Earlier Sunday, after snagging Writing and Directing Emmys, the multi-nominated show based on George R.R. Martin’s books matched the previous record hold of Frasier with 37 overall wins. This Best Drama win also now ties Game Of Thrones with its Emmy haul of 2015, which saw trophies for Peter Dinklage in the Best Supporting category and more.

The night’s not over yet but with 37 total wins, Game of Thrones has already matched the all time Emmy record tonight for a scripted series.


The big benchmark for the HBO blockbuster at the 68th Primetime Emmy caps an increasingly historic night that saw the David Benioff and D.B. Weiss executive produced show also scored an Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series for the EPs and and Outstanding Directing For A Drama Series for Miguel Sapochnik earlier tonight. In the latter category, Game Of Thrones was nominated in two of the six slots. The series has won 11 Emmys this year, including the duo tonight.

Already the top winning drama in Emmy history, Sunday’s victories makes GoTnow the top winning scripted show ever from the TV Academy shindig and now tied for the top winning primetime scripted show ever as it matched the trophies Frasier took home in its 1993 – 2004 run.

“We have the best cast that I think ever has been assembled,” executive producer David Benioff as Game Of Thrones took the Outstanding Drama Series for the second year in a row. The HBO blockbuster now is the most awarded scripted series in Emmy history with 38 wins.
