In all its years, HBO’s Game of Thrones has never won a Golden Globe, despite being one of the most popular and beloved shows on TV. But the spin-off prequel series House of the Dragon won best drama at this week’s Golden Globes, and writer George RR Martin is thrilled with the unexpected development.
“This is a post I never expected to write,” He said on his blog.
Game of Thrones was nominated five times during its run but never won, with Peter Dinklage winning Best Supporting Actor. However, the show itself never won. House of the Dragon won Best Drama for its first season, and while Martin couldn’t make it to Los Angeles for the awards show (“Because… well, I have a lot to do, and I’m very busy with a lot Back. This…”), he’s excited that House of the Dragon won.
“We faced some very strong competition. The Crown had won twice before, so we knew how much the Hollywood foreign press loved the show,” he said. “Better Call Saul and Ozark were both set for their final seasons, and usually a show that bows out gets a boost from that,” Martin said. “Last chance, and all. And Severance was also in that category, one of the most popular shows of last year. Against this field, I thought we were the best of the long shots.”
“But when the envelope was opened, it was the House of the Dragon…”
Miguel Sapochnik (who is not returning for season 2), Millie Alcock, and Emma D’Arcy accepted the award, and “it was great to see them up there,” Martin said. House of the Dragon Season 2 showrunner Ryan Condell could not make it as he is “deep in pre-production” on the second season in London.
“But I know he’s just as excited as I am. My hat’s off to our amazing cast and crew; this is their Globe, too. And of course, congratulations to all our friends at HBO, who made the show made it possible. Thanks to the Hollywood Foreign Press and everyone who voted for us… and everyone who voted for The Crown, Severance, Ozark, and Better Call Saul, too. Amazing shows, everyone,” said Martin. . “And thanks to all of you, our fans, viewers and readers too.”
“No one expected us to win,” Martin clarified in the blog post.
