What do you do when you aren’t submitted as a nominee for the 2019 Emmy Awards? You submit yourself, obviously. What’s more, that is actually what the Knights of the Seven Kingdoms did!
Things being what they are, HBO didn’t put Emmy chosen one Gwendoline Christie up for thought; she self-submitted and in this manner earned the assignment herself, nearby individual self-submitted candidates Alfie Allen and Carice van Houten.
Each of them were nominated for Emmys within their respective categories of best supporting actress, best supporting actor, and best guest actress in a drama series. The cost of submitting a self-nomination is $225.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO didn’t nominate Christie and Allen so it could promote the bigger stars in the supporting categories instead.
The show broke records this year for having the most Emmy nominations and Christie’s nomination is one of GoT’s 33 nominations.
