HBO’s fantasy hit ‘Game of Thrones’ has shattered an all-time Emmy Awards record with its ‘Outstanding Drama Series’ win.

The TV series now holds the record for most Emmy wins in a single year with 12 awards, including the show’s wins at the Creative Arts Emmys, which were held last weekend.

Martin gained nods, were outstanding drama series, best supporting actor- Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister, and best supporting actress- Lena Heady, who portrays Cersei Lannister, and Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen.
