Golden Globe Award for Game of Thrones? NO, but why? See full list of 2017 winners

Last night’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony is dominating entertainment news headlines today, and while many of the big wins of the night were expected, a few raised some eyebrows.

However, it seems that yet again, HBO fantasy drama Game of Thrones, despite being one of THE most globally popular shows (arguably) ever, has been “slayed”, losing out primarily to The Crown.

Of that, The Telegraph reports, “The Golden Globes has never been a huge fan of Game of Thrones.

“Out of a total of just six nominations, the show has scored just one success – Peter Dinklage taking home the best supporting actor award in 2012.

“In 2013 and 2014, the show didn’t even garner a nomination.”

The article adds that Game of Thrones’ “bad run” at the Golden Globes continued this year as the “biggest applause” for the show came courtesy of a joke made by presenter Jimmy Fallon, who said, “What would it be like if King Joffrey had lived?”

And referencing Donald Trump, added, “Well, in 12 days we’re going to find out.”

As the night went on and the awards continued to be denied to Game of Thrones, Twitter was increasingly awash with angry posts from GoT fans.

One irate Golden Globes viewer tweeted, “Wasted time all never get back on #GoldenGlobes and #GOT didnt win tv drama? Pfft never again.”

Another wrote, “How did Lena Headey not win for her incredible performance last season?”
