team felt the love last night at the Producers Guild of America (PGA) Awards where they won the Norman Felton Award for Outstanding Producer of Episodic Television, Drama.

What time does Game of Thrones air in the US? Am I right in thinking it is 9pm EST?
I only ask because if it’s 9pm, then the countdown clock is 1 hour too much as it doesn’t seem to take into account the clocks going forward in March.
GRRM remains an executive producer for the show, which is why he received an Emmy along with the rest of the producers when Game of Thrones won the Outstanding Drama Series Emmy last fall. However, he was not involved in the day-to-day production of Season 5, which may explain why he was not on the list of winning producers for the PGA awards.
Furthermore, I believe that the various Hollywood guilds tend to have very strict rules about membership and who is eligible to be nominated for their awards
(ex. Every year, the Writers Guild of America declares certain screenplays to be ineligible for the WGA Awards because the screenwriters aren’t members and/or don’t meet their eligibility requirements. Sometimes, those disqualified screenwriters go on to win the Oscar, because the Academy doesn’t have the same restrictions).
If GRRM isn’t an active member of the Producers Guild, he may not have been eligible to be nominated with the rest of GOT’s producing team.
If someone is more familiar with the precise nature of guild regulations than I am, please chime in. I follow these kind of awards for fun, but my interest is strictly an amateur one.
Yay! Finally getting the recognition they deserve…best to D&D and, of course, Cogman!
