Earlier this month, Chernobyl was the highest rated IMDb TV show.
It is a retelling of the massive explosion of the nuclear power plant in the Ukraise on 26 April 1986 and its aftermath. The explosion released radioactive material across Belarus, Russia and Ukraine and as far as Scandinavia and western Europe.
This year will be the final run for Martin's GoT at the Emmys as the show is expected to get nominated in the Outstanding Drama Series, among others.
The show, on which the writer served as executive producer, already has three Emmys in its kitty.
If nominated, the five-part Chernobyl would be vying for an Outstanding Limited Series Emmy.
