The 2019 Emmy nominations are out and this time, it's HBO all the way to the top, thanks to the melted Iron Throne. Because with 32 nominations, HBO's Game of Thrones broke the record for the most nominations earned in a single year by any drama series.
It's official. With 32 total Emmy nominations, GAME OF THRONES holds the crown for the most nominations in a single season, breaking the 25 year old record held by NYPD BLUE #Emmys #EmmyNominations pic.twitter.com/0AYQqXYRr8— Matt Neglia (@NextBestPicture) July 16, 2019
Over the years, Game of Thrones has broken quite a few Emmy records. And with the current year's 32 nominations, GoT's total Emmy nominations have gone up to 161.
Game of Thrones won nominations in the categories of Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor (Male and Female), among others. And four of its cast members--Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Gwendoline Christie--have been nominated in the category for Best Drama Supporting Actress.
Maybe these nominations were also something that Bran predicted, cuz Twitterati had very mixed reactions to it:
so you are telling me that the game of thrones season 8 finale was nominated for an emmy, but not the masterpiece that was “a knight of the seven kingdoms”.....a joke....a literal joke pic.twitter.com/sGuhrhZbLS— ben (@starkrings) July 16, 2019
If it wins, the Emmys are more of a joke than the writing in season 8 was.— The Wolf (@Wolfgang187) July 16, 2019

If they win, emmys will never be taken serious. The last season was dogshit— Alan Smith (@Alan8smith) July 16, 2019
However, while GoT nominations may have left people surprised (read: shocked), what didn't surprise people was that shows like Fleabag, Chernobyl, When They See Us and Schitt's Creek were also nominated in various categories.
Every single actress on fleabag got an emmy nomination pic.twitter.com/PqB0O4q1qZ— mubarak (@alIabouteve) July 16, 2019
