‘Game of Thrones’ Wins Outstanding Drama Series at the 2016 Emmys

Game of Thrones dominated the Iron Throne of the Emmys for the second year in a row. And honestly, who was surprised?

The series won the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series on Sunday night. Creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss took the stage alongside George R.R. Martin, nominees Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams. Last year the HBO series set the record for the most Emmy wins in a year with 12 wins and tied it this year.

Game of Thrones also broke a major record on Sunday night, becoming the most awarded scripted show in Emmys history. The series now has 38 total awards, beating out the previous record holder Frasier with 37 wins. Host Jimmy Kimmel rode into the Emmys on the back of Drogon with Daenerys, so we should’ve expected the show to burn down any and all previous records.

On top of Outstanding Drama, Game of Thrones also took home awards for Benioff and Weiss for Outstanding Writing Drama (“Battle of the Bastards”), Miguel Sapochnik for Outstanding Directing Drama (“Battle of the Bastards”), Outstanding Production Design, and Outstanding Casting, among other Creative Arts Emmys.

Game of Thrones beat out Better Call Saul, Downton Abbey, The Americans, Mr. Robot, Homeland, House of Cards, and The Americans. See the full list of Emmy 2016 winners here.
