Game of Thrones creates history, leads 71st Emmy Awards with 32 nominations

Fantasy drama Game of Thrones has earned 32 nominations for the 71st Emmy Awards, leading HBO back to dominance over Netflix, the streaming service that bumped it last year from atop the increasingly crowded television heap. The record was previously held by NYPD Blue, which scored 26 nominations in 1994. Game of Thrones dominated in the drama categories, with fellow HBO shows Barry and Veep sweeping the comedy categories in the 2019 Emmy Awards nominations. A three-time winner for best drama, Game of Thrones is the favorite to win the category once again when the Emmy envelopes are unsealed at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on September 22.

If Game of Thrones defends its best drama series title and claims a fourth trophy, it will join the quartet of most-honored dramas that includes Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law, The West Wing and Mad Men.

Series star Emilia Clarke’s decision to seek the best actress nomination after a series of supporting actress bids paid off. She’s competing in a category that’s notable for its diversity, including past winner Viola Davis for How to Get Away with Murder and repeat nominee Sandra Oh for Killing Eve, who has a second chance to become the first actress of Asian descent to win the trophy.

Over its full eight seasons, Game of Thrones has nabbed 161 nominations overall. In addition to drama series, Game of Thrones just about dominated the drama acting categories. It scored four nominations for supporting actress in a drama series (Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams) and three nominations in supporting actor (Alfie Allen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage). Carice van Houten was recognized in guest actress, and Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington also scored their first nominations in the lead categories, having previously been nominated in supporting.
