Another Nomination

The Directors Guild has announced this year's nominations for its annual award, and I'm delighted to report that Tim Van Patten has been nominated for his direction of our first episode, "Winter Is Coming."

http://www.dga.org/Awards/Annual.aspx#drama

Van Patten faces some tough competition, sharing the ballot with Michael Cuesta (HOMELAND), Vince Gilligan (BREAKING BAD), Patty Jenkins (THE KILLING), and Michael Waxman (FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS), but I'll be pulling for him... to win the award, and to come back and direct some more episodes for us in future (though BOARDWALK EMPIRE is keeping him plenty busy).

With this DGA nomination, and the SAG and WGA nominations previously reported here, it means that GAME OF THRONES has been recognized by all three of the major Hollywood guilds.

Pretty damn cool.

I would have nominated the director of your episode :P Though honestly it's not just because you wrote it, there were a lot of shots I really liked and it was so well put together.

It's great to see "Game of Thrones" garnering widespread acclaim. Now the rest of the world knows what your legions of devoted fans already knew: Your magnum opus is an American literary masterpiece. Congratulations!

Golden Globes
Me and my wife played "spot the Martin" during the golden globes. I won, but it was an epic victory for fantasy fans everywhere.
