HBO’s Game of Thrones received the most nominations for the upcoming 71st Emmy Awards show.
On Tuesday, American comedians Ken Jeong and D’Arcy Carden presented the nominations for the 71st Emmy Awards from the Wolf Theatre at the Television Academy’s Saban Media Center.
Game of thrones received 32 nominations across various categories. Some of these categories are Best Drama Series, Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series, Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series, Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and a lot more.
This enormous amount of nominations came as a surprise to a lot of persons on Twitter who questioned the possibility of these nominations despite having an unsatisfying final season.
According to imdb.com, all Game of Thrones episodes from seasons 1 through to season 7, have ratings from 8.0 and above. However, the last 4 episodes of the final season, season 8, received the lowest ratings the TV show has ever seen. These episodes were episode 3 ‘The long night’ with ratings 7.8, episode 4 ‘The last of the Starks’ with ratings 5.9, episode 5 ‘The Bells’ with ratings 6.5 and episode 6 ‘The Iron Throne’ with a drastic decrease in ratings with 4.6.
Well, will Game Of Thrones win all its categories at the ceremony?
In second place with 20 nominations is American comedy series “The Marvelous Mrs15 Maisel” and 3rd place with 19 nominations is HBO’s “Chernobyl”.
The 71st annual Emmy Awards ceremony is scheduled to be held on September 14, 2019.
