"Game of Thrones" secured its place on the Emmys' Iron Throne Sunday by tying its own record for most Emmys won by a series in a single season.

The HBO fantasy epic has been the titleholder since it grabbed 12 golden ladies for Season 5 in 2015.

The record was matched thanks to "GoT's" win for Outstanding Drama Series, and Peter Dinklage's win for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (his fourth win in that category).
