Game of Thrones reached an amazing achievement at last night’s Emmy Awards, by breaking the record for most Emmy’s ever won by a fictional series.
The fantasy drama took home three gong’s at last night’s ceremony including the coveted award for best drama series, and others for outstanding writing and directing.
Game of Thrones, which was filmed in Northern Ireland, has now won 38 Emmy’s collectively and has broken the record for most awarded narrative show in Emmy history. It beat out Fraiser which had gathered 37 gongs.
Irish actor Liam Cunningham stars in the series and took to social media yesterday ahead of the ceremony to wish the cast and crew the best of luck, although he was not nominated himself.
On Twitter he wrote, “Well done to all the nominees at the #Emmys2016. I have everything crossed for my #GameOfThrones homies. Good luck!”
