Game of Thrones Wins Best Drama at the Emmys
It’s one of the biggest upsets of the year, but fans of Game of Thrones won’t be too unhappy. The HBO fantasy series scooped the gong for Outstanding Drama Series over the favoured Mad Men at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards. It wasn’t all bad for the period drama, though, as seven-time nominee Jon Hamm finally took home the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series award.
Other winners include Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage, who secured Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for a second time, and Viola Davis, who is the first black actress to win the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
Game of Thrones took home the most gold with a record 12 awards. See the full list of winners and losers here.
