HBO’s “Game of Thrones” has now won more Emmy awards than any other drama in television history.
The big-budget fantasy series nabbed nine awards at the 2016 Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday, bringing its total to 35 honors – far above both “The West Wing” and “Hill Street Blues” which held the previous record at 26 each.
The total will likely go higher when the live ceremony airs on September 18th, if it can garner three more wins it will break the 37 Emmy record held by “Frasier” for the most-awarded scripted show in Emmy history.
“Saturday Night Live” still holds the top spot as the most award-winning show with 48 wins. Thrones’ “Battle of the Bastards” episode won four of the nine awards it took home on the weekend.
