Game of Thrones wins award for Outstanding Drama

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards were announced on September 18, 2018 at the Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles, California, United States. The awards hosted by comedians Michael Che and Colin Jost.

For the first time in almost 20 years, HBO didn’t dominate the Emmy Awards. The channel had to settle for a tie with Netflix with 23 awards each. After being ineligible for the 2017 Emmy awards, the popular drama series Game of Thrones was the most nominated programme in this year’s edition with a total of 22 nominations. It was followed by Westworld with 21 nominations and the Handmaid's Tale with 20 nominations.

HBO’s Game of Thrones also took home the biggest award of the event, the award for Outstanding Drama Series. On the other hand, Netflix's drama series ‘The Crown’ won two key awards - Outstanding Lead Actress in a drama series for Claire Foy and Outstanding Directing for drama series, for Stephen Daldry.

About Primetime Emmy Awards

  70th Primetime Emmy Awards: Full list of winnersThe Primetime Emmy Award is an American award bestowed by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

It is given in recognition of excellence in American primetime television programming. It was first presented in 1949.

The award was originally referred to as simply the Emmy Awards until the first Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies were held in the 1970s. The word prime time was added to distinguish between the two.

The awards are considered the television equivalent to the Academy Awards (film), Grammy Awards (music), and Tony Awards (theatre).

The awards are divided into three categories: the Primetime Emmy Awards for television performance, the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards, and the Primetime Engineering Emmy Awards.
