Westeros may be a dangerous place, but it certainly seems to have made Emmy voters feel right at home.
On Saturday night, Thrones took home nine awards, one more than it did at last year’s Creative Arts Emmys, with wins for casting in a drama series; production design for a narrative contemporary or fantasy program; costumes for a period/fantasy series; single-camera picture editing for a drama series; makeup for a single-camera series (non-prosthetic); prosthetic makeup for a series, limited series, movie or special; sound mixing for a comedy or drama series; special visual effects (its fifth consecutive win in the category); and stunt coordination for a drama series, limited series or movie.
For the first time, the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out over two nights in ceremonies held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles (the show will air Sept. 17, the night before the Primetime Emmys, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FXX).
Next Sunday, Thrones will aim to continue its Emmy domination at the Primetime Emmy Awards, where it will once again be the most nominated program and look to retain its best drama series crown. The preshow for that ceremony kicks off live at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on ABC.
