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.”

The show had some really stiff competition with The Crown, Stranger Things, The Americans, This Is Us, Westworld and The Handmaid’s Tale fighting it out with Game Of Thrones for winning the award. Game Of Thrones was the most nominated show at this Emmys with 22 nominations and it managed to win two major awards: Outstanding Supporting Actor in Drama Series for Peter Dinklage and Outstanding Drama Series.
These wins take Game Of Thrones’ tally to 9 Emmy awards in 2018, taking into consideration the 7 Creative Arts Emmys that the show won last week. Let us know your thoughts about this major win for the show and do you think the show deserved to win more Emmys tonight?
Liam Cunningham Wins Inaugural Human Rights Award
Game of Thrones actor Liam Cunningham who played the character of Davos Seaworth in the show has won the inaugural Human Rights Award. It was an important win for the actor and something which he is going to cherish for a long time. Read on.
As per Nova, Cunningham was recently bestowed upon by the award by Syrian refugee Husam Alhraki for his campaigning work on the rights of migrants and refugees. On receiving the award Cunningham felt honored and asked Europe to do more for the refugees. He said:
“It’s an honor for me to receive this award from the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, who have been working to make Ireland a freer and better country for almost half a century.
And it comes at a really important moment when Europe is literally allowing refugees to die on our borders. We need to stand up against this, to assert that Europe and Ireland we want to live in are places that offer refuge to people who need our help.”
In another interview recently, he was particularly vocal against the governments for not doing enough for this crisis. He said:
“It’s an ugly, filthy look on our government not to take care of business … we’re not doing as much as we should be doing and as much as we said we would. It’s terrible.”
Cunningham has emerged as a champion of human rights in Ireland and it is so good to see an actor stand up for a real cause.

Game of Thrones actors are amongst the most popular stars on the planet. Naturally, when they decide to grace the red carpet of any awards show, they steal the limelight. Something similar happened in the recently concluded BAFTA Awards as well where we saw many Game of Thrones actors on the red carpet. Read on!
Whether they win any awards or not, Game of Thrones actors get noticed everywhere. Their presence enriches the awards and gives immense pleasure to their million fans. In the recently concluded 73rd British Academy Film Awards, we saw beautiful Emilia Clarke, Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy) who recently expressed big disappointment about fans’ reactions to the season finale and Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) grace the red carpet and they absolutely rocked it.
Although Game of Thrones wasn’t nominated in any categories in BAFTA awards, it has shown pretty good form at the awards recently. After winning itself two awards at the Global TV Demand Awards, it also managed to win an Atrios award from the Casting Society of America.
Well, We would like to see more of our favorite stars, be it red carpet or anywhere else! How did you like their look?

Game of Thrones wins an Artios Award from the Casting Society of America
Game of Thrones’ final season has continued its winning run at the awards. After winning the costume and audio awards recently, it has now won an award at Artios Awards from the Casting Society of America. Despite receiving the extreme reactions to the final season, the show has continued making waves at the awards. Read on to find out more!
As per Variety, in the recently concluded 35th Annual Artios Awards, Game of Thrones took home an Artio Award for Casting Excellence in a TV Drama. The Casting Society of America honoured Game of Thrones casting directors Nina Gold, Robert Sterne and Carla Stronge for their excellent casting of the show. All of them took home an award each for their invaluable contribution towards the show.
One thing we all can agree on is the fact that it had one of the greatest ensembles of the cast ever for a TV series. The show consisted of actors of the highest caliber. While somebody like Peter Dinklage has frequently won awards, the likes of Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke have gone on to sign big assignments even after the show. The younger members of the cast, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner too have gone on to become huge stars.
For any other show to pull off such a cast it will have to match the magnitude of Thrones. The star cast that Gold, Sterne, and Stronge managed to get in for the show is unlikely to be matched by another show soon.
Well, how about that? Game of Thrones has continued its award-winning run. Do you think it is going to continue winning awards at Directors Guild Awards and Writers Guild of America Awards scheduled on Saturday? Let us know in the comments below!
