Emmys: Game of Thrones Took Home the Big Prize, but Here's Where It Was Snubbed

  • Popsugar
Although it came in with the night's highest profile and a load of nominations, Game of Thrones actually lost quite a few times at Sunday night's Emmy Awards. The HBO fantasy did win the night's top prize for best drama series - and it snagged several technical awards at the Creative Arts Emmys - but in many of the other major categories, it was almost completely shut out. Here's how it all went down.

Game of Thrones had a whopping ten acting nominations coming into the evening. Guest actress Carice van Houten had already lost at the Creative Arts Emmys, but the rest of the cast was still awaiting their fates. All four categories were represented: Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke in the lead actor/actress in a drama categories, and Alfie Allen, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, and Sophie Turner in the supporting categories.

Julia Garner (Netflix’s ‘Ozark’) just broke this 40-year Emmy trend in Best Drama Supporting Actress
Age may be just a number, but it affects one Emmy category in particular quite significantly over the past few decades. In order to win Best Drama Supporting Actress at the Emmys, there seems to be an unwritten age requirement of 30 or older, as we have seen over the past 40 years of the category’s history, with few exceptions like Katherine Heigl winning at 29 for “Grey’s Anatomy.” There were three actresses nominated this year who could have broken the trend as they were all in their early to mid-20s: Julia Garner, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams. Garner ended up prevailing Sunday night — see full list of winners.

SEEHere are the 14 Netflix shows that won Emmys in 2019: ‘Ozark,’ ‘When They See Us,’ ‘Black Mirror’ …

Garner is now the youngest to win Best Drama Supporting Actress since Kristy McNichol, who won for “Family” in 1979, two days before her 17th birthday.

When the “Game of Thrones” cast and creators were asked about the backlash to the show’s divisive final season after winning the Outstanding Drama Series award at Sunday’s Primetime Emmy Awards, Kit Harington bravely stepped forward to answer the question.

“I still haven’t seen the show,” Harington, who was nominated for best actor in a drama series for his role as Jon Snow, told press backstage. “So that’s how I dealt with that controversy — I haven’t seen the final season but I know what it took to shoot it. It was hard and all of them put their love and effort into it.

Controversy for us didn’t really affect us.”

Not Even the Night King Could Stop the Game of Thrones Cast From Dominating the Emmys

Since Game of Thrones is a fantasy drama, it's only right that the cast went for fantasy and drama with their looks at the Emmys on Sunday. The costars appeared at the La event for one last Emmys hoorah following the show's eighth and final season in April. The stars were dressed to the nines, especially Emilia Clarke, who wore a navy blue gown with a plunging neckline, and Gwendoline Christie, who rocked a renaissance-esque red and white dress with bronze embroidery. And if those looks didn't make your jaw drop, perhaps Sophie Turner's light pink ensemble and Maisie Williams' ornamental outfit did.

Inside the Microsoft Theater venue, Sophie and Kit Harington had an adorable reunion, greeting each other with smiles and a warm hug. "You look so handsome!" Sophie says in a video captured by The Hollywood Reporter writer Scott Feinberg. Too cute!
