"A Song of Ice and Fire" writer George RR Martin joined HBO showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss on stage to accept one of the show's 12 awards.
Addressing the Microsoft Theater crowd, Benioff said,
We have the best cast that's I think ever been assembled.
That's a bold statement, but taking the success and popularity of "GoT" into account, Benioff is probably right on the money.
Ugh, is it summer 2017 yet?
