‘Game of Thrones’ final season: 4th Emmy win for Best Drama Series would tie the record of these 4 classic shows

‘Game of Thrones’ final season: 4th Emmy win for Best Drama Series would tie the record of these 4 classic shows

Did you know that four classic TV shows — “Hill Street Blues,” “L.A. Law,” “The West Wing” and “Mad Men” — currently share the record for the most Best Drama Series Emmy victories at four apiece? Of course you did. Well, three-time champion “Game of Thrones” could soon join them on this elite list for its sure-to-be-epic final season.

Cop show “Hill Street Blues” first prevailed from 1981 to 1984 and held the Emmy record until legal drama “L.A. Law” matched its four wins, though not consecutively, in 1987 and 1989-91. Then came political series “The West Wing,” which won four in a row between 2000 and 2003. Finally, period drama “Mad Men” is TV’s most recent four-timer, taking home the top trophy from 2008 to 2011.
