The final season of Game of Thrones received a record-breaking amount of 32 nominations.

The official Game of Thrones account paid tribute to each actor nominated, including the three who put themselves forward.

Game of Thrones was the world's biggest television show for almost a decade, so it's no surprise that the show had way too much talent. The site found that The Iron Throne has the lowest IMDb rating of any television episode ever nominated for that Emmy.

Kit Harrington earned a nomination for lead actor in a drama series for his character, Jon Snow.

Although I was sorely disappointed after watching the series finale, I think an Emmy nomination is well deserved.

The Game of Thrones actor, who played Brienne of Tarth in the series, wasn't chosen by the network for submission so she chose to do it herself instead. Alfie Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy, also submitted himself for best supporting actor.

The truth is, if these three hadn't self-submitted, the show wouldn't have broken the record for the most nominations in a season. We had reported about how five actors submitted their own nominations directly.

For the top prize "Chernobyl" will have four competitors: "Escape at Dannemora" (Showtime); "Fosse/Verdon" (FX); "Sharp Objects" (HBO) and "When They See Us" (Netflix). All are first-time Emmy nominees and were considered big surprises when nominations were released Tuesday. No doubt they deserve it, especially because they have been voted in despite the submissions being unofficial. She's competing in a category that's notable for its diversity, including past victor Viola Davis for "How to Get Away with Murder" and repeat nominee Sandra Oh for "Killing Eve", who has a second chance to become the first actress of Asian descent to win the trophy.
