Game of Thrones scribes and co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss won the Emmy for best writing for a drama series for the episode “Battle of the Bastards” on Sunday night. The award was the HBO series’ 10th win this year after its nine wins at last week’s Creative Arts Emmys.
The HBO fantasy beat out FX’s The Americans, “Persona Non Grata,” written by Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg; PBS’ Downton Abbey, “Episode 8,” written by Julian Fellowes; CBS’ The Good Wife, “End,” written by Robert King and Michelle King; USA’s Mr. Robot, “eps1.0_hellofriend.mov,” written by Sam Esmail; and Lifetime’s UnREAL, “Return,” written by Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro.
Benioff thanked “Miguel Sapochnik directing their episode, our brilliant actors reading their lines and the best producing team on the planet lead by Bernie Caulfield producing their episode.”
Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards, airing live on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
