2019 Emmy Awards: 'Game Of Thrones' And Peter Dinklage Go Out In A Blaze Of Glory By Four-Peting (Complete Winners List)

The last season was probably not the best, but the Television Academy of Arts and Sciences felt that the last chapter of ‘Game of Thrones’ was the Outstanding Drama Series of the year, and the HBO phenomenon took home its fourth Emmy win in this category, while breakout star Peter Dinklage, likewise, won his fourth Outstanding Supporting Actor Emmy for his role as Tyrion Lannister.  He actually beat out his co-stars Alfie Allen and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau!

For ‘GoT’, this ties the record for most wins for Outstanding Drama Series, with ‘Mad Men’, ‘Hill Street Blues’, ‘L.A. Law’, and ‘The West Wing’. (NY Daily News)  But for Dinklage, this set an all-time record.  He was previously tied with ‘Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul with three each. (TV Guide)

Otherwise, there were a few upsets, as ‘GoT’ and various actors and creatives were up for many more accolades, which went to others.  Kit Harington lost in the Outstanding Actor Drama category to Billy Porter, the star of FX’s ‘Pose’, while, ‘Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer snatched the Outstanding Actress trophy from Emilia Clarke.

There were a mind-boggling (and record-setting) four ‘GoT’ stars up for Outstanding Supporting Actress, Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams, but all four (along with ‘Killing Eve’s Fiona Shaw) were bested by Julia Garner, for her role on ‘Ozark’.

Prior to the big telecast, ‘Game of Thrones’ had already won ten Emmys at the Creative Emmy ceremony, held last weekend, for Sound Editing (One Hour Series) for “The Long Night,” Visual Effects for “The Bells,” Costumes (Fantasy/Sci-Fi) for “The Bells,” Makeup (Single-Camera, Non-Prosthetic) for “The Long Night,” Stunt Coordination (Drama/Movie/Limited), Main Title Design, Music Composition (Series) for “The Long Night,” Drama Casting, Sound Mixing (One Hour Series) for “The Long Night,” and Picture Editing (Single-Camera Drama) for “The Long Night.”

The genre shows did pretty well at the Creative Arts ceremony, but there wasn’t much more representation at the big show, with the exception of ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ which won Outstanding Television Movie.

Other genre shows that took home Creative Emmys include: ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ for Creative Achievement in Interactive Media; ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ for Drama Guest Actress for Cherry Jones, Drama Guest Actor for Bradley Whitford, and Production Design (Narrative Contemporary, One Hour or More) for “Holly”; ‘Love, Death and Robots’ for Short Form Animated Program for “The Witness”; ‘Russian Doll’ for Production Design (Narrative Half-Hour) for “Nothing in This World is Easy,” Costumes (Contemporary) for “Superiority Complex,” and Cinematography (Single-Camera, Half-Hour) for “Ariadne”; and ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ for Prosthetic Makeup for “If Memory Serves.”
