Game of Thrones wins Outstanding Drama Series at Emmy Awards 2019
Game of Thrones won the award for Outstanding Drama Series for its eighth and final season at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony. The honour marks the show's fourth win in the category.
The creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff were joined on stage by the entire cast and crew of the show. They started off by appreciating the mastermind George R.R. Martin, thanking him for taking a chance on "two producers who have never done it before".
"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 -- and I can't believe we did it. We did it all together and it's over and we shall never see your like again," said David Benioff in a fitting farewell note.
Stating that the production of the show was gruelling, Weiss joked, "It's amazing that you all are still alive." He then thanked the entire crew saying, "You make everything we write better... We love you and loved every minute we have spent with all of you."
The show, which set a new record by earning 32 nominations for the 2019 Emmys, the most-ever for a single season of a show, won 10 Emmys at last week's Creative Arts ceremony for categories like Music Composition and Visual Effects. After the show on Sunday night, the total tally was 12 Emmys.
