Game of Thrones wins best drama series at 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards

EW – It’s the show that will kill everyone you love but that will never die itself. (Not that we want it to.)

 

Game of Thrones won the trophy for Best Drama Series at the 22nd annual Critics’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles Sunday. This marks the second win — and sixth nomination — for the hit HBO series.

 

Although none of the executive producers were able to attend the ceremony because the show is busy filming in Europe, the award will have a temporary home: Kristian Nairn, who played Hodor on the show and was DJing the award ceremony, accepted the award on the show’s behalf.

 

It’s no secret that critics love Thrones, but with the series now having an end date, the win means that much more. And technically, this is the show’s first full-out win considering that it last took home a trophy in 2013 when it tied with Breaking Bad.

Congrats to Game of Thrones on Making Emmy History for Most Awards Ever

013

EW – It’s now official: Game of Thrones has won more Emmys than any primetime TV show ever.

 

The HBO fantasy drama won three awards at the 68th annual Emmy Awards on Sunday night, pushing its lifetime total number of awards to 38 – one more than Frasier, the previous all-time record holder.

 

Thrones picked up awards for best writing in a drama series, best directing in a drama series, and best drama on Sunday night. Overall, Thrones won 12 Emmys this year, out of 23 total nominations.

 

The series already became the most-honored drama series after picking up nine Emmys at the Creative Arts ceremony last weekend, surpassing longtime title holders Hill Street Blues and The West Wing. By scoring another three awards Sunday, Thrones becomes the only primetime scripted series to ever have won this many awards.

2016 Television Critics Association Awards nominations

EW – With Emmy season in full swing, the Television Critics Association has announced the roster of nominees for its 32nd annual awards ceremony, boosting HBO and FX to the top of the pack with 12 and 11 overall nominations, respectively.

 

While HBO and FX lead in total nominations, USA’s Mr. Robot, a first-time nominee, garnered the most individual nods for a series (tied with FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), earning recognition in Individual Achievement in Drama (Rami Malek), Outstanding New Program, Outstanding Achievement in Drama, and Program of the Year.

 

Elsewhere in Program of the Year, HBO scored a nomination for Game of Thrones, while FX landed three series amid the category’s seven slots: Fargo, The Americans, and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Lifetime’s UnREAL and Netflix’s Making a Murderer round out the list of Program of the Year contenders.

 

The CW also made a strong showing with the TCA, earning three total nominations for its Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, including in Individual Achievement in Comedy (Rachel Bloom) and Outstanding New Program. It’s worth noting that each of the nominees in the latter category come from smaller networks, as series from the usual suspects like ABC, HBO, and other major TV players are noticeably absent. WGN America (Underground), Netflix (Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Masters of None), USA (Mr. Robot), and Lifetime (UnREAL), however, picked up the slack.

Game of Thrones: Brienne to ‘burst forth’ in season 6

EW – Brienne is done waiting around in the snow. Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie spoke with EW about her character’s storyline in the upcoming sixth season, and revealed Brienne of Tarth is going to have a more active arc this year.

 

“After season 5, people would come up on the street moaning about why wasn’t Brienne wasn’t doing more,” Christie says of her character, who spent the back half of last year patiently watching for a distress signal from Sansa (Sophie Turner). “I’d say, ‘I’m terribly sorry, I’m not really in charge of that.’ I got the scripts for season 6 and I thought the story was so fantastic. It’s really exciting to see Brienne burst forth again.”

 

Of course, more screen time on Thrones also typically means a character faces more dire peril. Up until now, Brienne’s ferocious combat skills have kept her alive despite being saddled with traits that usually prove quickly fatal in Westeros (you know, like being a decent person). This time, she won’t be able to rely just on her brawn to survive, an evolution that Christie embraces. “Brienne is so unique and unconventional and so strong, and I love the writing hasn’t allowed her to just rest there,” Christie says. “[Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] are so terrific about how they develop characters. We see her develop like the way a human being might through life.”

 

And once again, Brienne will be encountering characters she has never met before (speculate away). “So many characters for so long had their isolated storylines and as a fan of this show as well, I’ve been wanting and dreaming — ‘I wonder what it would be like to see this person interact with this other person?’ And that’s what starts to unfold.”

 

Last season’s relatively modest on-screen duties did have benefits, however, as Christie was able devote time to her coveted big-screen roles as Commander Lyme in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and playing the chrome trooper Captain Phasma in Star Wars: The Force Awakens — with more to come in Episode VIII (Brienne may never earn a royal title, but Christie could be dubbed The Franchise Queen).

 

Yet for Christie, high-profile roles are not just about her own career — the actress says she felt like an unusual-looking outsider prior to joining Thrones and hopes her rise helps inspire Hollywood to create more diverse roles. “Women talk to me about how Brienne is important to them and they’re really happy it illustrates an unconventional side of femininity and womanhood compared to what we’re used to seeing,” she says. “There’s a shift in the kind of things people want to see in entertainment, and I hope this breeds in people’s minds and we see more different incarnations of women.”

 

And while she’s keeping busy with other roles, Christie says she has zero interest in exiting Thrones to work on movies — if she can help it. “I really am in a position now where I’m very lucky to do other things,” she says, “But I don’t ever want to stop playing this part.”
