To us, this seems like the year when Nikolaj Coster-Waldau finally takes home the Emmy. We also expect Diana Rigg to score a win, because she made the coolest exit from the show that is known for its brutal exits. Sadly, HBO’s first time considerations to leading actor categories for Game of Thrones, Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke, didn’t make the cut. Looks like the Targaryens were low on luck, while all three Lannister siblings got nominated.

The 70th Annual Emmy Awards will be held on September 17, and aired on NBC. How many of these nominations do you think Game of Thrones will convert into awards? Tell us in the comments, down below!
