very well deserved reward for some truly great work in Season 8, and across the entire run of the show. Here’s hoping this is a precursor to an even bigger victory at the Emmys in two weeks!

      AryaArya:
      You couldn’t fit Maisie in your title?

      A Girl has no name.

      LOL, you both. I hope we hear her name, Emilia’s and maybe Peter’s (though I slightly favour Alfie) called out for awards next week.

    6. Emilia Clarke and Maisie Williams had two of the toughest roles ever, portraying a character all the way from childhood/adolescence into adulthood. Even a more ordinary coming of age story would have been difficult, but each actress played a female character who endured an arduous journey, often alone (literally and/or psychologically) through a darkly violent, misogynistic world.

      Emilia gets special praise for selling the final plot twist – the reveal that Dany was never the romantic hero most of the audience wanted, but was instead a deeply flawed, tragic hero, to whom too much power had been entrusted. She had to show Dany’s final failure of character aboard a mechanical bull, surrounded by green felt, with no other actors to help her. Simply amazing.

    7. Peter and Maisie have been knocking it out of the part since the beginning but Emilia has come on leaps and bounds as the show has grown so I’m most pleased for her.

      So did Saturn give a prize for writing?

      Hilariously enough, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” won last year for best writing in film. “A Quiet Place” won this year for best writing in film.

      I don’t think they do best writing for tv shows, but I could be wrong.

      Interesting! StarWars…..best writing? I did not see it but heard a lot, lol. I heard that A Quiet Place was original in concept.

    10. Mango: No need for you to be boorish.

      Just stating a fact. You keep on and on saying the same things, and making the same snide digs at the writers. It’s boring.

      It may help you if you skip reading my posts. There is no need for you to do so. Try that.
