Game of Thrones stars turn out for the BAFTA Tea before the Emmys

The annual BAFTA Los Angeles Tea Party, ushering in the awards season, occurred last night and several Game of Thrones notables were in attendance. The stars gathered at The London Hotel in West Hollywood to party and celebrate the Emmys together, with The Hollywood Reporter covering the event.

We’ve rounded up the highlights from the red carpet and party for your Sunday morning enjoyment:

The BAFTA tea also cleared up another mystery: Maisie’s new tattoo, of the date “07.08.09.” She tells Yahoo: “It’s the 7th of August and not the 8th of July — because in the UK we put our dates the other way around,” she explains. “It was the day I found out I got the part in Game of Thrones.” Sophie Turner found out on the same day, hence the matching tattoos.

Also tweeting about the Emmys this weekend: Iwan Rheon, who we can expect to see there.

      Of course I’ll watch.If I don’t fall asleep first lol it’s tough being European during award shows.I’m very positive about Game of Thrones chances tonight.The only categories I’m worried about are the acting ones.Vote spliting may play a chance.

    3. I’m kind of disappointed that I haven’t seen any photos of Maisie and Millie together, that would have been a fun meeting (incidentally, Stranger Things had better win the casting Emmy next year for finding all those wonderful kids).

    4. Matthew The Dragon Knight,

      I’d love to watch the awards tonight but they start at 3 am in my time zone and I have to take 2 college tests tomorrow morning, so I’ll try to sleep early 🙁
      I’m 1000% certain we’ll win Directing, 90% about Best Drama and 60% about Kit lol. I don’t know about the rest…

    5. So glad to see some of the cast having fun and celebrating an amazing season of GoT!! I will be watching and praying for all of the nominees to take home that Emmy!!? Cheering especially hard for Kit! He was amazing this season! And as always hoping GoT wins for Best Drama, Best Directing, and Best Writing! So happy to be a part of this fandom! Good Luck everyone!!❤️??

    6. The awards aren’t shown anywhere live on TV in the UK ( not that I would stay up until stupid o’ clock to watch them personally), so it’s case of trying to find a live stream for those who are hoping to see it. Or just follow tweets or text updates…

      We have only highlights the next day and then only on a minor pay to view channel.

    8. I find Emilia to be one of the most beautiful girls in the business yet for some reason over the past 2-3 years, her styling and fashion has been the worst/dullest I have seen. She looks like she needs a hair brush here and her dress could have belonged to a grandma! Her hair these days either looks messy or bland and her dresses all look unflattering for her figure and body type. Shes definitely not fat but those dresses make her look short and stumpy.

      I miss how gorgeous she used to look in events and on the red carpet few years back (back when she was promoting seasons 1-3 of GOT). With just the right styling, she could look absolutely ethereal.

      On the other hand, I am extremely impressed with Maisie! Shes like the opposite of Emilia. She might not be the prettiest girl out there and her styling was definitely not the best few years ago but recently she has been wearing outfits that are extremely flattering on her. Shes looking absolutely lovely today.

    9. Maisie is totally pretty. Love her quirky dresses! The rocket pattern is so cute. She needs to start her own funky fashion line.

      Looking forward to seeing Lena too! Don’t think she’d skip this one.

    10. Love Maisie’s dress! And Tat Maslany is also wearing space images. I guess syfy/fantasy really IS going mainstream! Thanks, GoT. 😉
      I’ll watch as much as I can stomach (the thank yous get very long sometimes) and will be rooting for Kit and Maisie and company to take all the awards.
      GO GoT!!

    12. Gwen is attending as well. Probably in another monstrosity from Giles.

      Emilia’s styling has been absolutely horrific the last year or so. That hem length is not a short woman’s friend. She looks like an end table with a pink lace cover and with a cousin Itt lamp on top. She’s such a lovely woman, but she needs to wear dresses that are either longer or shorter and her hair should be sleek, not that rumpled basset hound look.

      Maisie’s dress is adorable, especially the print, but that neck line is just…No. “Hi, here’s my sternum, nice to meet you” is not a good look. Hair and makeup are flawless.

      Love Hannah Murray’s pantsuit. Totally stands out in a crowd, but wish she’d gone for a messy pony tail.

      I cannot wait to see tonight’s dresses.

    13. Plugging for all the GoT nominees and wish all five actors could win. Just hope they won’t totally cancel each other out. Though reluctant to comment on fashion etc., I agree with most of you: Maisie looked stunning and Emilia, whom I admire as well, looked, well, almost dowdy. Surely that will change tonight.

