Alfie Allen, Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Carice van Houten, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Maisie Williams, all nominated for Emmy awards, reunited on stage to present the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie — the honor went to Patricia Arquette for her role in Hulu’s The Act.

The entire theater gave the award-winning ensemble cast a standing ovation when they emerged on stage.

Before presenting the award, a video montage of GoT aired.

“As much as we wish the show would have gone on forever our time had come,” Williams, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, said. “Now we have a chance to thank all of those who watched.”

Her costar Turner, who is also nominated in the same category, added: “It’s amazing how the entire last season was for us.”

Game of Thrones received a total of 32 Emmy nominations. A record 18.4 million viewers watched the final episode, which aired on May 12.
