Emmys 2016: Which shows won the most
The 68th annual Emmy Awards was a tale of two big shows and a few surprises.
Game of Thrones was the top winner out of Sunday’s ceremony in Los Angeles, raking in an astonishing 12 awards including Outstanding Drama. HBO’s flagship series has accrued 38 total Emmy wins, which cements its place in television history as having won the most awards ever. (Frasier, the previous leader, had 37.)
While Thrones dominated spring and the early part of summer, The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story was winter’s victor. FX’s anthology drama garnered nine Emmys in its freshman season, winning three of the four Limited Series acting categories and claiming the Outstanding Limited Series crown.
