After taking away 10 Emmys at the Creative Arts Emmys, Game of Thrones now has a total of 57 wins for Emmys overall over the years. It will add to those wins tonight. So that means it’s only behind Saturday Night Live in total Emmy wins, and SNL has had 44 years compared to Game of Thrones.
Tonight, Game of Thrones could add up to seven more Emmy awards, for a total of 17 if it takes every category away on Sunday. If it won 17, it would beat John Adams for the most Emmys won by a single program in one year. John Adams won 13 in 2008.
Game of Thrones has already taken away a lot of Emmys in the past, including Best Drama Series in 2018, 2016, and 2015 (making it a strong contender to win again this year.) Peter Dinklage won Best Supporting Actor in 2011, 2015, and 2018. The show has also won Best Drama Direct in 2015 and 2016, Best Drama Writing in 2015 and 2016, Best Drama Casting in 2015, 2016 and 2019, Best Costumes in 2012 and 2014, Best Costumes for a Period/Fantasy in 2016, Best Costumes in Fantasy/Sci-fi for 2018, Best Main Title Design also in 2011, Best Makeup Non-Prosthetic for five years, Best Makeup Prosthetic for three, Best Music Composition also in 2018, and much more. The show is a powerhouse in wins and will likely continue that streak tonight.
