The production team behind HBO’s blockbuster “Game of Thrones” will be given the BAFTA Special Award at this year’s British Academy Television Craft Awards.

Hannah Murray and John Bradley from the hit series will collect the award on behalf of the team. BAFTA said the accolade is recognition of the boundaries that have been pushed across all areas of production in the making of the fantasy epic.

Filming is underway on the eighth and final six-episode season of “Game of Thrones,” which will air in 2019. HBO is working on several potential spinoffs.

The award also recognizes the support that “Game of Thrones” has provided for high-end TV production in the U.K., BAFTA said. The show has filmed across various locations in Northern Ireland and set up a production headquarters at Titanic Studios in Belfast, the Northern Irish capital, which has been a base for the series since the pilot.

Speaking on behalf of the production team, executive producers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff said in a statement: “Many, many people work insanely hard to create any film or television show. They are creators every bit as much as actors, writers, producers or directors, and deserve to be recognized as such.”

“The craft behind what is one of the most popular dramas of our time is nothing short of incredible, from the breath-taking location shots to the intricately designed costumes and set pieces, and not forgetting the level of detail from the makeup and prosthetics team, to name a few,” added Krishnendu Majumdar, chair of BAFTA’s television committee. “Huge congratulations to everyone involved.”

The BAFTA Craft Awards take place on April 22 in London. They will be live streamed on YouTube and Twitter. [Source]

Star Wars will return to the Cannes Film Festival with the global premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story, debuting out of competition on May 15.

Solo is not the first Star Wars film to debut at the star-studded event. Two of the prequel trilogy films, Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, also premiered out of competition in 2002 and 2005, respectively. Entertainment Weekly has additional details about the film festival’s ties to the franchise and Star Wars creator George Lucas.

Solo stars Alden Ehrenreich, stepping into Harrison Ford’s shoes as the young Han Solo, with Donald Glover as the Lando Calrissian, previously played by Billy Dee Williams. Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke, Westworld‘s Thandie Newton, and Woody Harrelson also have prominent roles in the movie.

The journey to Solo‘s release has been a turbulent one. Much like the first Star Wars standalone film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, released in 2016, Solo has had some production issues—to the point when Lucasfilm fired the film’s original directors, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, for “creative differences.” Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy replaced them with Hollywood veteran Ron Howard, and Lord and Miller will received executive producer credits.

Disney and Lucasfilm released the official teaser trailer to the next standalone film in the Star Wars franchise in February, and Howard confirmed via Twitter at the end of March that another full-length trailer would follow soon, although an exact date has not been announced yet.

Troubles on set reportedly settled down once Howard took the helm, based on Vulture‘s recent interview with an anonymous actor, who described two very different production environments before and after the directorial change. Given that it is a Star Wars film, Solo is almost guaranteed to do well at the box office—even the much maligned prequel films broke records.

It’s official: The Time’s Up initiative is gaining global traction—and there’s receipts to back it up.

On Sunday, ahead of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards, 190 women working in the entertainment industry in the U.K. signed their names to an open letter announcing their intention to support and continue the Time’s Up movement that began across the pond.

“In autumn of last year, when stories came out in the press about sexual harassment, discrimination and abuse in the entertainment industry, 700,000 female farm workers wrote to us to say they stood with us in solidarity,” the letter, which was published in The Guardian, reads. “Their letter explained that they knew what we were going through, that they stood shoulder to shoulder with us in our pain and in our belief that a better world was possible. This solidarity between women — activists and survivors — across all industries is what inspired Time’s Up and what continues to galvanize us.”

The letter added that the movement is bigger than just the entertainment industry, and is instead intersectional, reaching people “across race, class, community, ability and work environment, to talk about the imbalance of power.”

“Here in the UK, this movement is at a critical juncture,” the letter read, further explaining that the gender pay gap there for young women in their 20s is “now five times greater than it was six years ago. Research in the UK has found that more than half of all women said they have experienced sexual harassment at work.” The letter noted that women working as freelancers or contractors are particularly vulnerable to harassment and abuse.

“There is no question that Time’s Up should be and will be a global movement,” it continued. “A movement that is defined and led by those affected by the problem, not by those in power.”

The letter was signed by Emma Watson, Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Emilia Clarke, and more.

