Game of Thrones makers submit season 8 finale for Emmy consideration; fans express disappointment on Twitter
The final season of Game of Thrones failed to impress viewers with disgruntled fans petitioning to remake the eighth season with 'competent writers'. However, the 2019 Emmy Awards nominations declared Tuesday, revealed that HBO has submitted the finale episode — The Iron Throne — for the best writing category. Though highly debatable, the channel could have selected better options, example the much-appreciated A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.
The ballots will be used to streamline all submissions to select final nominees. Other Game of Thrones episodes like The Iron Throne, The Last of the Starks and The Long Night are all submitted under the directing category.
HBO's decision was not taken well by fans who flooded social media websites with jokes, memes and GIFs.
Check out some of the best fan reactions:

The fact that these idiots would submit themselves for Best Writing and Directing over Brian Cogman and David Nutter for their work of “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” is almost as infuriating as Bran being named king. #GoT https://t.co/T8zuJLkQQa — Hawkeye (@NoelleReinhard) June 12, 2019
You know what's going to be really funny, & embarrassing; the fact that last yr in 2018 emmys, even though GOT had no episodes that year at all they cleaned house, but now in 2019 emmys with their final season aired they are gonna flop so hard!

Art direction and costuming were other groups under which the channel has enlisted GoT.
The hugely popular fantasy series won an Emmy in 2018 (one of their many Emmy wins) for Outstanding Drama.
