Game of Emmys

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” knows about high-stakes competitions, even when the prize isn’t a seat on the massive Iron Throne. The show earned 23 Emmy nominations for the 2016 award ceremony, missing last year’s number by just one. “Thrones” could still break it’s own record of most Emmy wins for a series in a single year. The number to beat? Twelve.


This year also brings added significance to the race. “Game of Thrones” is currently tied with “West Wing” and “Hill Street Blues” for the most wins for a drama over the course of the show’s run. “Thrones” is sure to pass that number after this year’s ceremony.

Both Kit Harrington and Maisie Williams earned their first nominations in the Outstanding Supporting Actor and Actress categories for their portrayals of Jon Snow and Arya Stark, respectively.

With an all-star cast and episodes like “Battle of the Bastards” and “The Door” nominated, there’s no doubt “Game of Thrones” will win big. But who will take home a golden statuette? You’ll have to tune in to find out. Jimmy Kimmel will host the 68th Emmy Awards Show on September 18th from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on ABC.
