The 71st annual Primetime Emmy Awards are scheduled to take place this Sunday, September 22, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. While Game of Thrones is in an ideal position to take home several statuettes, the HBO series already has quite a few awards under its belt.
You see, the 2019 Creative Arts Emmy Awards took place over the weekend. (This particular ceremony honors the talent behind the camera, whereas the primetime broadcast focuses on the actors.)
During the awards show, GoT won ten—we repeat, ten—Emmy Awards for the show’s eighth (and final) season, making it the most decorated series.
Winning categories include Outstanding Special Visual Effects, Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes, Outstanding Makeup for a Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic), Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Drama Series, Outstanding Main Title Design, Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series, Outstanding Music Composition for a Series, Outstanding Sound Mixing (One Hour Series), Outstanding Picture Editing (Single-Camera Drama) and Outstanding Sound Editing (One Hour Series).
