Audreythe2nd July 17, 2015 Share July 17, 2015 I like Emilia Clarke too, a lot. Not that I think loads of acting noms and awards should be heaped on her, but I think she brings exactly what needs to be brought to the character of Daenerys, and I can't imagine anyone else in the role. I would bet money that she and Dinklage were submitted for the same scene, or that their submitted scenes were the ones they had together. Again, not that either of those scenes are awards worthy in terms of acting, but I do remember being insanely excited while watching them because they had great chemistry and they were two important characters coming together after five seasons of never once meeting. Maybe the voters were also fanboying and fangirling all over Tyrion and Daenerys being in the same room as I was... but more likely they were just repeat noms of the principal actors of an insanely popular show who had already been recognized before. An automatic thing. At least Lena Headey deserves it. George RR Martin posted on his livejournal about being really proud and happy for the show, but wishing Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner (among others) would also be recognized one of these days, which I'm sorry to say I don't think will ever, ever happen.
