Going to carry on for a bit longer: it has 22 Emmy nominations.
No idea how it received most of those.

If we are looking at the final season:
Best drama: Lol.
Lead Actor (Kit Harrington): His character was a husk of what it once was.
Supporting Actress (Lena Headey): Basically spent the entire season on a balcony.
Writing for a Drama Series (Episode 6): Are you effin kidding me?

Drogon should be mentioned somewhere there.
Surprised no special effects category.
For a TV series the special effects were off the charts

The other prequel is still in the works though.

HBO gives Game of Thrones Targaryen prequel a full series order

As one Game of Thrones prequel dies, another rises from the ashes.

HBO announced Tuesday that its GoT prequel project about the Targaryen civil war has officially received a full series order for 10 episodes.

The spot-on title: House of the Dragon.

Also announced: Emmy-winning GoT director Miguel Sapochnik will serve as co-showrunner and direct the pilot. Sapochnik directed acclaimed episodes such as “Battle of the Bastards,” “Hardhome” and “The Long Night.”

The announcement comes just hours after news broke that the network’s firstGoT prequel project from showrunner Jane Goldman starring Naomi Watts was not moving forward.

The new prequel was co-created by author George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal (Colony) — who will also be a showrunner on the series.

A poster was also released with the tagline “Fire Will Reign”:

I'd have preferred an Age of Heroes series rather than Targaryen politicking. Wonder who they'd get to portray Maegor if he'll even feature. That's one sick puppy.

Thing is, Martin hasn’t really written that much on the age of heroes... it’s more like anecdotes from Old Nan...

What he has written, in detail ‘tho, is a Targ history in Westeros.

Also... Dragons.

I’m here for this back-story.

Yeah, I know. I'm just a sucker for that type of fantasy. Wish someone would adapt David Gemmel's works.

We know the Targs generally end up a bit unhinged because of all the inbreeding - going this far back, though, will they be less inclined to carry out genocide?

Nope, Maegor the third(?) Targ king was absolute bats**t bloodthirsty. He wiped out the Faith Militant who then came back in the main series due to king Tommen.

Targs generally fight each other for the Iron Throne.

Sure, great houses take sides and there are battles, but it’s generally dragon rider on dragon rider violence.

At least they can re-use the dragon models from GoT, save some expenses there.

Always made more sense to go with the targ history. Much more GRRM material to work with.
