Ramin Djawadi feels “honored” to win his first Emmy

While working on two massive HBO productions may seem daunting to some, Djawadi says the work is “very rewarding because what a lot of people don’t know is how much hard work this actually is. I literally work every day and weekends,” he said. “It’s a lot of hard work and a lot of effort we put in. I didn’t expect anything at all, and then to get two nominations at the same time — it was pretty mind-blowing, I have to say. I feel very honored, and it’s just unbelievable.”
