 Game of Thrones took home the coveted Emmy for Best Drama series Sunday night after being nominated in seven categories, including drama, directing, writing and acting.

“Game of Thrones” cleaned up the Emmy Awards nominations with a record-shattering 32 nods, including best drama series — but it was “Fleabag” that was the biggest winner of the night.
“Game of Thrones” also took home one acting award: Peter Dinklage’s fourth victory outstanding supporting actor in a drama series.
Still, the show broke its own record for most Emmys ever for a drama or comedy series at 58.
The series was nominated in seven categories, including drama, directing, writing and acting. “GoT” stars Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington were both nominated for lead acting honors for the first time, but lost respectively to “Killing Eve” star Jodie Comer and Billy Porter, who made history as the first openly gay man to win for best actor in a drama series. Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Lena Headey and Gwendoline Christie, all nominated for supporting actress in a drama series, lost out to Julia Garner of “Ozark.”
“Fleabag” won best comedy series, and the show’s star Phoebe Waller-Bridge took home the best lead actress in a comedy series Emmy, breaking Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ streak for “Veep.” She also won for best writing in a comedy series. Harry Bradbeer took home best directing for a comedy series for “Fleabag” immediately after Waller-Bridge’s victory.
Jharrel Jerome brought the room — and the Exonerated Five — to its feet with his acceptance speech for best actor in a limited series or movie for “When They See Us,” dedicating his award to the men falsely accused in the Central Park Five rape case. Michelle Williams, accepting the award for best actress in a limited series or movie for “Fosse/Verdon,” delivered a rousing speech encouraging studios to say “yes” to women’s requests and to offer more opportunities and equal pay to women of color.
The cast of “Game of Thrones” was honored with a montage onstage and a standing ovation from the entire audience when they presented the award together for outstanding supporting actress in a limited series or movie, with Gwendoline Christie earning more cheers than any other castmember. Patricia Arquette won the award for her portrayal of Dee Dee Blanchard in “The Act.” “In my heart, I’m so sad. I lost my sister Alexis and trans people are still being persecuted.” A weeping Arquette urged Hollywood of trans stars, “Give them jobs. They’re people! Give them jobs!”
“RuPaul’s Drag Race” took home the award for outstanding competition program. “Thanks to the Academy for voting for us,” RuPaul said. “And speaking of voting, go to vote.gov and get registered!”
The award for best actor in a comedy series went to Bill Hader for “Barry.”  Hader called out friend and “Barry” co-creator Alec Berg for directing him well in the dark dramedy.
Ben Stiller presented best supporting actor in a comedy series with the help of Bob Newhart, who mocked his own old age. “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star Tony Shaloub won, making it the fourth Emmy win of his career. Best supporting actress in a comedy series went to Alex Borstein. Recalling her grandmother surviving the Holocaust by stepping out of line, Borstein encouraged other women and immigrants to do the same.
Ben Whishaw won for best actor in a limited series for “A Very English Scandal, “apologizing for being hungover after his agent took him out the night before.
