“Game of Thrones” has been nominated for 23 total Emmys this year, with six of those coming in the acting categories: Peter Dinklage is going for a third win in Best Drama Supporting Actor, while Kit Harington will challenge him in the same category on his first Emmy nod. Maisie Williams has also been given her first nomination, in Best Drama Supporting Actress, while Lena Headey and Emilia Clarke pick up their third nomination each in the same category. And Max von Sydow earns his first nom as Best Drama Guest Actor.
It’s no surprise they reaped bids as the acting has been praised as the one of the best parts of the show in each season. In total, seven of the cast have been nominated for an Emmy — all of those above plus recurring guest star Diana Rigg. That number, however, does seem a little low considering the show boasts such a talented ensemble.
Plenty of great performances have, sadly, gone unrewarded. There just aren’t enough nomination spaces. Of the 10 cast members showcased in our photo gallery (it’s limited to 10 because otherwise you’d be reading names all day), who have NOT been nominated for an Emmy, which one do you think deserves a nod the most? My vote would go to either Jack Gleeson or Charles Dance. How about you?
