Every Emmy Award Game of Thrones Has Ever Won
The fantasy drama has snagged more Emmy Awards than any other series.
Whether the series finale of Game of Thrones left you smiling or in tears (and let's be honest, it was most likely the latter), the Academy has made up its mind over the controversial last season. The verdict? Emmys galore.
Between last week's Creative Arts Emmys and tonight's Primetime ceremony, Game of Thrones received a total of 12 Emmys for its eighth and final season. The fantasy drama also holds the record for the most Emmy wins of any fictional series.
Below, we've rounded up the complete list of Emmys awarded to the HBO show, from its earthshaking 2011 inception to its fiery 2019 denouement.
Alexander Skarsgard - HBO's Emmys After Party!
Alexander Skarsgard suits up for HBO’s After Party following the 2012 Emmy Awards at the Pacific Design Center on Sunday (September 23) in West Hollywood, Calif.
The 36-year-old True Blood actor was joined at the event by Kate Walsh, Chloe Sevigny, Bridesmaids actress Ellie Kemper, and Lucy Liu, in an Atelier Versace gown, Ofira jewelry, and a Jimmy Choo bag and shoes.
The night before, Alexander was spotted all smiles leaving the Chateau Marmont after a night out at the celeb hot spot.

Inside the Emmys After-Parties: All the Details From the Star-Studded Post-Show Events—See the Pics!Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic
Sure, the Emmy Awards are a huge deal, but let's be honest: We're might be more interested in what takes place after the awards show than what goes on during it.
Following the feat fest at the Microsoft Theater, celebrities made their way to HBO, Comedy Central, Fox and more after-parties where they snacked, drank and congratulated each other on their wins. The losers, on the other hand, might have just enjoyed each other's company and the free food. So, who went where and what did they do? We have the scoop.
Lady Gaga arrived at Fox's party at around 8:30 p.m. where she hung out with Taraji P. Henson and about 10 other people. They were definitely getting their party on as the Empire star took a shot of tequila shortly after Gaga left to hang out with Emma Roberts and the Scream Queens table.
Some of the Modern Family cast, including Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sarah Hyland and Eric Stonestreet, also hung out together. It was a real family affair!
Amy Schumer also attended Fox's soiree, but made sure to show up in style. The Emmy-winner wore flats (comfort over everything) and sat in a corner booth for about 45 minutes while enjoying some appetizers.
The HBO after-party saw its usual cast of characters, including Peter Dinklage, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Sophie Turner, Julianne Hough, Derek Hough, Frances McDormand and many, many more. There was also a bit of a reunion for the cast of The Office! Angela Kinsey, Brian Baumgartner and Jenna Fischer all caught up with each other and spent the even chatting away, an eyewitness tells E! News. Oh to be a fly on that wall.
According to our source, Dreyfus spent a good portion of the night dancing her way through the party, which doesn't surprise us because Veep absolutely swept at the Emmys.
Inside the Emmys: All the Dish from TV Guide's After-party!
The TV Guide after-Emmy party at Hollywood hot spot Les Deux was somewhat of a "surprise" party. While guests were excited to be entertained by Grammy winner John Legend, no one (save for an in-the-know few) was prepared for Kanye West to then take the stage. When the rap superstar's voice boomed over the sound system, partygoers literally flooded inside the tent to grab a glimpse. But the quick sprint was well worth it, especially when Legend returned to the stage to perform "Gold Digger" alongside West. If West's surprise performance wasn't enough to make partygoers' jaws drop, the night was far from over. Sandra Oh proved she knows how to have a good time, truly getting down to rap music with Grey's Anatomy's costar
The TV Guide after-Emmy party at Hollywood hot spot Les Deux was somewhat of a "surprise" party.

When the rap superstar's voice boomed over the sound system, partygoers literally flooded inside the tent to grab a glimpse. But the quick sprint was well worth it, especially when Legend returned to the stage to perform "Gold Digger" alongside West.
If West's surprise performance wasn't enough to make partygoers' jaws drop, the night was far from over. Sandra Oh proved she knows how to have a good time, truly getting down to rap music with Grey's Anatomy's costar Eric Dane and his wife Rebecca Gayheart. Even celebrities seemed beside themselves when they realized that Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx was in the house, holding court in a corner booth. But even still, the ohmigod moments weren't over. When Band from TV took the stage at 12:25 am/PT, everyone knew it would be a rocking time. However, few expected Teri Hatcher to join Greg Grunberg, Hugh Laurie, Bonnie Somerville, James Denton and Bob Guiney on stage and sing Little Big Town's hit "Leave the Pieces." Even come 2 am, the party was still going strong.
