    I still have the feeling that Weiss and Benioff will get the second nomination for The Finale. IDK why.

    Say what you want about the writing and story, but the directing of the season was amazing.

    I managed to contact Miguel Sapochnik’s manager and he confirmed he will be submitting The Long Night for Directing (GOT).

    He is easily winning again.

    Thank God. right choice! He’s easily winning with this one.

    What’s up with all these people popping up out of nowhere having contacts in the industry. Anyways, that’s great. Wise choice imo. I have a feeling they might go for “The Long Night” in writing as well since the finale won’t do them any favors.

    “The Long Night” in Writing? Where… where was it? Also, there was hardly any dialogue… what even? lol

    I believe the best GOT episode in terms of dialog was A Knight of a Seven Kingdoms. I thaught the writing there was fantastic.

    Exactly. This is what should be submitted. It might win tbh

    While I totally get what people are saying with a lack of dialogue being a reason why an episode should not be submitted for writing, but writing doesn’t only mean dialogue. Writing means story progression, character work, structure, and more on – the number of words spoken really doesn’t matter. Unfortunately, The Long Night is neither a good dialogue nor a good story episode, with the Night King storyline ending abruptly and plot armor taking away from the suspense. Unless they submit the second episode, the show doesn’t deserve to win writing IMO. Cogman’s script was quite brilliant in every way possible.

    Thing is D&D have too big of an ego to let another writer get nominated or/and win instead of them. I could see them not submitting it at all.

    Which is a shame cause none of their episodes will be nominated so might as well throw Cogman a bone. It’s the best written episode of the season. It’s warm, it’s cozy/ intimate, a little drama here and there and all characters are still somewhat in character. It’s the best reviewed episode as well. They’d be stupid not to submit this one because none of the other episodes this season stand a chance.

    The best example of a brilliant script not relying on dialogue is Buffy’s Hush.

    But the thing is, it’s the most likely Series to be nominated here so might as well leave some space for it.

    We have seen shows go from writing wins to snubs (Sherlock, Homeland) and we have seen shows that have previously won writing win series after they are dropped from writing (Modern Family, 24), so I could see Game of Thrones miss here. I reckon that this season of Game of Thrones would also be one of the worst-reviewed seasons of television ever to be nominated for its writing, so a nomination would be kind of unprecedented in that sense. That The Good Wife was able to come back for its divisive finale after years of snubs bodes well for Game of Thrones maintaining its nomination here though. Glad to have predicted what Miguel Sapochnik submitted.
