Fan-favourite, ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Fleabag’ earned the biggest awards at the 2019 Emmys.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 71st Primetime Emmys, which is Television’s biggest awards night, held on Sunday night in Los Angeles.

The biggest win of the night went to ‘Game of Thrones’.

The show took home outstanding drama series, and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) won best supporting actor in a drama.

Although it was a fitting farewell to the highly influential show, it only snagged two awards from the pool of news-breaking nominations.

All the ‘Game of Thrones’ nominees in the supporting actress for a drama category, including the favourite Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Masie Williams and Gwendoline Christie, lost out to a shocked Julia Garner from ‘Ozark’.

Also, Jodie Comer clinched the best lead actress in a drama award over ‘Killing Eve’ co-star, Saundra Oh, previously ripped to be the first woman of Asian descent to win.

Bill Hader from ‘Barry’ and Phoebe Waller-Bridge from ‘Fleabag’ took out the big comedy acting awards, with ‘Fleabag’ ending up with four awards in total.

Meanwhile ‘Chernobyl’ scored three gongs and ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ snagged two awards.