Here's a rundown of some of the starry sightings and sound bites:
Melinda Clarke wore a Lloyd Klein dress that she had kept in her closet for a long, long time until she lost five pounds and felt good about wearing it. At 10:22 pm, Singing Bee and TV Guide Network host Joey Fatone did a mad dash across the red carpet saying he'd come back and do interviews but right now he needs a restroom — badly. Later, he and karaoke-show rival Wayne Brady sang with Band from TV…. Teri Hatcher arrived at 10:35, catching up with Blair Underwood as she entered. He told her they hadn't seen each other since they did The Tonight Show, right before Desperate Housewives exploded. Teri told us how excited she was to be performing later….
Lauren "LC" Conrad, Whitney and some of the other Hills hotties made camp on a couch for most of the night. Meanwhile, Paris Hilton sightings created a stir among partygoers…. At 10:45, Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon walked the wrong way on the red carpet hand in hand, which is ironic because they never "entered". Shortly thereafter, Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell also walked the carpet the wrong way, also having never entered. Rebecca walked with her shoes off and put them back on after her interview with TV Guide Network. They then headed out, saying they had to work at 4 in the morning. But they did stop to say hello to Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery on their way off the carpet….
Extra's Mario Lopez left early because he wasn't feeling well. He told his crew he'd maybe eaten some bad fish, but still did over 22 interviews — all of which included a sip of champagne — until he finally headed home…. Joy Lauren and Andrea Bowen from Housewives were spied standing on one of the couches in the tent bouncing up and down to Kanye West's performance of "Gold Digger"…. The cast of Grey's arrived at 11:26: Sara Ramirez, Eric Dane with wife Rebecca Gayheart, Justin Chambers and his wife, T.R. Knight, and Sandra Oh….
Ali Larter, dressed in Reem Acra, huddled under a heat lamp with her beau…. 30 Rock's Jane Krakowski and Judah Friedlander posed with pals for one of the novelty TV Guide covers that were being photographed and composed on the fly by a team of computer whizzes…. Heroes boss Tim Kring sidled up to a bar, shot of tequila in hand, enjoying the "super" gala…. The Office's Melora Hardin, after some impressive barefoot dancing, closed out the night and the soiree with some playful mugging in the TV Guide photo booth.

Sofia Vergara Shakes It On The Dance Floor At The Emmys After-Party (VIDEO)
"Modern Family" star Sofia Vergara celebrated her series' big win for Best Comedy at the 64th annual Emmy awards by shaking it on the dance floor.
The 40-year-old actress showed off her best dance moves at the HBO Emmy Party at the Pacific Design Center, and TMZ caught her on camera with all the "incredible jiggly footage."
At around 1 a.m. the Colombian actress looked like she didn't have a care in the world and likely forgot that just hours earlier she barely avoided a huge wardrobe malfunction.
Vergara looked stunning in a turquoise Zuhair Murad dress that had her looking like a mermaid on the red carpet, but the dress split just 20 minutes before the "Modern Family" cast had to take the stage to accept their big award.
“Yes. This happend [sic] 20 min before we won. Jajajajja. I luv my life. " the actress tweeted from her WhoSay account along with a NSFW image of the back of her dress, which had split open, exposing her derrière.
Luckily the dress broke before the sexy star had to take the stage, since she was able to turn to her emergency team to stitch it up:
"20 min Modern Family won!! Dress malfuncion . Thank you emergency team. " she wrote along with a photo of herself being sewn back into the dress.
Tea Tuesday: Stilton and Fig Tarts for Your Tea or Emmy Table
The new Diamond Jubilee Salon at Fortnum & Mason in central London. Click to reserve.
Welcome to Tea Tuesday, my weekly tribute to the art of having tea. As Henry James once said: “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”
I host Tea Tuesday each week, a virtual tea party which was inspired by Christine, a follower who lives in France, who was curious about English tea traditions after watching a few episodes of Downton Abbey. The British may have failed miserably in other culinary areas, but they excel in the tea ritual. Join me every Tuesday as I dish on Downton Abbey, the Royal Family, UK tourism and other topical tea issues one might discuss at tea, served up with a tea treat recipe with a history.
My Online Guide to the Tea Ritual
Many of you will be traveling to the UK and will likely have “afternoon tea” on your list. To help avoid disappointment (there is a difference between afternoon and high tea), I have created a handy guide to help you enjoy the experience: Downton Abbey Cooks Online Guide to Afternoon Tea. The guide includes:
- The history of Tea in England
- Tea Lingo
- The difference between Afternoon and High Tea
- Proper tea etiquette
The guide also includes tips and recipes to host your own tea party, perhaps to gather friends to watch your favorite Downton Abbey episode:
- How to make a proper cup of tea
- Sweet and Savoury tea recipes, including a great scone recipe you can adapt many ways.
