Emmys 2019: Julia Garner wins for her role of Ruth Langmore in 'Ozark' and the internet loves it
Garner wins the award against 'Game of Thrones' ladies Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Lena Headey and Gwendoline Christie.
Julia Garner has won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role of Ruth Langmore on Netflix's 'Ozark'. This is the first Emmy nomination and win for the actress.
In her acceptance speech on stage Garner pointed out how the award "looks like a piece of chocolate in a candy wrapper" before admitting that she feels very nervous.
Garner won the award beating off 'Game of Thrones' actors Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Lena Headey and Gwendoline Christie. This has led to a divided Twitter -- mostly as many recognise that Garner's win was very deserving.
"Y'all are allowed to be mad about the got ladies losing but I will not tolerate any Julia Garner slander because 'Ozark' is her show and she deserves that damn award," said one fan," said one fan. "Julia Garner really won over two Starks, a knight of the seven kingdoms and Cersei Lannister, and rightfully so..." said another.
"Julia Garner is a great actress. She’s the best part of Ozark and her work on Maniac this year plus the vote split with GoT actresses sealed the award win for her," said a fan.
