Game of Thrones earned a single Golden Globes nomination for its final season. Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow in the series, is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series – Drama. Fans were shocked by the single nomination, which stands in stark contrast to the season's record-setting 32 Emmy Awards nominations. The show is most notably absent from the Best Television Series -- Drama category, a category It's been nominated in five times before but has never won.
The reaction to this "snub" is proving as polarizing as the season itself. While some fans are outraged by Game of Thrones' lack of accolades, others are more shocked that the same fandom that decried the show's final season are shocked that critics aren't giving it awards recognition.
We've collected some of their reactions from fans who are baffled by the outrage on social media here. Keep reading to see what they have to say.
