‘Game of Thrones’ Destroys Single Season Emmy Nomination Record
At least “Game of Thrones'” final season wasn’t a colossal disappointment with regards to Emmy nominations.

HBO’s dragon drama left its final season’s naysayers in the show’s fiery wake at the Emmy nominations, scoring a mind-boggling 32 nominations, the most nominations for a single season of any show in history.

It was unclear heading into nominations whether industry voters would be as disappointed with the final season of the fantasy behemoth as some fans were, but Tuesday’s haul definitively proved otherwise.

Beyond nabbing its eighth nomination for outstanding drama series, “Game of Thrones” earned several other notable nominations, including one for writing, three for direction, plus an astonishing 10 total acting mentions, including Kit Harington for lead actor, Emilia Clarke for lead actress, Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams for supporting actress, Alfie Allen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Peter Dinklage for supporting actor, and

Emmys Trivia: 20 Surprising Facts From 2019’s Nominations

As previously noted, most of “The Handmaid’s Tale” Season 2 ran during 2018 Emmy eligibility.. But because three episodes of Season 2 aired outside of last year’s eligibility period, individual achievement awards from those three extra episodes were still eligible this year. And Hulu definitely benefited from that — otherwise, the
