HBO's hit series Game of Thrones has bested quite a number of shows. But more importantly, it seems to keep improving, as it has bested its own record once again.
The winners of the Creative Arts Emmys have been announced, and HBO's original series has come out as the biggest winner of them all. Bagging 9 honors for the 2016 Creative Arts Emmy Awards, Game of Thrones led the list of shows that were nominated and awarded winners.
Overall at the Emmy's, Game of Thrones has performed spectacularly as it had received 23 Emmy nominations, which boosts its rep over other shows to date.
Game of Thrones won in the following areas, and it should be noted that it did well by its own standards from last year:
> Casting for a Drama Series
> Production Design for a Narrative Contemporary or Fantasy Program
> Costumes for a Period/Fantasy Series, Limited Series or Movie
> Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series ("Battle of the Bastards" episode)
> Makeup for a Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic for "Battle of the Bastards")
> Prosthetic Makeup for a Series, Limited Series, Movie or Special ("The Door")
> Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series ("Battle of the Bastards")
> Special Visual Effects ("Battle of the Bastards")
> Stunt Coordination for a Drama Series, Limited Series or Movie
It's worth mentioning that at the Creative Arts Emmys, Game of Thrones was nominated for the following awards:
> Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series (Max von Sydow)
> Hairstyling for a single-camera series ("The Door" episode)
> Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series ("Home" episode)
> Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series ("Oathbreaker" episode)
> Interactive Program for Game of Thrones Main Titles 360 Experience with Facebook/Oculus
> Sound Editing for a Series ("The Door")
There's still the Primetime Emmy Awards coming up. The Creative Arts Emmys was held for two nights over the weekend. As far as HBO is concerned, Game of Thrones is the main meat of the show, but that doesn't mean it was the only series from the company that got some recognition.
It also landed some wins in Outstanding Writing, Picture Editing, Casting, and Sound Mixing for various shows, which totaled in 16 Creative Arts Emmys, putting it ahead of the networks for the two nights.
Game of Thrones is, without a doubt, one of the most anticipated shows. And with its next season expected to be a big blowout, maybe HBO and Game of Thrones will out-award itself next year once more.
