Game of Thrones has won 38 Emmy Awards to become the most successful and the most awarded narrative series ever at the Emmy Awards.
The show entered this year's Emmy Awards ceremony already leading the pack, having won nine statues from the Creative Arts Emmys last weekend, a haul that allowed "Thrones" to surpass "The West Wing" and "Hill Street Blues" and claim the record for the drama series with the most wins in Emmy history. The glamorous event offered a few surprises as well as two big winners: The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and Game of Thrones. What makes it worthy to be called a "work of art" is that it won this specific award for the second straight year.
One of the most hilarious moments of the evening consisted in him jumping off stage and handing an Emmy to Jeffrey Tambor, victor of Best Actor in a Comedy Series for "Transparent".

It was her third gong for the role, although she was not present at the ceremony.
In the meanwhile, The People received five Emmy Awards which includes the Outstanding Limited Series.
