Game Of Thrones has done it once again! The HBO show has continued its great run at the Emmys by winning the Emmy award for Outstanding Drama Series and proving that it’s the King of all series! This is the third time the show is winning the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series.
Game Of Thrones last won the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series in 2015 and 2016. The show would’ve won it for the third time in a row but that wasn’t possible as Game Of Thrones wasn’t eligible for 2017 Emmys.
“Writing for these actors is the honour of a lifetime but we didn’t invent these characters, that is George R.R. Martin, the show could not be without the mad genius of George. Thank you for letting us take care of your people,” said David Benioff while accepting the award.
D.B. Weiss further added, “A show is only as good as the people who make it and we’re blessed and lucky to have the greatest cast, the greatest crew and the greatest team of producers led by Bernie Caulfield. It’s a honour to work with them from Spain, to Iceland, all the way to our home base of Belfast, Northern Ireland. Here’s to you, Belfast.”
