Game of Thrones has won the award for Outstanding Drama Series at the 2018 Emmy Awards.
Accepting the award were showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, producer Bernie Caufield, author George R.R. Martin as well as an array of the show’s cast, including Peter Dinklage, Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Isaac Hempstead-Wright and more.
“Writing for these actors behind me has been the greatest honor … We didn’t invent these characters, the show could not be without the mad genius of George, thank you for trusting us with your characters,” said Benioff during his acceptance speech.
“A show is only as good as the people who make it, and we’re blessed and lucky to have the greatest cast, the greatest crew, the greatest producers,” continued Weiss. “It is an honor to work with them from Spain to Iceland all the way to our home base of Belfast, Northern Ireland.”
