Game Of Thrones receives Best Drama Emmy nominations – see full list of nominations here!

In the wake of the list of this years Emmy nominations one of the front-runners is the HBO hit medieval fantasy Game Of Thrones.

Nominated for both the highly prestigious awards for Best Drama and Best Supporting Actor for Peter Dinklage, this adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s series of novels, A Song of Ice and Fire, is well-known for its graphic content, including sex and violence, and is being tipped to do very well in the ceremony, which will be presented Sept. 23 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

This is the second year running that the some-what controversial fantasy series has been nominated for the main prize at the Emmys, who have previously been notorious for overlooking genre shows.

The nomination list has caused quite a stir, with quite a few surprises, including the lack of nominations for the hit sci-fi show, Fringe.
