'Game Of Thrones' Won The Emmy For Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series & Twitter Is So Overjoyed
In case you missed it, Game Of Thrones won its first ever Emmy Award for Drama Writing on Sunday night — and Twitter went completely nuts. The HBO series has courted its fair share of criticism this season, but there can’t be any doubt that the awards circuit still loves this fantasy epic. (The show now has 11 total Emmys. Just Emmys!) Co-showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss took the stage Sunday night to accept their trophies for penning the episode “Mother’s Mercy," which aired during Game Of Thrones Season 5. Their episode bested nominated scripts from Better Caul Saul, The Americans, and two episodes of Mad Men (including the latter's well-received series finale). But the battle for the seven kingdoms has still got voters in its sway, and Game Of Thrones' Twitter fandom could not be happier about it.
Luckily, social media is always there to facilitate the most extreme of reactions, with as many capslocked words, exclamation points, and dragon GIFs as fans care to use.
The Game Of Thrones audience has always been extremely vocal, and Emmys night was no different. These are some of the best and most borderline nonsensical (but fun!) tweets out there celebrating the Game Of Thrones Emmy win for Drama Writing.

It's a joke about how many of the show's characters die on a weekly basis, everyone.
