The show is already cleaning house and taking home some of the most coveted trophies in show business.
The documentary, directed by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, also won the award for outstanding creative achievement in interactive media within an unscripted program. It's up for seven awards subsequent Sunday, together with restricted collection, lead actor, supporting actor and actress, directing and writing.
The wins included an impressive though not unexpected seventh honor for special visual effects. Considering that was the episode where Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) outfits were working overtime to justify that Mad Queen heel-turn, this victory was much deserved.
In total, Parts Unknown took home five Emmys - including Outstanding Picture Editing for a Nonfiction Program, Outstanding Sound Editing for a Nonfiction Program (Single or Multi-Camera) and Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Nonfiction Program (Single or Multi-Camera) - which were handed out during the 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards. He was nominated alongside fellow Game of Thrones editors Katie Weiland (The Iron Thone), and Crispin Green (Winterfell).More news: Tsai blames Beijing for Solomon Islands' decision

Borstein was also among this year's nominees, as was another past victor, Hank Azaria, who has won four Emmys for providing voices on the Fox animated comedy "The Simpsons".
The show wasn't originally in the shortlist, but was added when Better Call Saul spin-off Madrigal Electromotive Security Training turned out to have episodes too short to meet the awards' rules. The second night saw prizes awarded for short-form drama and comedy series, casting, cinematography and guest performers in comedy and drama series.
- Music composition for a series (original dramatic score): Ramin Djawadi, "Game of Thrones: The Long Night".
"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" also scored big in craft categories such as period costumes, and won for music supervision.
First on the 2019 awards agenda is the Emmys, which will air live on Sunday, Sept. 22 on Fox at 8 p.m. ET. State Of The Union is available in the States through streaming service SundanceTV.
