GRRM got the best birthday present ever as he witnessed Game of Thrones breaking an all-time Emmy record for most wins (12) for a show in a single year. Earlier record was held by West Wing that won 9 awards in 2000.
Game of Thrones won the Outstanding Drama Series award and showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss also won the award for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, for the Season 5 finale Mother’s Mercy.
Veteran GOT director David Nutter won his second Outstanding Direction for a Drama Series award. Show also won 8 creative Emmys last week.
Peter Dinklage also won his second Emmy in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category. Excerpts from his speech:
“I wasn’t prepared at all. I was even chewing. The other actors in my category – I’m awed. We’re only as good as our writers, and we have the greatest writers. Lena Headey – you’re my inspiration, my scene partner. And our cast – which is thousands of people!”
