HBO’s Game of Thrones continues to break records even though it had its final season this year. The show broke records for its final episode on May 19 which had over 15 million people from all over the world tuning in. Although Game of Thrones came to a dramatic end with its final six episodes, there is no denying that it was an outstanding fantasy drama series.

The final season is not just one of the most-watched TV series in the world but it recently got nominated for getting 32 Emmy nominations, breaking a long-standing record set by NYPD Blue for the most nominations for a single season.

Emilia Clarke (who plays Daenerys Targaryen) and Kit Harington (who plays Jon Snow) also got nominated in the Best Actor and Actress category, while eight other “Thrones” cast members swept the board in the supporting and guest acting categories.
