Being nominated for GG best drama (and really any nomination) is a team award, and what a team it is! Besides a phenomenal cast, let’s give a shout out to the entire crew, the brilliant writers, directors, producers, cinematographers and camera crew, the music, the sets, makeup (and prosthetics! like Jamie’s back!), sound, art, visual affects, editing, casting, stunt men and women, location scouts, Scotland(!), the costume design, Terry Dresbach and her team.

Without Murtagh, we wouldn't have this or this:
We wouldn't know how to put on our kilts!
Then there are the very smart folks who make sure the actors don't get blown up! Yikes!
