Game of Thrones walked away with one of the biggest awards from the Emmys, “Outstanding Drama Series”. Actor Peter Dinklage from the show also won “Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series”. The show had 32 total nominations across several categories. This is the most amount of nominations that any show has ever had in a single year throughout the history of the Emmy awards, according to Vox.

“I think Game of Thrones should have won all of its nominations,” said senior Isa Chavez.

Another notable winner was Fleabag, winning two of its four nominations, including “Outstanding Comedy Series”. This was a surprise win for “Fleabag”, as many were placing their bets on “Veep” for this category. This was the first year that Fleabag has been nominated for any awards.

“I was so happy when Fleabag won for best comedy series, and when Bill Hader won best actor in a comedy series,” said senior Claire Suchy.

Newcomer to the Emmy scene, Schitt’s Creek, walked away with no awards, but a strong showing with three nominations for its Emmys debut.
