'Game of Thrones'
Which brings us to genre TV's great white hope, the Breaker of Chains, the Sword in the Darkness, Azor Ahai reborn (okay, okay, we'll stop mixing our mythos). David Benioff and D.B. Weiss's HBO fantasy juggernaut virtually dominated the 2015 nominations, though Game of Thrones has garnered loads of nods in past years, for best drama series, writing, directing and acting. But the only win so far has been a supporting actor trophy for Peter Dinklage in 2011. Still, the show trounced the competition in the Creative Arts Emmys earlier this week, and is nominated in five primetime categories including Best Drama. Could this be the year it takes the Iron Throne?
