Emmys cast

Presenting at the 2019 Emmys

The 2019 Emmy Awards were broadcast live tonight from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles., and the cast of Game of Thrones was out in force as usual! GoT racked up a record-breaking 32 nominations this year for the final season, and having picked up 10 wins already at the Creative Arts Emmy ceremony last Sunday, was looking to add more to that total. GoT competed in seven categories tonight, with even more nominations than that, thanks to multiple nods in several areas. Ultimately Game of Thrones came home with the biggest prize of all, Outstanding Drama Series, while star Peter Dinklage won an incredible fourth Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Tyrion Lannister. With those awards, the final Emmy total for Game of Thrones season 8 stands at 12.

In addition to the wins, the nominated actors from the GoT cast presented the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie to actress Patricia Arquette (The Act) with Dinklage reading the winning name.
