If you were hoping Game of Thrones and Veep would be toppled at the Emmys, better luck next year.
The HBO shows took home the top prizes at Sunday’s awards show, with Game of Thrones and Veep taking home the awards for Outstanding Drama Series and Comedy Series, respectively, for the second straight year.
“Holy crap!” Veep showrunner David Mandel said when he took the stage, before joking, “I have a 9:30 a.m. library shift at my son’s school tomorrow morning if anyone is willing to trade with me at home or you just email me.”
Julia Louis-Dreyfus,who broke down in tears after winning her fifth straight Emmy for Veep earlier in the night, had a Jennifer Lawrence moment, nearly tripping on the way up the stairs for the second to last award.
Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss took the stage to accept the final award of the night, presented by NYPD Blue’s Dennis Franz and Jimmy Smits. Game of Thrones has now been nominated for more than 100 Emmys.
Benioff made waves for singling out his wife, Amanda Peet, and their upcoming 10th wedding anniversary during his acceptance speech. Before he got up onstage, he and Peet shared a passionate kiss.
“We have the best cast that’s ever been assembled,” Benioff praised.
“We’re standing up here because George R.R. Martin created the world that we all now live and play in. We’re standing up here because HBO, Richard Plepper, Mike Lombardo have graciously kept the lights on,” Weiss said. “And we’re standing up here because of the greatest, hardest working, craziest crew in show business that in a few hours is going to go back to work in Belfast, Ireland.”
