There isn’t a show more popular on television that Game of Thrones, but for some reason the show never manages to rake in the awards like it probably should.
Outside of being a thrilling story to follow, Game of Thrones is a technical marvel as the episodes cost as much as independent movies and the results are outstanding. But every so often, the story of the show and the technical feats come together to wow critics so much that they can’t help but honor the show.
That’s what happened this week, as according to Blastr, Game of Thrones took home a Hugo for the Red Wedding episode as well as The Rains of Castamere episode.
On the TV and film side of the evening, Game of Thrones took home the award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form for its devastating “Red Wedding” episode, “The Rains of Castamere.”
What makes this so special is that the Best Presenation Award is the Hugo equivalent to Best Picture. Game of Thrones beat out Doctor Who and Orphan Black for the award which isn’t a small feat and it further highlights how powerful the show is and how lasting some of its biggest moments are.
