The 71st PrimeTime Emmy Awards came to a wrap on Sunday night in Los Angeles. Winners from the Best television series were honoured for their performances of the past year, with some exciting and unpredictable wins.

Game of Thrones, which had a record 32 nominations, became one of the major stories as it failed to break it's own Emmy record. Having won 10 Creative Arts Emmy awards for Season 8 earlier, just three more could have helped it to take its tally to 13 (from 12), thereby creating a new record. However, it was not that big a surprise since the last season received an underwhelming response. Nevertheless, the show took home two awards; Best Drama and Best Supporting Actor, Drama for Peter Dinklage.

Another big surprise of the night was Fleabag sweeping four major awards, namely Best Comedy, Best Actress In A Comedy, Best Writing and Best Direction.
