Here’s all the things Game of Thrones received on the 2019 Primetime Emmys!


Game of Thrones took the Emmy stage one final time tonight, as Hollywood bid goodbye to a present that’s modified the business. What {hardware} did it carry house? Let’s see!

Basically, Game of Thrones received precisely the awards you anticipated it to win and nothing extra, which was a bit shocking, contemplating how closely some classes had been saturated with actors and creatives from the present.

But issues began predictably, with Peter Dinklage taking house a fourth win for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series beating out two of his Game of Thrones costars:

Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series

  • Better Call Saul — Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut
  • Better Call Saul — Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring
  • Game of Thrones — Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy
  • Game of Thrones — Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jamie Lannister
  • Game of Thrones — Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister
  • House of Cards — Michael Kelly as Doug Stamper
  • This Is Us — Chris Sullivan as Toby Damon

Dinklage swore throughout his speech however they bleeped out. Standby for purple carpet reveals!

Things received shocking after they introduced the winner of the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series award. This one was thick with Thrones solid members, so I figured that certainly one of them would take it:

Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series

  • Game of Thrones — Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth
  • Game of Thrones — Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister
  • Game of Thrones — Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark
  • Game of Thrones — Maisie Williams as Arya Stark
  • Killing Eve — Fiona Shaw as Carolyn Martens
  • Ozark — Julia Garner as Ruth Langmore

Julia Garner positively tore it up on Ozark, though I’m upset that none of those ladies received an award for his or her decade of labor on Thrones. Something tells me they’ll be tremendous, although.

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series

  • Better Call Saul — Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill
  • Game of Thrones — Kit Harington as Jon Snow
  • Ozark — Jason Bateman as Martin ‘Marty’ Byrde
  • Pose — Billy Porter as Pray Tell
  • This Is Us — Sterling Ok. Brown as Randall Pearson
  • This Is Us — Milo Ventimiglia as Jack Pearson

Of course I hoped for a Kit Harington win right here, however to be trustworthy, I didn’t actually anticipate him to tug it off, good as he was within the last season and all through the sequence usually. And it’s very laborious to begrudge Billy Porter some glory — Pose is getting a number of buzz and he tears it up.

Daenerys Distraught

Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series

  • Game of Thrones — Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen
  • House of Cards — Robin Wright as Claire Underwood
  • How To Get Away With Murder — Viola Davis as Annalise Keating
  • Killing Eve — Jodie Comer as Villanelle
  • Killing Eve — Sandra Oh as Eve Polastri
  • Ozark — Laura Linney as Wendy Byrde
  • This Is Us — Mandy Moore as Rebecca Pearson

This was Clarke’s first time being nominated on this class, so I knew she had an uphill battle. Still, she was superb within the last season, and I believed perhaps the voters would honor her for her work over the previous eight seasons. But yay, the award went to the extraordinarily proficient Jodie Comer of Killing Eve.

Outstanding Directing For A Drama Series

  • Game Of Thrones — “The Iron Throne”
  • Game Of Thrones — “The Last Of The Starks”
  • Game Of Thrones — “The Long Night”
  • The Handmaid’s Tale — “Holly”
  • Killing Eve — “Desperate Times”
  • Ozark — “Reparations”

Wow, the Emmy voters actually appear to love Ozark, don’t they?

This is the place I begin to surprise if vote-splitting performed a job within the outcomes, each on this class and within the Outstanding Supporting Actress one. Did having so many Game of Thrones candidates lesson the prospect for any certainly one of them to win?

Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series

  • Better Call Saul — “Winner”
  • Bodyguard — “Episode 1”
  • Game Of Thrones — “The Iron Throne”
  • The Handmaid’s Tale — “Holly”
  • Killing Eve — “Nice And Neat”
  • Succession — “Nobody Is Ever Missing”

I can’t say I used to be too shocked by this one. The sequence finale of Game of Thrones acquired a good quantity of blowback, whereas Succession is basically coming into its personal as a drama.

Outstanding Drama Series

  • Better Call Saul
  • Bodyguard
  • Game Of Thrones
  • Killing Eve
  • Ozark
  • Pose
  • Succession
  • This Is Us

Finally, Game of Thrones took house the highest award of the evening, the fourth time its achieved so in as many seasons. With that, it ties the report for many Outstanding Drama Series wins.

Game of Thrones has already secured its place in Emmy historical past — it’s received probably the most Emmys of any present aside from Saturday Night Live, which has been on the air for over 40 years in order that’s sort of an unfair struggle. Still, I feel I hoped for a couple of extra fireworks tonight, with maybe a brand new individual or two taking house the gold. In the tip, it doesn’t matter a lot, as a result of anybody on that present can write their very own ticket due to its success, and it solely succeeded due to their laborious work.

So congrats, congrats to the crew, and congrats to the followers who liked Game of Thrones for eight seasons. We shall by no means see their like once more.
