Game of Thrones Breaks Emmy Record – Emmy Awards 2016 Winners List

We’ve already talked about the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, but now it’s time for the real deal, and the legendary HBO show Game of Thrones has broken the record for the highest number of awards won by a fictional series.

The previous record holder was Frasier, which won a total of 37 awards. Game of Thrones just managed to beat them with the coup of 38 awards.

We will share the full list of awards, but look at some other notable winners first. Rami Malek won the outstanding lead actor award for his role in the fantastic Mr Robot, a well deserved award that makes him the first non-white actor to win that award since 1998.

Jeffrey Tambor was also recognised with the outstanding comedy actor award for the second year in a row, for his role in Transparent.

When picking up his award, Jeffrey had quite a bit to say. He touched on the divisive topic of a cisgender actor playing a transgender character, which has been in the limelight as of late.

“Now listen to me, I’m not going to say this beautifully. To you people out there, you producers and you network owners and you agents and you creative sparks: please give transgender talent a chance.”

“Give them auditions. Give them their stories. Do that. And also one more thing: I would not be unhappy were I the last cisgender male to play a female transgender on television. We have work to do. I love you.”

You can find the full list of nominees and winners below. Winners will be in bold.
