List Rules Vote up the award nominations you think Game of Thrones deserves the most.

Game of Thrones is easily considered one of the greatest shows of the 2010s, if not of all time, and it's received some major Emmy nominations over the years. Not only has the show been nominated over and over, but it's won several awards for a range of categories, from its sounds editing and mixing to stunt coordination and visual effects. In 2018 alone, Game of Thrones received 22 Emmy nominations. While some fans may say the series should win them all, which Emmy award do you think it deserves most?

Again, the two-time Emmy-winning dramas series is no stranger to the stage. Speaking of, the Outstanding Drama Series may be the most well-deserved award of all the Game of Thrones 2018 Emmy nominations. The show's already taken it home in 2015 and 2016, so why not make it lucky number three? Perhaps GoT could also take the title for Outstanding Directing, or even for the incredible hairstyling? Regardless, the hit show deserves numerous Emmys, as it does year after year.
