Game Of Thrones' tipped to make Emmys history
Game of Thrones has made TV history by becoming the most decorated fictional show at the Emmy Awards since the event began in 1949. The fantasy drama, based on George RR Martin's novels, was named best drama series, while also picking up honours for outstanding writing and directing. At this year's bash in Los Angeles, the drama clinched 12 awards, included another nine in technical categories. The haul takes its overall total to 38 winnings, beating Frasier's previous record of 37. David Benioff, the showrunner of GoT, said: “We love Frasier and he had a long run and we're sure someone will come along and take it from us. We just hope it doesn't happen until we're all dead.” Despite three of the drama's stars, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke and Maisie Williams being hotly tipped in the supporting actress category, the show missed out in the acting categories. The award went to Dame Maggie Smith, for her performance as the Dowager Countess Violet Crawley in the final series of Downton Abbey. List of winners: Drama Series Game Of Thrones Comedy Series Veep Lead Actress in a Drama Series Tatiana Maslany as Sarah, Alison, Cosima, Helena, Rachel and MK on Orphan Black Lead Actor in a Drama Series Rami Malek as Elliot on Mr. Robot Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Ben Mendelsohn as Danny Rayburn on Bloodline Directing for a Drama Series Game of Thrones (Episode: "Battle of the Bastards"), Directed by Miguel Sapochnik Supporting Actress in a Drama Series Maggie Smith as Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham on Downton Abbey Writing for a Drama Series Game of Thrones (Episode: "Battle of the Bastards"), Written by David Benioff and D.