    18. I love the way Maisie dresses. Always so age appropriate and fun.

      I hate the way some people seem to feel the need to say things like “Well, she’s not the prettiest but she somehow manages to de-trollify for these events and look shockingly presentable.” The girl is a beauty, amongst other more wonderful qualities like kind to her fans, politically and socially active, a fantastic actress. Can we please stop making derogatory comments about her looks, or comparing her to Sophie, who was lucky enough to be born looking like a supermodel? She’s still a teenager, for crying out loud.

      Sorry for the rant but I saw her picture and thought she looked wonderful and then saw some backhanded compliment about her looks and got annoyed. Carry on.

      I’m not apart of goldderby, but I do check on the forums a lot to pass the time. We can always hope for a upset when it comes to Best writing, but yea the award will either go to Mr Robot, and if not Gane of Thrones/the Americans will get it.
      But Directing should be ours hands down, i’m a little worried that this is downtown Abby last season, they might give it an award, something like supporting actress lol so yea I agree with you.

      I have high hopes for tonight, but I can’t help but think maybe Mr. Robot will take best drama. It has been the darling of critics, and while I prefer GoT, it wouldn’t surprise me if the “latest thing” took the award. I hope I’m wrong. I’m greedy for GoT to take home as many statues as possible. 🙂

      Yeah with 3 Thrones actresses in there and this being Maggie Smith’s last year, I just don’t see how we win that.

      We need 2 Emmy’s to tie Frasier and 3 to beat it. Hopefully that happens tonight

      Mr. Robot has a 40/1 shot of winning. That’s ranked 3rd out of the nominees. The Americans has the best shot with 7/2 odds. That places it in second. GoT is first with 2/5 odds.

      Maggie Smith only won this award once, and lost it the last three years. Last year she wasn’t even nominated, while her co-star Joanne Froggatt was. And multiple nominees has not prevented people from winning at the Emmys. John Spencer was one of four West Wing actors nominated in the category when he won Best Supporting Actor in 2001, to cite just one of many examples.

    25. Jack Bauer 24,

      Well if The Americans has the second best odds than game of thrones is going to win.I adore the show and would deserve it but since it’s a popularity vote no way enough Academy people watch the Americans.On the other hand everybody watches GoT.

      The Academy love giving awards to people in their last year. Especially someone with the pedigree of Dame Maggie Smith. This would also give her another Triple Crown win.

      That actually doesn’t happen that often. It’s more predicted than real, e.g., for every Jon Hamm there’s multiple Steve Carells. And Smith has already won; giving a final award to a past winner who hasn’t won in a while is even rarer (it happened with Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde Pierce for Frasier, for instance).

    30. I actually liked Emilia’s dress – perhaps her hair could have been a little smoother. I’m not really a fan of “quirky” fashion – but that’s just me and ‘twould be a dull world if we all thought alike. I’ve always tended to prefer classic styles.

      Well, I certainly hope GoT does well tonight. I never like to think that something is “in the bag” because that can be setting oneself up for disappointment. Lena deserves the award I think but who can tell?

    32. Hopeful that Kit comes out with the win tonight, but I really think Jonathan Banks will win. He was snubbed last year so I think they’ll give it to him this year. I understand why Kit submitted BotB but imo he showed more range in Oathbreaker and in The Winds of Winter but we’ll see. Fingers crossed. Peter is always great even though the material he was given was weak this season, I seriously wouldn’t be surprised if he won again.

      On the actress side of things, I have to go with Lena. She truly deserves it. I would’ve given Emilia a better chance if her scene with Jorah in The Door or her speech from Blood of my Blood had been in Book of the Stranger instead. Unfortunately for her that wasn’t the case. Maisie was great and probably should’ve been nominated for earlier seasons but like Emilia, I don’t see it this year.

      Hey now, let’s give credit where credit is due: It was that international fashion plate Mr. Dinklage who started this particular trend! Wouldn’t it be great if he wore his #spacepants to the Emmy Awards ceremony? Or at least the afterparty?

    36. I think Maisie’s dress is adorable on her. Emilia’s looks like a tablecloth IMO.

      I don’t think that it’s just the choice of hemline that makes certain dresses look foreshortening on her, though. I don’t understand why so many of these red-carpet photos are shot from that weird downward-pointing angle. It’s really not flattering to anyone – makes people’s heads look unnaturally huge and their legs seem to be tapering down to a tiny point. Look at the photo of Hannah Murray: She looks like her legs are only three-quarters as long as her torso. It’s even more noticeable with guys in tuxes.

