HBO has thrown a curveball and has submitted not one but two of its leading actors for the category Best Actor in a Leading Role. If you haven’t guessed already yes, it is Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke who have been nominated for their respective roles as Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.

 

This choice carries some significance as no actor or actress from the show has ever been eligible to compete for a lead role at the ceremony before, and Game of Thrones has actually had bad luck at the award show in the past few years and has been beaten time and time again by shows such as The Crown in 2017, Mr Robot in 2016 and The Affair in 2015.

Although Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington have been given the nod for the supporting actor category in the past, this time we are curious as to whether HBO is freeing up the nomination for best supporting actor for other members of the Game of Thrones ensemble. The choice to move the pair to the lead category may reflect the narrative shift in the show as a series, and perhaps suggests a continuation of this in the forthcoming and most anticipated eighth and final season. Either way, we are super excited to see how the show fairs at the award ceremony, as it has been an outrageously popular summer evening affair that not many people missed out on this season.
