Game of Thrones just smashed a 15-year-old record for most Emmy wins in a single year

Dwarfs?  Really?

Game of Thrones: Emmy voters really, really like you. The HBO drama just smashed a 15-year-old record set by The West Wing in 2000 to earn more Emmys in a single year than any other TV show in history. Game of Thrones’ roster of wins includes three at tonight’s ceremony, including writing, directing, and a Best Supporting Actor trophy for Peter Dinklage. Game of Thrones’ 11 wins already dwarfs The West Wing’s nine, but the number might get even bigger: the series is also nominated for Best Drama, which has yet to be awarded. Scott Meslow