      They need to set up those ‘step-and-repeat’ stations in such a way that the photographer has enough room to take a few more steps backward, I think, so that they can get a more natural face-on angle.

    37. Brenatta,

      Sorry, I don’t agree with you.
      Emilia has looked more elegant at other events, I agree. However, she was born with a perfect face, great poise and the grace of a ballerina. That woman can get away with whatever she chooses to wear.

      Maisie, however, dresses for the body she wishes she had, not the real one.
      She is on the short side and wearing full skirts only emphasizes the fact. Long flowing styles would suit her. She definitely need some guidance in the fashion department.
      As an aside, I think she’s very pretty.

    38. I am keeping all my fingers and toes crossed for Lena to win Best Supporting Actress – she should have won last year. I have a feeling Maisie is going to win it. I don’t know why I just have a feeling and I get the impression more people who haven’t watched the show will know who she is and that’s she’s a rising star etc. Or Maggie Smith will win as it’s Downton Abbey’s last year to be eligible and she’s very well known, respected and is legendary. I am getting the feeling if Lena isn’t going she probably isn’t gonna win 🙁 even if winners don’t know beforehand.

      I want GoT to win as many as possible but wouldn’t be terribly bothered if neither Kit or Peter win. Peter hasn’t had anything particularly juicy to work with and has won twice before. Kit has drastically improved but I would find it a bit odd if he won an Emmy when there’s been much stronger actors in the show – Charles Dance, Alfie, Liam etc.

      I love Emilia’s look here she looks stunning. She always looks so happy. Maisie and Hannah look great as well!

    39. I love Maisie’s hair, makeup, shoes, purse, and dress. It’s all fun and age appropriate. The only aspect I don’t like is the plunging neckline. Not because it’s risque (far from it) but because it doesn’t flatter her decolletage.

      I like Emilia’s dress. Maybe the hem is bit long but otherwise I think the dress is pretty and perfect for a luncheon. If that were the dress that she were to wear for the actual ceremony, then I wouldn’t like it so much. But, GODS, the hair. Did someone actually get paid to style her like that?? It looks dry and unkempt, like she just got out of bed.

      Oh Kit, love, that t-shirt under the jacket is fug. But look at him schmoozing with Katzenberg! Work it, KitN.

      I’m nervous for tonight, lol. I hope GOT wins drama. I feel really good about them winning directing. But less so for Lena and Kit. I’d be shocked if Lena doesn’t win but also not shocked if Maggie Smith wins as a final hurrah for Downton Abbey. And I really feel like the Academy will make it up to Jonathan Banks for last year by giving him the win this year. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for Kit and will be pleasantly surprised if he wins.

      I think a lot of the awards GoT won last year was a make up for not winning in S4, when it deserved it way more. Dinklage’s included. Will be interesting if they reward it again this year for a very deserving season. I don’t watch a lot of other TV, so I can’t speak to the competition. I hear the Americans is good (I’ve only seen S1 and thought it was fine), Mr. Robot has jumped the shark but I guess this is for S1, and I thought Downton Abbey had been off the air for two years.

      I’m sure you could look that could or better if you were wearing 30K of borrowed or free merch and paid a few thou to have your hair and makeup done for the event. 🙂

      Emilia has a ton of natural beauty going for her, and yet, with all the money and resources available to her, she goes out looking like that.

      I shudder.

      Long, flowing skirts would conceal Maisie’s best physical asset: trim, muscular, shapely legs (though the unflattering angle of that particular photo kind of makes them look like they don’t match). At her age, I think that the short skirts that she favors suit her looks and style very well.

    44. Firannion,

      I’m with you on this. Maisie’s dress lengths are perfect. She isn’t tall enough to pull off long and flowy. Sophie could. Maisie’s outfits are generally adorable and age appropriate. I am just not a fan of the plunging wide neckline. Maisie does have great legs and that orange is great on her. Her red carpet looks have been mostly spot on.

      Emilia is pretty hit and miss. (Remembering the Bride of Bram Stoker Nun’s Habit of a few years ago.) I think Emilia needs to just fire her stylist. She doesn’t have a designer contract, that I know of. There is no reason for her to be wearing those dresses.

    45. Can’t help noticing that GRRM’s shiny party vest has a Greek key pattern. And we all know that he practically lives in a Greek fisherman’s cap. Is there some significance to this, I wonder? To the best of my knowledge, he is not of Greek ancestry at all. Has he been signed to play Poseidon in an Aquaman sequel?

