Game of Thrones is a spectacular show from beginning to end. The acting is phenomenal as is the writing. They also are up for 18 other nominations this year leading all of the other contenders. I think this proves how strong the show is. I believe the only thing that could beat it would be House of Cards.
Given the huge scope of the books, the writers have done a fantastic job with the story lines. GOT has amazing costumes, and a very strong and talented cast. People are constantly discussing what happened on the show, and how the actors have been able to inhabit the characters they are playing. So I think GOT definitely deserves an Emmy or two.
Game of Thrones Will Win the Emmy for Best Show because so many people like it. It is the "baby of the month." It is a show that has caught the attention of the pop culture-eating public, and the Emmys pay attention to the ratings and the entertainment that is being consumed by Americans across the map.
While the HBO hit Game of Thrones -- based off of George R. R. Martin's best-selling Song of Ice and Fire book series -- is a smash hit with fans, it is less likely to take the Emmy for Best Show than a series with a wider audience or a more hard-hitting political undertone. The show is popular, but it usually takes more than ratings to win an Emmy.
