You’re reading this correctly. Game of Thrones was NOT nominated for anything this year. Last year Peter Dinklage took home the prize and the series itself was nominated for best drama. We expect Game of Thrones season 2 to pick up some technical awards this season but this snub doesn’t make sense to us.
