Gwendoline Christie Submitting Herself For Emmy Consideration — And Then Getting The Nom — Is A Mood

The Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series goes to...

In case you're one of the seven people who didn't watch Game of Thrones, this is Gwendoline Christie, AKA Ser Brienne of Tarth.

She's been stealing the show on GoT since Season 2, but in the last season of the show, she particularly shined.

Well, yesterday the Emmy nominations came out and I was OVER THE MOON to see that Gwendoline Christie was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

HOWEVER, TODAY I LEARNED that Gwendoline submitted HERSELF for Emmy consideration. AND THEN GOT NOMINATED!

You read that correctly. Gwendoline took it upon herself to submit her OWN name for consideration because she knew it was what she deserved.

Now, in HBO's defense, I'm not sure if there's a cap on how many actors / series a network can submit for the Emmys.

But still, regardless of the reason why she had to submit herself, submit herself she did! And got on the ticket, to boot!

So, congrats to you, Ser Gwendoline! Knight of my heart.
