Don’t worry, you didn’t miss the Emmys on TV tonight if you weren’t paying attention! The Emmy Awards is such a lengthy process that it’s become a three-day affair, with the creative and technical awards spanning two days, announced at separate ceremonies a week before the big live on-air ceremony where we’ll see categories such as Best Actor and Actress in a Drama named. The Creative Arts Emmys took place this weekend, and since Game of Thrones landed a record-breaking 32 nominations for the final season, the show has already bagged an amazing TEN Emmys before the live ceremony has even begun.

Carice van Houten was in attendance, as a nominee in one of the categories announced at tonight’s ceremony; both she and Alfie Allen served as presenters as well.
