Awards season continues, and so does Game of Thrones streak of taking home accolades. This time, it’s a win from the Irish Film and Drama awards for the series overall and for everyone’s favorite Onion Knight, Liam Cunningham.
Thrones took home top honors as Best Drama Series, while Cunningham (Davos Seaworth) earned Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Drama) for his work on Season 7. Was it his “This is Jon Snow” line that clinched the award? We’ll never know, but I speculate that it was a deciding factor.
Other Thrones-related nominations included Aidan Gillen for Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Drama) — tough competition for Petyr Baelish to go against Davos Seaworth! — Ronan Hill (brother to Conleth Hill, aka Varys) for Sound, and Ed Bruce and Nicholas Murphy for Visual Effects. In addition, Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) earned a nomination for Best Actor (Drama) for the BBC series Rellik. Awards season isn’t over yet, so stay tuned to see if any of our other favorites take home some well-deserved honors!
