Fans had mixed reactions to the Emmy Award for Best Drama going to the final season of Game of Thrones.
The final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones was met with predominantly negative reactions from fans, with many believing the quality of the writing had diminished significantly compared to the earlier years. Despite the negative response, Game of Thrones season 8 earned a record-breaking 32 nominations at the 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards, including a Best Writing nod for the divisive series finale and Best Drama.
Last night, the 2019 Emmy Awards ceremony concluded with Game of Thrones season 8 winning the Best Drama award and fans responded by taking to Twitter to express just how much they feel the series is undeserving of this victory. Of course, not everyone was displeased, as a handful of fans took time to congratulate the Game of Thrones team on their win.

It’s a shame the 8th season was horrendous and ruined any work put in before it.

For what? A mediocre season at BEST? It received accolades for the past, deservedly, but NOT for this season.

Um…well it shouldn't have and you know it. Season 8 was an abomination. The only one who deserved it was Emilia Clarke but lost. Despite the butchering of her character she delivered and outshined everyone else.

The worst season wins best drama in a category that all the other shows were better in. Holy hell what the actual fuck.
