The ‘GOT’ Special Effects Team Might’ve Leaked A Major Tyrion Spoiler

Posted on
The first rule of working for Game of Thrones is not to spoil Game of Thrones. One might think this was a given after nearly a decade on the air, but it’s actually a lot harder than it sounds. There have been accidental leaks here and there like when Sophie Turner revealed she survived Season 7. Excitement is a spoiler’s best friend, and in the glee of winning an Emmy, the Game of Thrones FX Team might’ve leaked a Season 8 spoiler.

The Emmys, which have over 120 categories to award every year, split their ceremony into multiple nights, with the bulk of the awards given out at the Creative Arts Emmys, held the weekend before the nationally broadcast Primetime Emmys. This year, Game of Thrones Season 7 has 22 nominations in all, seven for the Primetime broadcast and 15 for the Creative Arts ceremonies.

Of those 15, they took home seven, including Outstanding Special Visual Effects for Season 7’s penultimate episode, “Beyond the Wall.” This is their sixth straight win since Season 2 in 2012, out of seven nominations altogether. Backstage producers Steve Kullback, Sam Conway, and Joe Bauer and the rest of the team couldn’t keep their excitement in.

And something else may have also slipped out too. Watch:
