And the short lists continue to roll out, as the Screen Actors Guild and the Hollywood Foreign Press offer up their nominees for next year’s awards. Following its first season, Game of Thrones picked up up two nominations each at the SAG Awards and the Golden Globes, but this time around, it looks like the second season just didn’t make much of an impression with the nominating bodies. For the SAG Awards, the show did manage to repeat its nomination for Best Stunt Ensemble (which it won last season), but missed out on repeating for Best Drama Ensemble.
As for the Globes, last year saw nominations in Best Drama and Best Supporting Actor for Peter Dinklage (which Dinklage went on to win), but this time the show drew no nominations. It’s shaping up to be a somewhat quieter awards season for the series, although the Emmys will doubtless bring a host of technical nominations, as it has in previous seasons.
