Game of Thrones Cast Celebrates Record-Breaking Win (And a Birthday) After 2015 Emmys Domination
Game of Emmys?
So, it’s only natural that the crew would party it up, Thrones-style.
The stars attended HBO’s Official 2015 Emmy Party in West Hollywood, California, on Sunday to celebrate the record-breaking win. Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the series, danced the night away with a tennis-shoe-clad Maisie Williams (Arya Stark).
The teens were seen snapping plenty of selfies. Meanwhile, Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), shimmied to the music along with actress Robin Tunney.
GoT co-creator David Benioff, who took home the Emmy for outstanding writing in a drama series, and his wife, actress Amanda Peet, were at the party along with another winner: Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister).
Dinklage hoisted his Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series in the air as he entered the party, shouting “Yeah!”
The biggest Thrones attraction, however, was author and screenwriter George R. R. Martin. His Emmy sat on a table beside a special birthday cake for him – he, like the Emmy Awards, turned 67 on Sunday.
The fantasy show is now the most winning series in Emmy history. The outstanding drama series win was the first for the show and it also makes GoT the first fantasy program to take home the award in this category.
