HBO Chooses 12 ‘House of the Dragon’ Actors For Awards Consideration

The HBO show, House of the Dragon, a prequel to the original Game of Thrones is created by Ryan Condal and author, George R R Martin, himself. Meanwhile, the showrunners of the show are both Condal and Miguel Sapochnik. The pilot of the series was seen by over 10 million viewers.

This is the biggest premiere number in HBO’s history. Just like the original Game of Thrones series, fans were expecting the prequel to do the same as they praised the cast and crew. The very first season of House of the Dragon has gotten great reviews and throughout the season were commended for the amazing character development, writing, score, and performances.

Especially actors like Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy, Milly Alcock, and Olivia Cooke. Fans were wondering how the channel will choose actors for award nominations. Since it’s been a few weeks since the season finale aired, we can imagine how HBO might have chosen 12 of their actors for the submission.

As per Gold Derby, two actors from the series have been chosen for lead nominations while the 10 others are chosen for supporting performances. Emma D’Arcy is being campaigned for the lead actress award and Paddy Considine is being rallied for lead actor.

Emma played the older version of Rhaenyra Targaryen while Paddy played her father, King Viserys Targaryen. For supporting actor awards, HBO submitted Fabian Frankel, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Needham, Matt Smith, and Steve Toussaint. Meanwhile, for supporting actresses, the submissions were Milly Alcock, Eve Best, Emily Carey, Olivia Cooke, and Sonoya Mizuno.


After the first season, Sapochnik bid goodbye to the show, and Condal will be the sole showrunner in the next season. The show was renewed before the finale aired and also less than a week after its premiere. However, fans have to wait as HBO’s President of Programming, Casey Bloys, has confirmed that the second season will premiere in 2024.

If you are yet to watch the prequel series to Game of Thrones, you need to watch it before the awards. The series is set 200 years before Game of Thrones and 172 years before the birth of Daenerys Targaryen. It will show us how the beginning of the end was for the House of Targaryen.
