Gwendoline Christie Submitted Herself for an Emmy and Got Nominated

By

While there was plenty of criticism for Game of Thrones Season 8 online, there's no doubt that some of the characters absolutely blew it out of the water. Theon Greyjoy, played by Alfie Allen, completed his redemption arc in one of the best ways possible. And if you didn't cry when Brienne of Tarth was knighted after six seasons of being one of the most honorable characters on the show, we don't even want to know you. 

So it should come as no surprise that both actors have been nominated for a supporting Actress / Actor Emmy. But according to The Hollywood Reporter it wasn't HBO who nominated the pair, nor did they submit Carice van Houten for her role as Melisandre, who also is also nominated for Best Guest Actress.