In a savvy awards show move, Gold Derby has learned exclusively that HBO will submit “Game of Thrones” scene-stealers Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington in the lead categories at the 2018 Golden Globes. This summer’s seventh season focused more prominently on their characters — queen of dragons Daenerys Targaryen and no-longer-bastard Jon Snow — which in turn gave the actors more screen time than ever before. Now that Clarke and Harington have jumped up to the lead races, it’s time to go in and update your Golden Globes predictions for Best TV Drama Actress and Best TV Drama Actor.

If this new strategy works out, both stars will be earning their first career Golden Globe nominations. Clarke scored a trio of Emmy noms (2013, 2015, 2016) while Harington earned a single Emmy bid in 2016. “Game of Thrones” has romped through the Emmys in recent years, winning Best Drama Series twice (2015-2016) and claiming a record of 38 awards over the course of its run. However, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has only given the show six nominations, with a single win for Peter Dinklage as Best TV Supporting Actor in 2012.

After six years apart, Season 7 of HBO’s fantasy epic finally allowed Clarke and Harington to share scenes — and bed sheets — together in their quest to rule the iron throne. What the characters don’t realize quite yet is that Daenerys is actually Jon’s aunt, which makes their love scene in the season finale all the more awkward.

HBO has confirmed to Gold Derby that while Clarke and Harington are jumping up to the lead races at the 2018 Golden Globes, all of the other “Game of Thrones” performers will be submitted in the supporting categories. The nominations for the Golden Globes will be announced December 11. Will this savvy strategy pay off for Clarke and Harington? [Source]

The pitch from Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber is based on a South Korean film that was an adaptation of a web series from Drake Doremus.

Fox 2000 and Temple Hill have landed a hot pitch from The Fault in Our Stars screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, with Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke attached to star.

The pitch, which hit the town Wednesday, caught the interest of several studios and producers. It’s an adaptation of the 2015 South Korean film The Beauty Inside — which was itself an adaptation of an innovative 2012 web series by Drake Doremus.

The pitch’s path begins back in 2012 when Doremus directed a social film developed by Intel and Toshiba. Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Topher Grace, the film had six episodes that included interactive storytelling that gave the audience a chance to be a part of the film. It became a cult hit, and won a daytime Emmy for Outstanding New Approach to an Original Daytime Program or Series.

The story centered on a man who wakes up every day in a different body — and the woman who loved him no matter what he looked like on the outside.

The 2015 South Korean Film, directed by Baik, brought this story to the big screen and starred Kim Sang-ho, Kim Min-jae, Jo Dal-hwan.

In Fox 2000’s version, Clarke will play the woman who falls for the man with the body-switching disorder. Several actors will be cast to play the male lead.

Along with Fox 2000 and Temple Hill, Rumble Entertainment’s Greg Chou is producing (the company holds the remake rights). Doris Pfardrescher is executive producing.

Clarke’s star has been quickly rising since she began starring as Daenerys on HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones. She’s recently been cast in the Star Wars Han Solo film with Alden Ehrenreich. She was most recently seen in romance Me Before You and actioner Terminator Genisys. She’s repped by CAA and Emptage Hallett in the U.K. [Source]

After a few months of speculation, HBO has confirmed it: Season 8 of Game of Thrones will be the series’ final season.

Casey Bloys, HBO’s new programming president, confirmed it Saturday at the Television Critics Association summer tour to members of the press. Speaking with the press, Bloys revealed it has been the plan for a while:

“Yes, I think [the showrunners, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff] have a very specific plan about the number of seasons they want to do. If I could get them to do more, I would take 10 seasons but we want to take their lead with what they could do and what the best version of the show is.”

However, Bloys left the door open about the possibility of a potential spinoff when the question was raised:

“We’ve talked about it. It’s not something I’m opposed to but it has to make sense creatively. I’m not sure the guys can wrap their heads around it when they are about to start production. We’re open to it; the guys aren’t opposed to it but there’s no concrete plans right now.”

 It’s impossible to think that HBO wouldn’t be giving serious thought to a spinoff. While the company has always been committed to quality stories, it’s previously shown a willingness to continue on with a popular property after its initial end, such as giving the green light to a second season of True Detective, a decision that was met with mixed results. But Game of Thrones is a different beast. Not the initially one-off season of True Detective, Thrones has been HBO’s longest-running and most successful series ever. Season 6 drew an average of 25 million viewers per episode, and, rather than wane as many shows do as they draw nearer to a close, Game of Thrones‘ ratings have only increased every year. After last season’s finale set a series record of 8.1 million live plus same day viewers, the finale of Season 6 shattered even that number at 8.9 million viewers. [Source]
