Game of Thrones was the most nominated show at this year’s Emmy Awards which was a fitting tribute to a series which has been such a part of our lives for eight years.

The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences chose to honor the HBO series by showing footage from its final season before welcoming the cast on stage.

Well, at least some of it.

Standing before the audience to present the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series Or Movie were Alfie Allen, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Gwendoline Christie, Nikolaj Coster-Waldeau, and Carice Van Houten.

Shortly before Allen began speaking, the camera panned to the audience where we saw four other Thrones actors — Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Liam Cunningham, John Bradley, and Conleth Hill.

Many have questioned why the quartet was not up there with their castmates.

While no official answer was given, it was assumed that those invited on stage were simply those who had been nominated for their roles in the various acting categories.

Either way, Game of Thrones was awarded Outstanding Drama Series, meaning the entire cast got to come up at the end after all!
