Forget the iron throne: the cast and crew of Game of Thrones are busy counting their statuettes from the 2019 Emmy Awards. The HBO fantasy epic won a total of 12 Emmys for its eighth and final season, with Peter Dinklage winning 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, which wrapped with a controversial series finale in May.
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 on Sunday, part of the cast took the stage together, where they were honored for their work over the past eight seasons and spoke about how much the series means to them.
