This HBO fantasy series won a total of 12 Emmy for its final season which is it’s eight season. Peter Dinklage got award for outstanding supporting actor and the show winning for outstanding drama series on Sunday evening.
The show also won 10 technical awards last weekend at the Creative Arts Emmys after racking up a total of 32 nominations for its final season. All the nominations included outstanding drama series, Kit Harington for best actor, Emilia Clarke for best actress, four best supporting actress nods (Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams) and a trio of best supporting actor contenders (Alfie Allen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Dinklage).
Ahead of presenting an award, part of the cast took the stage together where they were honored for their work over the past eight seasons ans they spoke about how much the series means to them.
“It’s an honor for us all to be here tonight” began GoT actor Allen.
“I think all of us agree how amazing the entire last season was for us,” Turner told the crowd. “We had no idea how it would end, who would betray whom and who would end up with the prize.”
“As much as we wish the show could have gone on forever, our time had come,” Williams added. “And tonight, is a chance to, once again, thank all of those who watched.”
The series set a new record for the most nominations for a series in 2019. Before Sunday, GoT boasted 260 Emmys and had been nominated over 700 times since it premiered in 2011.
