When HBO has not filed "Game of Thrones" starfor she has filed herself – and deserves the nomination. Once again proving that we should all bow our knees before Ser Brienne of Tarth, a knight of the seven kingdoms.
The actress submitted for the supporting actress in a drama series after the network had only submitted Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), who were nominated for the category a representative of HBO confirmed to CBS News.
Christie may have applied for the award herself but did not appear to do so A little less shocked by the nomination when the decisions were announced this week. "I can not believe it !!!!!! ????!? !!? !!!!!!!!!" She wrote in an Instagram title Tuesday. "THANK YOU UNIVERSE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" She published a photo of an apparently official e-mail informing her of the good news.
Their "Thrones" co-stars Heady, Turner and Williams were nominated along with Julia Garner from "Ozark" and Fiona Shaw from "Killing Eve".
Christie was not the only actress on the longtime show throwing her own hat into the ring. Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy) and Carice Van Houten (Melisandre) also submitted themselves, confirmed HBO. The actors received nods in the categories Supporting Actor in a drama series and guest actress in a drama series.
Through their representatives, the three performers who submitted themselves, according to the Hollywood Reporter, paid US $ 225. While it is not uncommon for actors to submit themselves, self-submitted artists rarely receive nominations, according to THR.
Game of Thrones scored a record 32 Emmy nominations for its eighth and final season on Tuesday. The sum of the bloodthirsty saga surpassed the record of 27 nods that "NYPD Blue" had achieved in 1994 in all series.
Although an Emmy nomination may not be the Iron Throne, it is quite close to each other.
