Game of Thrones wins big at the Creative Arts Emmys
Game of Thrones has dominated at the Creative Emmy Awards over the weekend.
The popular fantasy hit received a whopping 23 Emmy nods when nominations were announced in July, including 15 for its creative team.
Fittingly, Game of Thrones took home an impressive nine of the Creative Emmy Awards on offer – more than any other series on the night. Thrones even beat last year’s tally of eight Creative Emmy Awards.
It won awards for casting in a drama series; production design for a narrative contemporary or fantasy program; costumes for a period/fantasy series; single-camera picture editing for a drama series; makeup for a single-camera series (non-prosthetic); prosthetic makeup for a series, limited series, movie or special; sound mixing for a comedy or drama series; special visual effects; and stunt coordination for a drama series, limited series or movie.
The news bodes well for the oncoming Primetime Emmy Awards, which will take place next Sunday and where Game of Thrones has eight additional chances to win.
The series has dominated the supporting actor and actress categories at the awards, as a result of not having a single protagonist but a large supporting ensemble. Series stars Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey as well as first-time nominations for Kit Harington and Maisie Williams have all received supporting actor nods.
Game of Thrones also has a guest actor nomination for Max Von Sydow as the Three-Eyed-Raven.
