The recently concluded Creative Arts Emmy Awards was just the beginning for Game of Thrones. During the main night, the show had once again proven why fans continue to follow the show regularly and passionately after six seasons.

To date, Game of Thrones now holds the record for the most number of Emmys for any fictional series. According to BBC, the HBO Original managed to nab a couple more awards for the Sunday ceremony, these include the following categories:

> Best Drama Series
> Best Production Design for Narrative or Contemporary Program
> Casting for a Drama Series, Costumes for a Limited Series in Fantasy
> Directing for a Drama Series Make-up for a Single-Camera Series
> Sound Mixing for Comedy/Drama Series
> Special Visual Effects
> Stunt Coordination for Drama
> Writing for Drama

That doesn't even include the many notable nominations for the show. After Sunday's ceremony, Game of Thrones now holds 38 wins, topping Frasier's previous 37-award streak.

At the Emmy's, Mother of Dragons Emilia Clarke, who plays the role of Dany, spoke with LA Times and gave some updates on the shoot that they're doing for Game of Thrones season 7.

Even with only two seasons left—each with fewer episodes—it seems that Game of Thrones is far from slowing its pace.

"I'm doing the show now. I'm not thinking about that. It's winding down, but I'm working. It's insane… You can expect less people."

What this means, Clarke didn't really explain. But as far as numbers go, it seems that her statement contradicts previous reports. Recently, it was spotted that the show is hiring more people to be part of Dany's fleet. And a couple of Game of Thronesactors have been spotted in Belfast, presumably for shooting.


Of course, it's also possible that Dany is hinting that there will be fewer people—because of a lot of deaths? There's a war coming, and so is winter, so we wouldn't be surprised if the show becomes insane because of this development.

Game of Thrones season 7 will be back in 2017.
