Why didn’t Game of Thrones receive any Emmy nominations this year after dominating the nominations last year?
Well, the hit HBO drama fell out of the eligibility window for this year’s awards. So, season seven of the show will be in contention for the 2018 Emmy Awards.
For the 2016 Emmys, the drama earned 23 nominations and won 12 trophies, including Outstanding Drama Series.
Season seven will kick off this Sunday, and will star Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, Bella Ramsey as Lyanna Mormont, Liam Cunningham as Davos Seaworth, John Bradley as Samwell Tarly, Hannah Murray as Gilly, Ellie Kendrick as Meera Reed, Isaac Hempstead Wright as Bran Stark, Kristofer Hivju as Tormund Giantsbane, Gwendoline Christieas Brienne of Tarth, Aidan Gillen as Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish, Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, Rory McCann as Sandor “The Hound” Clegane, Maisie Williams as Arya Stark, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen, Conleth Hill as Varys, and Nathalie Emmanuel as Missandei.
