Three friends driven apart by regional strife and socioeconomic differences have been brought together under unlikely circumstances. Against all odds, they have united as one for a magical, noble cause.
At least, that's how it would be if this was the land of Westeros, or Game of Thrones IRL. Instead, the actors behind the roles of loyal Samwell Tarly, damaged Theon Greyjoy, and clever Lord Varys have met up on the Emmys red carpet.
Meanwhile, Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) is up for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama, and both Lena Heady (Cersei Lannister) and Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) may be honored as Best Supporting Actress in a Drama.
To the same token, AMC's Mad Men is vying for many of the same honors, and is presently in its last year as a series.
Who will prevail?
