It was an end of an era when the long-running hit series Game of Thrones came to end but now the cast has their eyes on some Emmys, 32 to be exact.
The HBO drama walked away with double-digit Emmy nominations on Tuesday (16.07.19), setting a new record for most nominations earned in a single year by any drama series.
This year’s nominations included one for best drama and several individual nominations for cast members including Kit Harrington alias Jon Snow, Emilia Clarke alias Sansa Stark, Lena Headey alias Cersei Lannister, Sophie Turner alias Daenerys Targaryen, Maisie Williams alias Arya Stark and Gwendoline Christie.
This is the first time four actresses from the same drama have been nominated in the supporting actress category, according to GoldDerby.
To date, the fantasy series has won 47 Emmys and been nominated 161 times, including this year’s nominations. It is currently the most Emmy-winning primetime series in history.
71st Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards are scheduled to be held on the 15th of September 2019 at the Microsoft Center in Los Angeles, California at 3 am East African Time.
The ‘Game of Thrones’ series finale aired in May, to mixed reviews as reported by The Sauce.
