Game of Thrones has gone into the history books for being the first fictional series to win the highest number of Emmy Awards.
The HBO fantasy drama was victorious in three award sections during the ceremony held on Sunday.
The fiction-film currently brags of 38 awards in total, meaning it has surpassed the previous 37 record held by Frasier. It went ahead to prove that as much as it is on its 6th series, it is yet to lose any of the momentum it began with in 2011.
Cast and Creators win big
Within the best script and best drama categories, the Game of Thrones cast and creators placed 12 wins under their belt.
Game of Thrones is liked worldwide, with it reaching more audience than even what the past HBO’s biggest drama – Sopranos- had held.
The sixth season is based on George RR Martin’s books and has gone ahead to earn over 25.1 million viewers in the United States. Most of the fans are out to see the fate of Jon Snow.
In the UK, the latest season was the most popular programme to be broadcast on Sky Atlantic, drawing an average audience of 5m.
Zai Bennettt, Sky Atlantic director, recently talked of the show’s popularity describing it as “insane.”
The show which is expected to conclude in 2018 has been commissioned to run two more seasons. The sixth season was praised more due to the fact that it elevated the Westeros women to power as well as dominance. Daenerys marching to battle with the Dothraki; Cersei gets to sit on the Iron Throne; Sansa Stark gets to sit beside her ruling brothers in the North and Arya begins a revenge mission.
Sansa – the real life Sophie Turner – suggested that Game of Thrones may turn out to be dominant till next year.
She said: I was actually speechless, this season is unbelievable and I think fans are going to be really satisfied. It’s crazy.”
