“Game of Thrones
” is back — and ready for a crafts showdown with fellow HBO
.” Both series are well-represented at the 2018 Primetime Emmys, particularly in the below-the-line categories. But because “Thrones” sat last year out, this will be the first time the shows go head-to-head.
“Thrones” leads this year’s Emmy nomination tally, with 22, but “Westworld
” is close behind with 21, along with “Saturday Night Live
.” Behind that is Hulu
’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” (20) and FX
’s “The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.” The secret to so many nominations, of course, is being well-represented in multiple above- and below-the-line fields.
Among the crafts noms for “Thrones”: Casting For A Drama Series, Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes, Hairstyling For A Single-Camera Series, Makeup For A Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic), Music Composition For A Series (Original Dramatic Score), Production Design For A Narrative Period Or Fantasy Program (One Hour Or More), Prosthetic Makeup For A Series,
