HBO’s Game of Thrones season eight won Outstanding Drama Series at the 2019 Emmy Awards.
While the final season of Game of Thrones might’ve divided fans and critics, it managed to snag the Outstanding Drama award at the 2019 Emmys. The HBO show was up against Better Call Saul, Killing Eve, Bodyguard, Ozark, Pose, Succession and This Is Us, but Game of Thrones came out on top. Given the cinematic scale of the final season, it isn’t surprising that HBO’s Game of Thrones took home the big prize.
HBO’s Game of Thrones also snagged another award thanks to Peter Dinklage. His role as Tyrion Lannister earned him Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, his fourth time winning the award. He’s been a fan favourite since Game of Thrones began, so it’s great to see him rewarded once more. The show didn’t quite clean up all the awards as it usually does, with leading stars Kit Harrington and Emilia Clarke both losing out on Outstanding Actor and Actress respectively. However, Game of Thrones won a total of 12 Emmys for its eighth and final season.
