These Three 'Game of Thrones' Stars Nominated Themselves for Emmys
These Three 'Game of Thrones' Stars
Nominated Themselves for Emmys HBO’s show ’Game of Thrones’ recently swept the Emmy nominations with a total of 32 nominations.
Among them were Alfie Allen for
outstanding supporting actor in a drama series, Gwendoline Christie for outstanding
supporting actress in a drama series and Carice van Houten for outstanding
guest actress in a drama series.
These ‘Game of Thrones’ stars were not
entered by HBO for Emmy consideration,
but rather paid the $225 entry fee themselves.
HBO did however successfully nominate
Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey,
Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams. It is not uncommon for shows with a multitude
of series regulars to limit their choices, but it is uncommon that those who self-submit
themselves end up receiving the nomination.
