Buzzy comedy Fleabag took home Best Comedy. HBO’s dark and heavy Chernobyl won Best Limited Series, while Black Mirror: Bandersnatch won Best TV movie.

Game of Thrones slashed its way to a record-setting 32 Emmy nominations for its eighth and final season. The bloodthirsty saga’s total eclipsed the all-time series record of 27 nods earned by NYPD Blue in 1994, but the number of nominations didn’t necessarily lead to victory — except in the biggest category, Best Drama.
