Game of Thrones has broken the record for the highest number of Emmy Awards won by any fictional series.

In his opening monologue at the 68th Emmy Awards, host Jimmy Kimmel joked, “If your show doesn’t have a dragon or a white Bronco in it, go home,” but there still were plenty of reasons for the audience to stick around.

The programs alluded to in Kimmel’s quip — HBO’s Game of Thrones and FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story — did take home a substantial number of awards, including Outstanding Limited Series (The People v. O.J. Simpson) and Outstanding Drama Series (Game of Thrones).

Game of Thrones has broken the record for the highest number of Emmy Awards won by any fictional series.

The HBO fantasy drama triumphed in three categories at Sunday’s ceremony, including outstanding drama series.

The show’s total number of awards now stands at 38, which means it has beaten Frasier’s previous record of 37.
