Game of Thrones still keeps the record for most Emmy wins in a year



A glimpse at the first ever official Iron Throne made in 1996

Game of Thrones is the most awarded show in television history. The show set a record for winning the highest number of Primetime Emmy Awards for a series in a single year in 2015, winning 12 out of 24 nominations. Till date no other show has come close to that record.

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards were held on 20th September 2020. The ceremony was organized virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Canadian sitcom Schitt’s Creek became the first comedy series to win all seven major awards in a single year. The comedy series won the most number of awards for the year 2020.


Schitt’s Creek’s Dan Levy became the first person to win an award in all four major disciplines in a single year. He acted as the producer, actor, director, and writer for the series. The HBO drama Succession and limited series Watchmen won four awards each.

Zendaya became the youngest actress to win an Emmy in the Best Actress in the Drama Series category for HBO’s Euphoria. HBO led the list of networks with most wins, 30. Netflix was second with 21.

In a post-Emmy interview with Deadline, HBO President Casey Bloys said he was thrilled with the results. He said, “It’s especially nice because there was a question how HBO would do. This is a pretty good way to answer that question.”

He also confirmed the Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon is scheduled for release in 2022. Therefore the year 2022 might see a return of the Game of Thrones franchise back in Emmy contention. Game of Thrones has won 59 Emmy awards and 160 nominations since 2011.

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon adds four new characters




Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving fast with its production, and we can expect a spring release in 2022. Most of the main characters have been cast, and HBO has officially declared who’s playing who in the much-awaited prequel. With set pictures leaking quite often on the internet, the fans are getting a glimpse of more cast members in action. Recently, four new characters were added to the acting roster, according to the latest rumours.

As reported by the Redanian Intelligence, the following members are the latest addition to House of The Dragon:

Rosa Escoda as a young Mysaria – Mysaria, whose older version is played by Sonoya Mizuno, is one of several characters portrayed by two actors to accommodate the decade-spanning events of the series. She is a lowlife dancer who quickly rises in ranks after becoming Daemon Targaryen’s love interest.

Edward Rowe as Ser Howland Sharp – A knight of House Sharp from the Iron Islands.

Bijan Daneshmand as The Priest – There’s not much information yet, but we’re hoping for him to be a red priest, so we can have a look at the backstory of the Lord of the light.

Nina Barker-Francis as Jayne – No additional information about her character as well, hopefully, we’ll get more news in future.
