George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones is competing with Westworld at the 2017 Golden Globe awards. Reflecting on the upcoming ceremony, Martin expressed delight at the nominations but reckons that Westworld may beat Game of Thrones for the ‘Best Television Series – Drama’ category:
“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.”
Other two nominees include The Crown and This is Us. 74th Golden Globe Awards will be telecasted from January 8, 2017 5 pm PST on NBC, live from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. For a complete list of nominees, click here.
