George R. R. Martin Says Game of Thrones Could've Lasted 13 Seasons

The Handmaid's Tale

"The final season's taking a long time because it's the biggest thing we've ever done", Benioff said.

Emilia Clarke had a moment when Game of Thrones wrapped filming. He told Variety at the Emmys that his books contain more than enough material for additional seasons; the show could have gone for 11, 12, or 13 seasons, Martin said.

"Even though it's six episodes, it was almost a full year in Belfast either prepping it or shooting it", he continued.

"David and Dan have been saying for five years that seven seasons was all they would go". I think when people see it they're going to understand why it took so long.

"Game of Thrones" was the most-tweeted-about show of the night, with "The Assassination of Gianni Versace", "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", "This Is Us", and "The Crown" also getting plenty of mentions.

Hamilton snatches pole in Singapore
In the sweltering heat of the Singapore Grand Prix , Lewis Hamilton turned up the heat on Sebastian Vettel a notch further. Vettel emerged from his auto dejected and facing an nearly insurmountable 40-point title comeback.

"I can not walk down the street anymore", added the actor.

Game of Thrones picked up nine Emmys this year, including Best Drama and a Best Supporting Actor win for Peter Dinklage. "But you are honestly the most talented, awesome people I know, besides my wife, Erica, who I think I forgot to thank a couple of years ago. I'm very temperamental and I love you very much".

When you woke up Monday morning there was only one man in the history of television who had ever won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series three times.

"I just felt kind of disjointed and a bit, like, 'Ohhh, '" Emmanuel said. In a brief, yet touching acceptance speech, Dinklage gave a shout-out to Coster-Waldau, saying, "Thank you to my brother from another mother, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau".

That should really come as no surprise given the complexity of Martin's character lineup in GOT.
