The 5 best and 5 worst moments from the 2019 Emmys
Best: The outpouring of love for Gwendoline Christie
Win or lose, there’s no denying television viewers have a lot of love for Sir Brienne of Tarth herself, Gwendoline Christie— and those in-house at the 2019 Emmys made sure to vocalize their adoration.
The actress, who scored a nod in the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category after nominating herself, hit the stage early on during Sunday night’s broadcast along with the rest of her Game of Thrones cast members. Though the cast received a warm welcome on stage as a collective unit, the cheers from the audience when it was Christie’s turn to speak were so loud, it forced the actress to pause in the middle of her lines.
