We admit some perplexity at the failure of Ramin Djawadi’s stunning main theme to score a nomination, especially the way it’s captured the imagination of fans across the world, with covers going viral. And Gemma Jackson not acknowledged for her art direction? A great shame, but there’s always next season!
