The 71st annual Primetime Emmy Awards are scheduled to take place this Sunday, September 22, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. While Game of Thrones is in an ideal position to take home several statuettes, the HBO series already has quite a few awards under its belt.
You see, the 2019 Creative Arts Emmy Awards took place over the weekend. (This particular ceremony honors the talent behind the camera, whereas the primetime broadcast focuses on the actors.)
During the awards show, GoT won ten—we repeat, ten—Emmy Awards for the show’s eighth (and final) season, making it the most decorated series.
Winning categories include Outstanding Special Visual Effects, Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes, Outstanding Makeup for a Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic), Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Drama Series, Outstanding Main Title Design, Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series, Outstanding Music Composition for a Series, Outstanding Sound Mixing (One Hour Series), Outstanding Picture Editing (Single-Camera Drama) and Outstanding Sound Editing (One Hour Series).
HBO (25) is currently in the lead with the most Emmy Awards, followed by Netflix (23) and National Geographic (8). However, many believe this is only the beginning for Game of Thrones.
In fact, the series is nominated for a total of 11 Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Kit Harington) and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Emilia Clarke), to name a few.
So, will GoT reign victorious at the primetime ceremony? Be sure to tune into the 2019 Emmy Awards this Sunday on Fox.
