‘Game Of Thrones’ Broke One Emmys Record, And Will Shatter Another Soon

“The Battle of the Bastards” isn’t the most-watched episode of Game of Thrones — “The Winds of Winter” holds that title — but it might be the best. The season six clash between Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton has a nearly perfect IMDb rating (I’ve always said “Bastards” is 0.8 better than a random episode of Perfect Strangers), and it took home a bundle of Creative Arts Emmys over the weekend. Four, specifically, with another five trophies for different episodes, like “The Door” (sad face), or Game of Thrones in general. Here they are.
