The author of A Song of Ice and Fire congratulated the competition on their Golden Globe nominations on his Live Journal “Not A Blog.” George R.R. Martin also had a few kind words for the Game of Thrones crew and wished Westworld nothing but luck at the ceremony on January 8th.

The author celebrated the Golden Age of Television as he further applauded the other nominees:

Being an HBO guy, I’m thrilled to see that both GAME OF THRONES and WESTWORLD have been nominated for the big prize… though WESTWORLD is going to be some tough competition. (In fact, I would figure WW for the favorite). And as a science fiction and fantasy geek, I am also delighted to see that STRANGER THINGS made the list. Three out of five finalists being genre shows… and during this golden age of television… is another sign of just how far we’ve come.

His “pleased” mood extended well wishes to the excellent crew at Game of Thrones (David Benioff, Dan Weiss, Bryan Cogman, and, especially, Lena Heady’s well-deserved nomination), whose hard work truly paid off with their outstanding sixth season.

It’s really hard to judge between the two series and pick which one deserves the award more, but I’d have to agree with Martin that Westworld will be some tough completion after their phenomenal season finale.

  1. The maze is not for you …

    Very gracious of George. I get the warm feelies, thinking of him there in his Southwest home being happy over the rise in stature of science fiction and fantasy. Happy Holidays, George, whatever you are doing. As I’ve said in the past, I will be rooting strongest for GoT to win all the goodies, but if WW takes a few, I would not be devastated. However, I do think it’s time for Lena.

    Now I need to go find some cookies. Happy happy to you all. And nice work so far with this site.
