Emmy 2018 Winners List: ‘Game of Thrones’ Wins Big

All ducks were put in a row, hands on the plough to get the 70th edition of primetime Emmy Awards going, and it went down last night at Microsoft theatre, Los Angeles, California, USA. The awards recognized and honoured excellence in US primetime television programming.