      Me neither, and I’m seeing it all over the place these days. It looks vertically ‘unbalanced’ on a small bosom and just plain tawdry on a very ample one. Not too many women can pull it off.

      I don’t tend to mind them, but they’re tricky. If a woman is too well-endowed, she ends up looking somewhat trashy, imo, and if a woman has too little with which to work, it really needs some kind of accessory to break up the large swath of skin.

Do these ‘hosts’ know anyone besides reality TV ‘stars’ and the Modern Family cast? And I guess Rancic must end every interview with “who are you wearing”? And why did she pronounce just “joost”? Argh!

    49. I absolutely love Maisie’s dress. Short styles fit her. Not only age appropriate but she is a shorty. Anything too long (unless it’s a bit form-fitting) would swallow her up. The short skirt breaks it up and doesn’t emphasize her tiny frame. Plus, she does have great dancer legs. She would be crazy to not show them off.
      Emilia always looks stunning from the neck up. Her dresses usually don’t do her any favors, in my opinion.

      Was watching the E! Fashion Police pre-show and the host were discussing the “style evolution” of the nominees. It’s always so funny to listen to.
      The male host (Brad something) was talking about the GoT nominees and made a comment about Emilia, or maybe it was Lena, and what she should could be wearing could “shock the world”. Kid you not.
      Aliens invading would shock the world, not what an actress is wearing. I understand it’s a big industry but really? I always look forward to seeing what my favorites are wearing but a crappy looking outfit isn’t going to make me stop being a fan. Just like a fantastic dress isn’t going to make me proclaim “icon” status. I just want to see nice clothes that I will never be able to wear or afford.

      I think the supporting acting awards will be very early in the broadcast, so I hope there will be a thread set-up for live reactions?
      I am still feeling pretty positive for GoT’s chances in the acting categories. I am hoping Maisie/Lena don’t cancel each other out. In the grand scheme, so much of these awards are bunk but I really hope to see one of them get the recognition since the Emmys seem to hold more weight than other award shows.

    50. IG Stark,

      I agree. I look more like Sophie – tall, fair, light eyes, blonde fine hair – and believe me it doesn’t take much to look washed out and tired. She can be made up to look quite stunning. But she’s like many other standard starlets to me. Maisie is a knockout with striking features, and I’ve always envied dark hair. They’re just so completely different, and have different attributes that can’t really be compared to each other. It’s not a contest at any rate.

    51. OMG it’s Sophie on the red carpet. Still blonde. I love her dress, jewelry, and makeup. Her hair’s a little too messy. And she just showed her new tattoo. She was adorable!

    52. Listening to Sophie talk about the matching tattoo she got with Maisie makes me think one of their characters is not going to survive season 7.

      I think the supporting acting awards will be very early in the broadcast, so I hope there will be a thread set-up for live reactions?

      All the drama awards are at the end of the broadcast (it goes Comedy > Variety/Miniseries/Other Stuff > Drama).

    54. Now it’s Emilia’s turn. She fixed her hair, lol. I’m not diggin’ the dress, though. The color is just wrong. I see the smokey eye makeup is popular with the GOT ladies tonight.

      Pedro Pascal is there. It looks like he’s Sarah Paulson’s date.

      The dress style is beautiful, not crazy about the sheer part but my lord, she looks great as a blonde. I actually think the blonde does far more things for her, as oppose to the red. The blonde makes her pretty blue eyes stand out. I know it’s not Sansa-esque but she really should stick with/go back to it once the show is done.

      ETA: Took another look…I really like the dress! Her style is more Hollywood glam and it is sexy without being cheesy.

      Can’t wait to see Maisie. Saw a pic earlier of her bright green eyeshadow. I love that her style is playful.

      Sean C.: All the drama awards are at the end of the broadcast (it goes Comedy > Variety/Miniseries/Other Stuff > Drama).

      Meh…crap! This is forcing me to go to the gym. I was hoping to get the awards out of the way early. Thanks for the info!

      She’s a natural blonde, so I see no reason why she wouldn’t once the show’s over for her. And I agree – the blonde hair makes her green eyes just pop. Mesmerizing.

    57. I would love to see Kit and Lena win but not sure that’s going to happen. Jonathan Banks will take it. He was snubbed and Kit is relatively new to this. And supporting actress. GOT ladies between themselves will take a lot of votes but I have this sneaky feeling that Emilia is gonna win.

