Game of Thrones Creator: “We Never Set Out to Offend Anyone”

grrm dndGame of Thrones was the big winner Sunday Night when it grabbed a record 12 Emmy wins, highest for any show in history. The show creator, David Benioff recently spoke to EW about this amazing achievement:

“It’s such a surreal experience. Dan [Weiss] and I have been [working on the show] eight years now, back to that first meeting with George [R.R. Martin] at The Palm right by here on Santa Monica Blvd. To have George sitting right in front of us, to have it happen on his birthday, to break the record for most Emmys … the whole night’s been surreal and so much more than we expected or could have hoped for. It’s just really, really fun.”

Benioff also responded to criticism that the show received for its bold and controversial storylines and especially the one that involved Sansa:

“We never set out to offend anyone. To try to offend anyone would be juvenile, but to be afraid to offend people would be cowardly. There were people saying they were never going to watch again. We’re just trying to tell the story the best we can. This means a lot, it’s a very nice feeling.”
