Yes, Benioff and Weiss have won best writing Emmys twice before, once for the Season 5 finale (beating out the Mike flashback episode from Season 1 of Better Call Saul, 2 episodes from the final season of Mad Men, and an episode of The Americans Season 3), and for the Battle of the Bastards episode from season 6 (beating out the Mr Robot pilot, the series finale of Downton Abbey, the series finale of The Good Wife, and episodes of The Americans Season 4 and Unreal.

 

This year, the episode nominated (the series finale) is up against the season 4 finale of Better Call Saul, the pilot of Bodyguard, an episode of Handmaid's Tale season 2, the season 1 finale of Succession, and an episode of Killing Eve season 2

The nominations are always wacky.  Like for season 8, if you were going to nominate one episode for writing, why would it be the finale instead of episode 2?

Because that's the one Dumb&Dumber have writing credit for, the ego bastards.

Episode 2 was literally the *only* consistently well-written episode in the final season of the show. In fact it's so tempting to imagine the show was cancelled after that great episode (I'm not one of those who wants to throw out all of seasons 7 and 8...just the last four long episodes of s8 lol). But there's probably a tradition of awarding finales or something. It's dumb though.
