Sometimes this discussion thread is more entertaining than GOT S8. I mean not that it matters because it’s just me, but as much as I disliked this season (if you don’t believe me, just watch one of the recaps I did with Riley & Matt), I would still probably vote for it. D&D screwed up this season, but that doesn’t mean everyone else did as well; in fact, the show was firing on all cylinders if you disregard the writing (the directing was so-so at times too). I also still have respect for how this show shaped and changed the TV landscape. I wonder if some voters feel the same.
HBO should probably hire us as writers for the GoT prequel!

But hasn’t it winning the series award 3 times been enough for solidfying GoT’s contribution to TV landscape? It is more than BrBa and The Sopranos have won. Sweeping the tech categories and possibly giving it a Directing win would be enough for rewarding the hardwork that went into making the show without declaring it as Best Drama again imo.
On a different note, I have always wondered how GoT would have fared if the Emmys never disqualified the tape system. It was doomed to get penalized for its weird pacing and disconnected storyline structure that would confuse the hell out of voters who would see the show for the first time, it might never would have won the Series award. Weirdly enough its chances would have increased with s8, seeing how straightforward and over-simplified this season has ended up being. Non-viewers would have no problem with Dany abruptly going mad, or The Night King being easily killed off, lol.June 13, 2019 at 9:34 am #1202936081
Succession is winning Writing, Directing and Series. You heard it from me, folks.June 13, 2019 at 9:36 am #1202936086
So is anyone else taking the leap and adding any of the GOT self-submitters to their predictions? I have both Allen and Christie in now (and Van Houten in guest).June 13, 2019 at 9:40 am #1202936103

I added Alfie Allen and it just felt so right. Ugh, he’ll not get nominated though so I’ll take him out soon.
I also added Carice Van Houten, I’m not as confident as most of you are but I have her for now.June 13, 2019 at 10:53 am #1202936237
Omg stop acting like people who hated this last season are only internet trolls. Season 8 (and the show in general) was already called out by the industry for its treatment of women. Hollywood professionals won’t straight up tweet “season 8 is garbage” because they care about their careers and don’t want to have HBO and D&D (because I’m sure a lot of actors want to be in a new Star Wars triology) as enemies but it does not mean they didn’t hate the season as much as random people online did.
Hollywood professionals mostly defended the season, if they said anything. Like you said, the “professionals” calling it garbage came from the SJW angle, which in my view re just as valuable as the internet trolls.June 13, 2019 at 11:02 am #1202936250
I don’t know how any criticism for this final season could be considered coming from “the SJW angle.” The SJW argument is honestly eye roll-worthy when it’s brought up on this site.
“No user starts this shady” - someone culturally relevant.
Also got banned because...reasons? So, I guess ciao.June 13, 2019 at 11:06 am #1202936257

Yikes at using “SJW” to dismiss someone’s opinion. I won’t bother replying to you anymore, you’re too delusional.June 13, 2019 at 11:11 am #1202936271This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.June 13, 2019 at 11:19 am #1202936283
I literally spent last year’s Emmys arguing with blind THT stans. I really don’t want to do this with the GoT ones.June 13, 2019 at 1:35 pm #1202936408
My issue is just that you think that fifty percent voted for Game of Thrones last year because that would be a landslide, which does line up with how it lost Writing/Directing/Casting/Editing and was snubbed in Lead Actor/Lead Actress/Cinematography.
Well, I didn’t mean exactly 50 percent… I just meant that I felt that many people voted for it and the rest split the vote. I don’t know the statistics. I’m open to being wrong about this. It’s just a guess.June 13, 2019 at 1:40 pm #1202936412
Can’t we all just agree to disagree with GoT…? I personally agree with both sides of the argument. I personally hated this last season so much. I haven’t been in love with the show since season 6. However, I still think it was quality television and deserves some love. I wouldn’t necessarily be upset if it lost best drama because it wasn’t the best drama this year but I still think it’ll probably win. But anyways…June 13, 2019 at 1:43 pm #1202936418

It physically hurts me that Alfie Allen never got the recognition he deserved for the show. 🙁June 13, 2019 at 1:43 pm #1202936420

Not true, the only defender I have seen is Stephen King and some actors from previous season of GoT, although there have been many other previous actors who have insulted it. And stop categorizing millions of people and accept that you are part of the minority in regards to GoT.
