Game of Throne’s takes home record Emmys.
Last night, the 68th annual Emmy Awards took place and Game of Thrones took home record wins.
The HBO drama took home three awards on Sunday evening, including the big one for best outstanding drama series. The show set a total record amount of Emmys at 38, with knocked off previous victor, Fraser, with a record of 37 Emmys in total.
As for the Brits, Dame Maggie Smith has done it yet again, bagging an award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in Downton Abbey. This is her third Emmy for her role as Violet Crawley in Downton Abbey, but she has never actually attended the ceremony in person. So, on Sunday, host Jimmy Kimmel jokes: “We’re not mailing this to her. Maggie, if you want this, it will be in the lost and found.”
Among some of the winners was the Danish director, Susana Bier of BBC spy thriller, starring Tom Hiddleston as The Nigh Manager.
