Highlights

  1. Gwendoline Christie was nominated in Best Supporting Actress category
  2. Gwendoline and 2 more actors submitted themselves for consideration
  3. Game of Thrones won Best Drama Series award

Gwendoline Christie won the Emmys before they even began. The Game Of Thrones star, nominated for Best Supporting Actress - Drama (and more on that later), showed up on the red carpet in what looked like full medieval regalia - a robe in scarlet and white, fastened with an ornate buckle. With designer cred - Gucci, no less - but a medieval robe is what it was and given that it was being worn by Brienne of Tarth, Twitter lost its mind. As Gwendoline Christie swept down the Emmys red carpet, social media's head exploded in awe, reverence and sheer delight: "God is a woman."

As you see:

Gwendoline Christie's nomination was one of a record 32 scored by Game Of Thrones, the final season of which aired this year. Of the nominations, 10 were in the acting categories - of these, only Peter Dinklage won (Best Supporting Actor - Drama). But Gwendoline's nomination was remarkable for this reason - she and two other actors, Alfie Allen and Clarice van Houten, submitted themselves for consideration at the Emmys. This in itself might not be unique but the fact that all three were actually nominated is. HBO, the studio that backed Game Of Thrones, entered Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau - in other words, its marquee names - in the running for Emmy nods. Gwendoline Christie, Alfie Allen and Carice van Houten funded themselves (there is a $225 submission fee) and, very unusually, received nominations.

As it turned out, none of them won - but Gwendoline Christie didn't need to.

Game Of Thrones also won Best Drama Series at the Emmys and 10 Technical Awards in a ceremony held earlier.
