Source: AP. Game Of Thrones defied a middling critical reception to its final season to go out on top at the Emmys. HBO's sprawling fantasy epic earned two awards on Sunday, with the show itself landing outstanding drama series.

Its losing nominations included best actor for Kit Harington and best actress of Emilia Clarke, while it had multiple entries in the supporting categories.

The two wins at the Primetime ceremony added to the 10 it scored earlier this month at the Creative Arts Emmys, where the technical aspects of TV production are recognised.

Game Of Thrones' 12 wins this year matched its own record, set in 2015 and 2016.