- How to build a tea service on a budget.
After weeks of no news gossip front, some great news this week:
- PBS confirmed that Season 3 starts January 6th.
- Emmy nominations were announced last Tuesday, and Downton Abbey received 16 nominations including best drama, as well as nods for Hugh Bonneville (Lord Grantham) and Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary) in the lead actor and actress categories, and supporting nominations for Joanne Froggatt (Anna), Maggie Smith (Dowager Countess), Jim Carter (Mr. Carson) and Brendan Coyle (John Bates). As the Daily Beast’s critic Jace Lacob observed on Twitter: “It seems as though the entire casts of Downton Abbey… have been nominated.”
- Check out my Online Guide for ideas on what to serve when hosting fellow fans to a Downton themed bash to watch the Emmys on Sept. 23.
- Cast members appeared for a Downton Abbey event hosted by the Television Critics Association Event on Saturday. There was a question and answer section, and a trailer shown, which hopefully will be made available to the public, soon! Nine More spoilers were revealed which alluded to the type of season we can expect. Hugh Bonneville stole the show with a show of support for John Bates.
Stilton and Fig Tart with Walnut Dressing
This is a great simple addition to the savoury layer of your tea or your appetizer tray. The recipe comes from the famous Fortnum & Mason in London, a place many of you may have the opportunity to visit this summer. My treasured book of recipes from Fortnum & Mason was a gift from Ellen, my online friend who journeyed to London on a whim in response to a tweet I posted about a luncheon with Lady Carnvaron of High Clere Castle She promises she will provide an detailed account of her trip. As it turns out she is off again to London this Fall, this time with her son. Both trips were in tribute to her Mother’s memory who passed last September.
Emmy Wines Behind the Scenes: Stars Dish on Awards Drinks
Last night's Primetime Emmy Awards featured some familiar honorees—Game of Thrones, 96-year-old national treasure Betty White, and Napa's Sterling Vineyards and Italy's Ferrari Trento costarring as the official still and sparkling wines of the Emmy Awards Season.
But the night wasn't without primetime-style twists, and the best of them were accompanied by a glass of wine in hand. Here's the scoop on what (wines) went down at the 70th Emmy Awards.

The cast and crew of newcomer The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel had a lot to celebrate, taking home the big Outstanding Comedy Series win. One immediate perk: Mrs. Maisel herself, Rachel Brosnahan, was one of the first people to get a taste of the yet-to-be-released Sterling Iridium Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 after receiving her own statuette for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, a Sterling rep informed us.
Awardees George R. R. Martin, Bill Hader and Henry Winkler were also given their own customized bottles of Iridium. “I love Sterling—this is a great wine," first-time winner and longtime nominee Winkler was overheard saying. "But I’ve never had a bottle with my name on it!”
Director and producer Glenn Weiss certainly earned his personalized bottle, and plenty of occasion for popping it: Upon taking the stage to accept his Emmy for directing … the Oscars (meta), Weiss proposed to his girlfriend, Jan Svendsen. Unfiltered does wonder what would've happened if he hadn’t won or she hadn't said yes, but thankfully for everyone, he did and so did she, and the showbiz mogul toasted both his exciting milestones later on with his own bottle of 2015 Iridium.
In celebration of the awards show's platinum anniversary, the Governor's Ball after-party—typically a formal sit-down dinner in a ballroom—transformed into an outdoor rooftop bash, complete with more than 35 different plates from Patina Catering, directed by chef Joachim Splichal of Wine Spectator Grand Award winner Patina restaurant in Los Angeles. The 4,000 attendees noshed on dishes such as bamboo-spiked prime short rib, "favacado" toast, and their own creations from a DIY baked-potato bar.
As for the party's booze, Ketel One vodka guest-starred with three Emmys-themed cocktails: "Radiance," "Enlightenment" and "Restoration," which required some 6,000 pounds of ice, 75 pounds of strawberries and 2,400 edible flowers throughout the night, among other garnishes. In addition to Iridium, Sterling also poured its 2015 Platinum Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016 Napa Valley Chardonnay and 2016 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. On the bubbly side, Ferrari greeted Gov's Ball guests upon arrival with glasses of its Brut Trentodoc, and posted up at its own "Ferrari Bar" to pour its full lineup, including the Brut, Brut Rosé, Perlé 2012 and Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore 2005.
"We are honored to have been chosen once again as the toast of excellence in television entertainment," Ferrari president and CEO Matteo Lunelli said in a statement provided to Unfiltered. "We are also delighted to bring a touch of Italian lifestyle to this glamorous season of celebration." Cin cin to all who put on the night's memorable performances, both on the stage and behind the bar.
