Game of Thrones Reclaims Emmys Crown As Best Drama

HBO’s hit Game of Thrones reclaimed the title of Best Drama Series Monday at the 70th Emmy Awards, marking the third win in the category for the fantasy series. The show previously won the award in 2015 and 2016, but lost to the “usurper” The Handmaid’s Tale in 2017.

Showrunner David Benioff accepted the award, saying, “Writing for these actors behind us is the honor of a lifetime but we didn’t invent these characters, that was George R. R. Martin. The show could not be without the mad genius of George. Thank you for letting us take care of your people.”

Fellow showrunner D. B. Weiss chimed in, saying, “The show is only as good as the people who make it, and we are blessed and lucky to have the greatest cast, the greatest crew and the greatest team of producers led by the inimitable Bernie Caulfield. This is the woman who actually makes the show, the rest of us, the rest of us order lunch.”
