HBO's Game of Thrones literally dominated the grand 2016 Emmys Awards as it wins 11 Emmys Awards, which includes the award of Outstanding Drama Series. She showed up at the Tonys.

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".

If you missed the Emmys, you may have missed host Jimmy Kimmel's joke about Maggie not deserving her award because she wasn't there.

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.

Maggie Smith won an Emmy on Sunday for her role on "Downton Abbey".

Julia Louis-Dreyfus: "Our show started out as a political satire, but it now feels more like a sobering documentary".

The host made cracks about deporting "The Apprentice" producer, United Kingdom born Mark Burnett if Trump wins the 2016 election.

But before presenters Minnie Driver and Michael Weatherly could accept the award on Smith's behalf, Kimmel intercepted the trophy and told Smith to retrieve it herself.

Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang picked up an Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series Emmy for "Master of None" and Patton Oswalt won for Writing for a Variety Special for his stand-up concenter special "Patton Oswalt: Talking for Clapping".

Masterpiece PBS, home to Downton Abbey, posted Smith's acceptance note Monday afternoon on Twitter, saying: "Dame Maggie Smith graciously accepts her Emmy award" and that Kimmel "please advise on the location of the lost and found!"
