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.
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

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?
