'Game of Thrones' knocks our 'Frasier's' record at Emmy Awards plus winners 2016 images

NBC’s “Fraiser” has held the record for most awarded Emmys, but that changed Sunday night at the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards when HBO’s “Game of Thrones” thrashed them to take that honor with 12 awards. This included best drama so winter did come for Kelsey Grammer and crew. The full list of winners is just below.

The other big award winners at the Emmys were “Veep,” and “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.” That latter won five awards including best-limited series.  Julia Louis-Dreyfuss won her fifth consecutive Emmy in the lead comedy actress category.

The brilliant BBC series “Sherlock,” starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman won for Outstanding Television movie with their special episode movie, “The Abominable Bride.”

Sunday night’s show will be remembered more for the speeches like Jill Soloway calling to ‘topple the patriarchy,’ Kate McKinnon setting Twitter on fire, Sandwich Gate and Tatiana Maslany winning for clone-club.

Jimmy Kimmel kicked off the night with a low-speed car chase as an homage to O.J. Simpson. He attempted to reach the Microsoft Theater in downtown L.A. began in a white Bronco driven by Malcolm-Jamal Warner and continued in vehicles with the “Modern Family” Dunphy family, “Late Late Show” host James Corden, “Veep” President Selina Meyer (who made a fantastically off-color joke about LBJ, Lyndon Baines Johnson) and presidential candidate-turned-Uber driver Jeb Bush. (“If you run a positive campaign, the voters will ultimately make the right choice,” he told Emmy nominee Kimmel.) The host’s arduous commute culminated in a ride on the back of one of Daenerys Targaryen’s “Game of Thrones” dragons — which set Ryan Seacrest ablaze.

Then Kimmel began talking and hit the expected subjects.

Once Kimmel started his monologue, it didn’t take long for the subject to turn to this year’s presidential election. “If it wasn’t for television, would Donald Trump be running for president?” he asked, to which the audience replied with an enthusiastic “No!”

Kimmel turned his attention to the man he said was to blame for “the Donald Trump phenomenon”: Mark Burnett, the British producer who created “The Apprentice” and made “You’re fired!” a beloved catchphrase. As the camera lingered on Burnett’s face as he cringed guiltily, Kimmel quipped, “Thanks for coming from England to tear us all apart.”