    58. I saw on twitter a pic of Rory (rawr! looking good), Hannah (looove her dress and makeup), Iwan (handsome!), and Conleth (adorable; and definitely bald now). I’m surprised they’re attending the ceremony. Last year, not many attended.

      Yeah…you know it’s fun to see what the Ladies are wearing but the moment Rory is spotted, I could give a damn about anyone but him. Furry, delicious beast.

      Saw Maisie…love the make-up but the dress is definitely different. Looks more like something for a garden party or wedding but it does suit her playful tastes. And I do love the eye make-up. That girl has the biggest, most gorgeous dark eyes. Need to see a full pic of the dress.

    60. Ravyn,

      Her eyes are pale grey, rather than green. It’s quite interesting how different they can look depending on the light, etc.; they often look blue onscreen (which makes sense, since grey eyes are a variant of blue).

    61. I’m uncomfortable discussing people’s appearance when other things are so much more important. But–I think Sophie is very tall and quite elegant, with a very symmetrical face. She’s conventionally beautiful, but doesn’t have much expression usually. Maisie is well-formed but with a pretty, rather unconventional face which is generally full of lively emotion. An actor mate who is a casual fan of GoT predicts Sophie will get roles based on her beauty and conforming to a lot of the Hollywood stereotypes. Maisie will swim upstream as she gets older because of her tininess, but based on her character acting skills will get plenty of roles, though probably more in British and quirky shows. Who knows? I must say I find their friendship very endearing. And I wish GoT good fortune in the award wars to come.

    62. kinda dispapointed no watching the emmy post….had such fun last year and was looking forward to it this year with so many noms for GOT

    63. I am a bit worried about GoT in the acting categories, there might be too much vote splitting.

      I think GoT were smart to only use the Battle of the Bastards for writing and directing, no vote splitting there.

    64. Them getting rid of ranked voting is definitely killing the series with multiple nominations per category. Veep‘s vote was split three ways in the Comedy Directing category and they lost to Transparent, which was only nominated once. That’s probably also how Master of None beat Veep in Writing.

      The Door is up for Directing too.

    67. Okay here we have a win with more then one nomination in a category. Things seems to becoming more normal now.

      I am still very surprised that Lena Heady didn’t show up.

    69. Flayed Potatoes: She planted wildfire beneath the stage in case someone else wins her category

      That would work fantastically for the Emmys!

      We have another vote splitting result. Well, at least the Emmys are entertaining tonight.

    70. let’s be happy that we only have two for directing lol
      at least we have one for writing XD the one I was iffy about, would be funny to win one for the category I wasn’t sure about XD

    71. I’m seeing more upsets than the predicted winners. So far the only the non-surprises have been Julia Louis Dreyfuss and Jeffrey Tambor. Sigh, I’m worried about GOT’s chances.

      I really wanted Tracey Ellis Ross to win in the comedy category. She is so good on Black-ish. I like JLD, she is hilarious, but it was such a great year for Anthony Anderson and TER.
      I am not even worried about GoT in the acting categories. I think Kit will get it. The ladies I am more unsure about. While I am rooting for all of them, I would really like to see Lena get it. If not her, Maisie. I wouldn’t throw anything at the tv if Emilia snags it but think the other two had a better season (even with Arya’s abrupt, strange end to the HoBW plot).

    73. Okay, People vs. O.J. overcomes a second three-way vote split. So it’s not impossible, though I suspect the drama categories, where there are more pre-existing fandoms, may be different. We shall see.

    74. I think we can beat our record for more wins in a year, I think we had 11 last year, we can win 12 tonight with best Drama 🙂
      can we do it Thronies ?

    76. Holy crap, they’re replaying the Emmys and this time I paid attention to Kimmel’s intro. He said that during certain scenes of GOT, the audience can masturbate, then the camera panned to Kit in the audience, and Kimmel was like “oh, that’s what I’m talking about”. LOL wow.

    77. Hannah Murray is so darn cute. Emilia is lovely but her new hair color washes her out big time and she looks tired, I didn’t even recognize her. Joanna Froggat and Kit look very elegant together.

    78. It’s cute that Sophie and Maisie wanted to get matching tattoos, like the cast members of The Fellowship of the Ring. But…strings of numbers on the forearm? I get it that they’re young, and that there aren’t many survivors of Nazi concentration camps left walking around, and maybe neither of them has ever met one who wasn’t wearing long sleeves. But surely they learned about the Holocaust in school (or from their on-set tutors). How can it not occur to them that this choice of placement will strike many people as macabre and distasteful? Seems a bit clueless to me.
