GAMES OF THRONES Competes For Golden Globe

The Golden Globe nominations are out for 2016, and HBO's sixth season of GAME OF THRONES has made the shortlist once again. GOT will be competing for the Globe for best drama with WESTWORLD, STRANGER THINGS, THIS IS US, and THE CROWN.

My congratulations to David Benioff, Dan Weiss, Bryan Cogman, and the rest of our amazing cast and crew... and especially to Lena Headey, who earned a Globe nomination of her own for Best Supporting Actress.



The full list of this year's nominees can be found here: http://variety.com/2016/film/news/golden-globe-nominations-2017-nominees-full-list-1201938375/

Being an HBO guy, I'm thrilled that to see that both GAME OF THRONES and WESTWORLD have been nominated for the big prize... though WESTWORLD is going to be some tough competition. (In fact, I would figure WW for the favorite). And as an science fiction and fantasy geek, I am also delighted to see that STRANGER THINGS made the list. Three out of five finalists being genre shows... and during this golden age of television... is another sign of just how far we've come.

My thanks to the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

The winners will be announced in LA on Sunday, January 8.
