Emmy Awards 2019: Here’s who took the trophy home


71st Primetime Emmy Awards, the ceremony which recognises excellence in television, took place in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

Game of Thrones wrapped up its run with an Emmy for best drama series. The series headed into Emmy’s night as the most nominated drama of all time with a record 32 nominations, and it only needed a couple of wins to beat its old record. Instead, it lost far more categories than it won, and only managed a tie.

The final season of Game of Thrones already won 10 Creative Arts Emmys (cinematography, sound, VFX, stunts, among others) putting it only two short of the old record of 12 Emmys (also set by Game of Thrones). Those three wins to beat the record needed to come out of a pool of 14 nominations across seven drama categories. Well, it won two.

Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Killing Eve star Jodie Comer were among the big British winners at this year’s Emmy Awards.
