GOT Takes BAFTA

Hot damn.

GAME OF THRONES has just won the Radio Times BAFTA Award:

http://bafta-television.tumblr.com/post/50282069146/bafta-television-radio-times-audience-award-winner

The BAFTAs, for those unfamiliar with them, are the British Emmys. Despite the fact that we shoot in Belfast, Northern Ireland (and Morocco, Iceland, Croatia, and Malta) and that half of our cast is British (most of the rest being Irish, with here and there a Dane, a Norwegian, a German, and even a token American), we are considered to be an American show, I guess because HBO is an American company, and therefore ineligible for the BAFTAs.

However, this one category, the Radio Times award, is for the best international show, and unlike the other BAFTAs, it is chosen by popular vote.

Which I guess just proves that a lot of Brits are watching, even if we are an "American" show.

Congrats to all!!

BAFTA
Not just international shows, ALL shows on Brit telly so GOT is officially the best programme on the box according to the Great British public, (you beat off 'Homeland', 'Call the Midwives' (Brit show), the opening ceremony of the London Olympics (Brit obviously) & couple of others I can't remember. Lord Tywin & Brienne were there too!

I guess it could be difficult get the whole cast to chant "USA! USA!" for this "American' show... We only have one man, or just Halfman, representing US!

Excellent!
As a Scot, I'm so pleased to hear that GOT got this award, and it is even more significant being an audience choice :) Game of Thrones is certainly the best TV show I have seen. The TV show and books are a mythological masterpiece. I love every second of it.

Incidentally, will need to get my backside to the place where the Winterfell scenes were filmed! Only recently learned that was in Scotland.

Congratulations to all! You have much to be proud of.

I am hearing rumors on Facebook that there is a cameo with you George in the episode tonight. Will be interesting to see if I can spot you since I don't think you would be wearing your hat :)

Congrats to you, and the crew!

today was the last day of the Ottawa Comic Con, and there was a panel with Ross Mullan (White Walker end of season 2). great guy, someone suggested him for Bloodraven.
