GAME OF THRONES Makes Emmys History with 32 Nominations for Its Final Season

— July 16, 2019

Special to The Lede

It's time to make a lot more room in the already jam-packed trophy case, as Crave and CTV programming hit new heights with an amazing haul of nominations for the 2019 PRIMETIME EMMY AWARDS. Crave and CTV led the way as Bell Media programming collected a grand total of 250 nominations.

It was a banner day in particular for HBO, which set a new single-season Emmy nominations record, with 137, beating its 2015 record of 126. While HBO's GAME OF THRONES stirred up plenty of online chatter and intense debate in its eighth and final season, the epic series got rave reviews and tons of love from Emmy voters, setting a new record for a single year with 32 nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series. Remarkably, 10 individual actors and actresses from GAME OF THRONES were singled out for their stellar performances, including Emilia Clarke for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama, and Kit Harington for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama.

An astonishing four of the six nominees for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama are from GAME OF THRONES (Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, and Gwendoline Christie), as well as three of the seven nominees for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama (Alfie Allen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Peter Dinklage). That's seven of 13 slots for supporting acting!

HBO's sleeper hit miniseries, CHERNOBYL (19, third-most overall), and HBO's BARRY (17, tied for fifth-most overall), were also near the top of the nominations list. The full and vast array of Emmy-nominated HBO programming is available for streaming, only on Crave, as is SHOWTIME's ESCAPE AT DANNEMORA (12 nominations), and Bravo's THE HANDMAID'S TALE (11), and KILLING EVE (nine), which includes nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama category for both Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer.

CTV's THIS IS US got nine nominations as well, including Outstanding Drama Series, and individual lead acting nods for Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, and Milo Ventimiglio.

The 71st PRIMETIME EMMY AWARDS will be held Sunday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. ET, live on CTV.
