Emmy-winning shows to watch on Showmax

Once again HBO’s Game of Thrones wins the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series for the third time, and with the final season coming in 2019, now is the perfect time to binge-watch the entire boxset on Showmax.

Game of Thrones had to sit out last year’s Emmy Awards because of scheduling, and The Handmaid’s Tale took the top spot for best drama, but the Seven Kingdoms have now reclaimed the title!

“Thank you for letting us take care of your people,” Game of Thrones producer DB Weiss said to George RR Martin, whose incredible novels fuel the hit drama series.

Here are all the Emmy Award-winning shows you should be binge-watching right now on Showmax!
