Every year, Emmy Awards host and celebrate the best in TV industry across American primetime and daytime entertainment programming. Since it featured in 2011, HBO's fantasy-drama series Game of Thrones has been a regular feature at the annual event. This year too HBO has submitted season 8's episodes for the coming awards season and guess what?
The network has entered DB Weiss and David Benioff's The Iron Throne, which was the finale of the series, as their pitch for the best directed episode of the season. It is the same episode that let fans to petition on remaking the entire season with new and "competent" writers. Also Submitted for Best Directing for the season are Miguel Sapochnik for The Long Night and David Nutter's for The Last of the Starks.
Weiss and Benioff's The Iron Throne is also submitted in Best Writing category. It needs to be kept in mind that the better received episodes like A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms and Winterfell failed to get the network's nod for the awards contention.
Meanwhile, apart from various technical submissions, actors such as Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey and Maisie Williams have also been pitched by the network to appear in the final nomination list.
As soon as the final submissions were put up by the official Emmys website and the news surfaced on social media, like they had reacted to the entirety of the finale season, fans responded with displeasure. See some tweets and views here:
