Game of Thrones broke the record for winning the most Emmys in one year, taking their haul to 12 trophies last night, September 20 (U.S. time).
The HBO show added to the eight prizes it scooped at the recent Creative Arts Emmy Awards at the 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards by picking up another four awards; including the coveted Outstanding Drama Series, as well as Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, and Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series.
Peter Dinklage, who has previously won for his role as Tyrion Lannister, took the prize for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for the second time.
Miniseries Olive Kitteridge was the big winner of the evening at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, picking up six trophies, including Outstanding Limited Series and acting honors for Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, and Richard Jenkins.
Elsewhere, Viola Davis made history as the first woman of color to win the Outstanding Actress in a Drama award for her part in How To Get Away With Murder.
Viola, 50, quoted activist Harriet Tubman in her acceptance speech and paid tribute to fellow stars including Taraji P. Henson, Scandal star Kerry Washington, and Extant's Halle Berry for "taking us over that line."
She also said: "The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity.
"You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there."
Elsewhere at the awards, which honor excellence in television and were hosted by Andy Samberg, Amy Schumer bagged the Inaugural Outstanding Variety Sketch Series award and dedicated the prize to her sister.
She said: "[To] my sister Kim, who's the only reason I'm alive and breathing."
