Game of Thrones Once Again Breaks an Emmy Record!

Published

on

Game of Thrones fans now have another reason to give when persuading you to watch “the best show ever.” Last night, at the 68th annual Emmy Awards, the HBO TV series once again made history by winning the most awards than any other primetime show ever. It is hard to compete with a show that has dragons, nudity, and beheadings every episode! By the end of the night, the show had snagged best directing, best writing, and best dramatic series! Their shelf now holds a total of 38 Emmy Awards, which is now the official all-time record.

Their shelf now holds a total of 38 Emmy Awards, which is now the official all-time record. Before Game of Thrones defined history, NBC’s Frasier (1993-2004) was the show that held the record with 37 Primetime Emmy Awards. Winter is Coming clearly translates into “more awards are coming!” Overall, in 2016, the fantasy drama was nominated 23 times and won 12 awards, 9 of which were at the Creative Arts ceremony. Because of that, Game of Thrones knocked Hill Street Blues and The West Wing out by becoming the most-honored drama series.

Besides a well written script based on George R.R. Martin’s series, the series itself has a pretty nice budget. The creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss thanked HBO in their acceptance speech for supporting them and helping “keep this giant lizard flying.”  They definitely have a lot to be thankful for considering each episode costs about $10 million, making every episode as visually appealing as a movie in the theaters. It is no wonder they keep beating other shows!

The fact that everyone is talking about the Game of Thrones‘ winnings at the Emmy Awards and they weren’t even the TV show that brought home the most awards really says something. The People v. OJ took home 5 awards but they are being overshadowed since they didn’t break any records. Maybe next year, other shows can have a chance in the spotlight but I doubt it considering the show is still going strong after 6 seasons.

We will have to see what happens in the 69th Emmy Awards. If Game of Thrones wins seven awards, then they will even surpass Saturday Night Live. That TV show has been on the air for 42 years and won 44 Emmys so if this HBO series beats them, it will be a tremendous win. Will the older show be able to keep its title for most won Emmy awards in history or will Benioff and Weiss’ show be crowned king. Maybe they should call the next awards ceremony Game of Awards!
