The Cast Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ Cleans Up Well For the Emmys

Did you know that Game of Thrones tied Homeland last night for the most Emmy wins with six? The difference, of course, is that Homeland’s wins came in prominent categories, while Game of Thrones won mostly in the technical categories (Art Direction, Costumes, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, and Make-Up). The 12 nominations, however, assured that many of the cast members from the show would be in attendance, and for me, it’s always fun to see the Game of Thrones cast all dressed up. Some of them are barely recognizable with suits and dresses on. Who the hell knew that George R.R. Martin didn’t always look like an oversized Hobbit hobo? (And yes, that is him with Gail Simmons from Top Chef, who also posed with Peter Dinklage). So, for funsies, here’s the Game of Thrones cast all cleaned up for the ceremony last night.

Creator/Producer David Benioff with his wife, Amanda Peete

Peter Dinklage with his wife, Erica Schmidt

Richard Madden, who plays Robb Stark

Emilia Clarke, sans Dragons

Emilia Clarke with, according to ONTD, potentially her new boyfriend, Seth MacFarlane, which is another reason to hate Seth MacFarlane

Lena Heady, who has never looked so hot

Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark)

George R.R. Martin with Top Chef’s Gail Simmons

Gail Simmons again, with Peter Dinklage

For this reason alone, they should find a place for Olivia Munn on next season
