The Emmy Awards

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards delivered a night surprises and farewells, with shows like “Fleabag” and “Game of Thrones” and streaming services like Netflix and Amazon (and of course HBO) having big nights.

‘Game of Thrones’ ties Emmys records, wins best drama series i4be7tp2tfgzdh7qgdvv3grv6a-story.html

Despite a universally panned final season that saw fans start a petition — signed by thousands — asking for reshoots, the sprawling epic fantasy drama made history Sunday at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.

The eighth and final season of the wildly popular HBO series ended Sunday’s award show by winning best drama series to tie its own record for most Emmys for a single season of a show.

That final honor gave Season 8 of “Game of Thrones” 12 Emmys in 2019, matching a mark previously set by the show’s fifth season in 2015.

Season 8 entered Sunday’s primetime ceremony having already won 10 awards at last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys, leaving it just two shy of the record. In addition to winning best drama series Sunday, the show also saw Peter Dinklage win best supporting actor for a drama.

Segment 2: Collective Soul

1. The new album Blood has a real throwback vibe to it. Like, it could be out in 1999 or 2019 but doesn’t feel dated in any way

  1. With the music industry changing so much what is the music trend in rock these days? I feel like it has no feel with rap and r&b and pop at the forefront
  2. Right as Rain is the stand out track for me. I love how conflicted you feel in that song as you address the contemporary world.

  4. There are quite a few deeply personal tracks on this record. OverMe, Them Blues,
  5. What other tracks grab your attention off the record?
  6. What’s the tour plans – you guys are touring right now.

  8. 25 years in what have you learned?
