Mentioning some of the Game of Thrones actors on the list of nominees for the top TV Emmy 2019 came as a complete surprise to HBO and the show's authors. As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, the official lists of potential applicants represented by the TV channel itself did not include Gwendoline Christie, Alfie Owen-Allen and Caris Van Houten.
As it turned out, the artists independently applied through their representatives, paying the required contribution of $ 225 in this case. As a result, Christie and Allen were in the list of contenders for awards for supporting roles, and Van Houten in the guest star category.
Note that there is nothing unusual in self-nomination of actors for the American Television Academy award, only unusual then, that all three applications were granted. Recall also that the series "Game of Thrones" set a new all-time record: in 2019 it will be able to claim 32 awards - the largest number in the history of "Emmy" the name of the HBO TV channel is still unknown.
