It’s no secret the last season of Game of Thrones was a let-down. Everyone watched it, almost everyone dissed it, and now, after the dust has settled, there’s another thorn in the side of GoT fans.
The 2019 Emmy nomination ballots were announced recently, and The Long Night, The Last of the Starks, and The Iron Throne have been submitted for Best Directing. The finale The Iron Throne, directed by showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, has also been nominated for Best Writing.
They submitted “The Iron Throne” for Best Writing HAHAHA what a mess. #GameOfThrones #Emmys— Wilfred Lucas (@wilflucas) June 11, 2019
Do we agree with the episodes and actors HBO is forwarding for consideration for Emmys? Where’s the love for “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms,” huh? https://t.co/j7RpHNnhJk— Winter is Coming (@WiCnet) June 11, 2019
TFW you realize the best episode of #GameOfThrones‘ last season—”A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms,” obviously—is submitted for neither Directing nor Writing at the #Emmys. pic.twitter.com/PpSDtxjI4q— Myles McNutt (@Memles) June 10, 2019

The #GameofThrones team submitted their episodes for writing and directing Emmy categories and none of the ones submitted are the best one of the season. Hate to see it. pic.twitter.com/O6pWXPO64H— Joanna Robinson (@jowrotethis) June 10, 2019
HBO is submitting the Game of Thrones finale into the “Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series” category at the Emmys. pic.twitter.com/WGIafVUVEp— will, brb, kinda (@willmesilane) June 11, 2019
Instead of submitting episodes like Winterfell or A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, which were arguably better, HBO sent these. But hey, knowing how TV awards work, maybe they’ll still cop a win. Who know?
