The 2011 Television Emmy nominations are out and HBO‘s Game of Thrones has scored big with 13 nominations including:

Peter Dinklage for Best Supporting Actor!

This Nerd Bastard called it last month and was pleased to see that prediction come true. Dinklage has an uphill battle against John Slattery of AMC’s Mad Men (another fantastic show), for his portrayal of Rodger Sterling. Slattery has been nominated for the fourth year in a row and might be seen as the “must receive” nomination this year. I still lean toward Dinklage though. Slattery is great but he doesn’t steal every scene and rivit my attention like Dinklage has in his role as Tyrion in Game of Thrones.

Game of Thrones was also nominated for:

  • Best Drama Series: Game of Thrones
  • Supporting Actor in a Drama Series: Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister
  • Writing in a Drama Series: David Benioff and Dan Weiss for “Baelor”
  • Direction in a Single-Camera Series: Timothy van Patten for “Winter is Coming”
  • Casting in a Drama Series: Nina Gold and Robert Sterne
  • Costumes for a Drama Series: Michelle Clapton and Rachael Webb-Crozier for “The Pointy End”
  • Hairstyling in a Single-Camera Series: Kevin Alexander and Candice Banks for “A Golden Crown”
  • Main Title Design: Angus Wall, Robert Feng, Kirk H. Shintani, and Hameed Shaukat
  • Non-prosthetic Makeup in a Single-Camera Series: Paul Engelen and Melissa Lackersteen for “Winter is Coming”
  • Prosethtic Makeup in a Series: Paul Engelen and Conor O’Sullivan for “A Golden Crown”
  • Sound Editing for a Series: Stefan Hendrix, Tim Hands, Michelle McCormack, Steve Fanagan, Andy Kennedy, Jon Stevenson, Robin Whittaker, Caoimhe Doyle, and Eoghan McDonnell
  • Special Visual effects for a Series: Adam McInnes, Angela Barson, Lucy Ainsworth-Taylor, Raf Morant, Henry Badgett, Damien Mace, Stuart Brisdon, and Graham Hills
  • Stunt Coordination: Paul Jennings
