The Game of Thrones cast played no games when it came to the purple-carpet fashion at the 2019 Emmy Awards.

The critically acclaimed show was up for a whopping 10 Primetime Emmy awards this year. The entire cast took home the gold for Outstanding Drama Series.

Meanwhile, Peter Dinklage, who played Tyrion Lannister, was the only cast member to take home a statue for acting; the show was up for eight additional acting nods.

Christie became the talk of the town after HBO, understandably overwhelmed with the sheer talent of the show, failed to nominate her. Instead, she put her own name in the draw and won herself a spot on the nominee list.

Kit Harington, Dinklage, Alfie Allen and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau are all up for best supporting actor.

All eyes were on the cast members as they took their places on the purple carpet one after the other, with Harington, 32, looking particularly handsome in a black-and-white suit sans tie. This marked his first appearance since announcing he was heading for treatment for personal issues.

Mother of Dragons (Clarke) looked stunning in deep V-neck teal dress by Valentino, sporting notably longer hair. Meanwhile, Christie dazzled in what can only be described as Jesus-inspired garb by Gucci.

Lena Headey stunned in floral Brock Collection gown, while Turner’s structured Louis Vuitton and Williams’s black jewelled asymmetrical gown made the chicest opposites side-by-side.

Dinklage looked handsome in a black-and-white suit and was joined by his wife, playwright Erica Schmidt, while Allen sported a tailored navy suit and Coster-Waldau, a printed mustard-yellow sport coat and satin pants.
