The ‘GoT’ Cast Just Reunited On The Emmy Stage For The Last Time So Cue The Waterworks

The Game of Thrones cast just reunited onstage at the Emmy Awards for the last time after eight seasons together, and I am a mess. Not only because they received a standing ovation from the entire house, but because I just remembered it really is over.

On behalf of the whole cast, Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy, RIP), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Gwendoline Christie (Ser Brienne of Tarth), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), and Carice van Houten (Melisandre) took to the stage to present the award for Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie.

(All of these stars are nominated for an Emmy by the way but more on that later.)

Are you ready to cry?

And look at what Alfie just posted on his Instagram Story.

A whole lot of exciting stuff happens at the Emmy Awards, you don’t need me tell you that. But it’s often the little moments that completely melt me. Like a sweet lil’ reunion between Sophie and Kit.

The Queen in the North and her unfortunately banished brother were captured embracing in a loooooong hug sometime during the ceremony, and it’s just – it’s sweet. It’s really sweet.

Tag yourself: I’m Sophie telling Kit he looks “so handsome.”

Game of Thrones is nominated for a slew of Emmy gongs including Supporting Actress (Sophie Turner, Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams), Outstanding Drama Series, Supporting Actor (Alfie Allen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage), Lead Actress (Emilia Clarke), Lead Actor (Kit Harington), and Guest Actress (Carice van Houten).

Last week, ahead of the main event, Game of Thrones picked up five Creative Arts Emmy Awards for just one episode, The Long Night. 

The Long Night, which was nominated for seven awards, picked up the gong for Outstanding Make-up for a Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic), Outstanding Music Composition for Series (Original Dramatic Score), Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series, Outstanding Sound Editing for A Comedy or Drama Series (One-Hour), and Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series (One-Hour).

Game of Thrones aside, everyone’s great love Phoebe Waller-Bridge just scooped up two Emmys for her excellent work on Fleabag. Waller-Bridge was honoured with both Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
