2019 Emmy Winner List: Game Of Thrones, Fleabag, And More
The 2019 edition of the Emmy Awards have finished up, and Game of Thrones was the event's biggest winner overall. The show and its actors took home two awards during the broadcast this evening, but it tallied 10 earlier this month during the Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony for a total of 12 (counting Peter Dinklage's Outstanding Supporting Actor) awards for its final season. The 12 wins ties the show's record-setting 5th season in 2015 which also won 12 awards.
Game of Thrones took home the highly coveted Outstanding Drama Series award. The other nominees included Better Call Saul, Bodyguard, Killing Eve, Ozark, Pose, Succession, and This Is Us.
Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones, won for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama series. This is his fourth Outstanding Supporting Actor win for Game of Thrones, and that's a record for most wins in the category. He surpasses Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul, who won three times for his performance as Jesse Pinkman on the hit AMC TV show.
Game of Thrones Season 8 won 10 Creative Arts Emmy awards earlier this month in categories such as Outstanding Sound Editing, Outstanding Special Visual Effects, Outstanding Fantasy Costumes, and Outstanding Makeup, among others. With the Best Drama win and Peter Dinklage's win, Game of Thrones tallied 12 Emmy award wins for its final season, which ties the show's 2015 record.
"These last 10 years have been the best years of our lives and for everyone who worked on it, I can't believe we finished it--and I can't believe we did it," showrunner David Benioff said when accepting the award, as reported by Deadline. "We did it all together and it's over and we shall never see your like again."
Over its eight seasons, Game of Thrones picked up 161 nominations and 59 wins, which is a record for any show in history. The Outstanding Drama win for Season 8 is the show's fourth win in that category, following wins in 2015, 2016, and 2018.
The comedy Fleabag created by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge won Outstanding Comedy Series, while Waller-Bridge herself won for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Writing for a Comedy Series for Fleabag.
