Emmys 2019: 'Game of Thrones' fans say the women 'deserved a win' after award show snubs actresses
Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke, as well as Lena Headey, deserved a win, Game of Thrones fans think
'Game of Thrones' fans are mad that the actresses that played some of the most promising roles in the fantasy saga were completely forgotten at the Emmys in spite of most of them being nominated. The female characters of the show really made the storyline worth watching they think and that actresses like Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke, as well as Lena Headey, deserved a win.
"They deserve a win. I mean, they carried entire episodes," said a fan, angrily. A second one added, "None of the Game of Thrones women won an award.. that’s so sad, it’s not their fault the script sucked, they killed it.. oh well"
It's been a complicated year for HBO's 'Game of Thrones'. The final season went downhill quickly, especially the finale angering longtime loyal fans of the show. A Starbucks cup made an appearance in the North and two water bottles were spotted in Westeros. If that wasn't bad enough, the show made matters worse when they killed off the character of Daenerys Targaryen played by Clarke, and fans thought that was most disrespectful.
"Not one of the fantastic women from @GameOfThrones won Best Supporting Actress," one fan wrote, while another pointed out, "Disappointed or not, we can't deny the facts that Game of Thrones women changed the game here. A women empowerment defy our time. From Cersei Lannister to Daenerys Targaryen to Sansa Stark and to Arya Stark."
The show won in the Outstanding Drama Category and only Peter Dinklage who played Tyrion Lannister on the show won in any category from the cast. Some fans even pointed out that Dinklage's win was misplaced, especially since his character didn't have a lot to do this season. "#GameOfThrones #Emmys so the women carried this show for 8 seasons and none of them won but somehow peter Dinklage won for the 80th time and he was barely in this season ..." a fan said.
