The Last of Us HBO

HBO's TV adaptation of The Last of Us had contrasting fortunes at the Emmy Awards and Golden Globes this past weekend, as the series scooped up eight Emmy Awards in a variety of categories while it was completely forgotten about at the Golden Globes. It received three nominations, but lost out to Succession.

At The Emmy Awards, the vote in the following categories went to The Last of Us:

  • Outstanding prosthetic makeup
  • Outstanding special visual effects in a season or a movie
  • Outstanding main title design
  • Outstanding sound editing for a comedy or drama series (one hour)
  • Outstanding sound mixing for a comedy or drama series (one hour)
  • Outstanding picture editing for a drama series
  • Outstanding guest actress in a drama series — Storm Reid as Riley
  • Outstanding guest actor in a drama series — Nick Offerman as Bill

On the win, Nick Offerman went to thank Murry Bartlett, who played Frank, as he described the role as an "inseparable partnership". You can read Offerman's speech in the tweet below. Storm Reid also thanked "everyone who has been part of my journey and poured into me" on Instagram. "Thank you for allowing me to be y’all’s Riley."

Of course, a second season from HBO will look to adapt some of The Last of Us: Part II for TV, with filming set to start in the coming months ahead of a projected release in 2025. Do you think the TV show deserved all these awards? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
