Game of Thrones
Medieval settings, checked. Intimate scenes, checked. Gore, checked. Swords, checked. When you combine all those under a single banner, you get Game of Thrones.
Inspired by the works of George R. R. Martin, GOT brought us one of the fascinating TV shows in history. From the surface, the plot is simple: different houses fighting with one another for a single throne that rules the nation, aka the Iron Throne.
However, what makes the story amazing is the depth of every character, the plot twists, the element of fantasy and, not to mention, the undead.
Though the final season may not be as well-received by the audience as the previous seasons, it still ended up bagging 32 nominations.
How to Get Away with Murder
How to Get Away with Murder isn’t your average courtroom-drama TV series. In the TV show, the Oscar-winner actress, Viola Davis, plays the character of Annalise Keating, a professional criminal defense lawyer who is always at the top of her game.
The series follows Keating and her titular law class that goes by the name, How to Get Away with Murder. The class consists of a group of some of the brightest students selected by Keating herself who assist her and her associate attorneys with some cold-blooded cases.
Every season brings a nerve-wracking plot that becomes fabulous with the phenomenal performances by Davis and other stars. Davis has been nominated for the “Outstanding Lead Actress in Drama Series.”
