'Shame!': Game of Thrones Fans are Super Pissed About Cersei Lannister Not Winning at Emmys

"Shame! Shame! Shame!"

Considered one of the most complex characters in the Game of Thrones universe and perhaps the television history, Lena Headey's portrayal of villainous Cersei Lannister had to stay content with a nomination in the category of supporting actress for a drama at 71st Primetime Emmys.

Lena, along with Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Masie Williams (Arya Stark) and Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) lost out to Julia Garner of 'Ozark', much to the disappointment of fans of the fantasy series created by David Benioff and Dan Weiss.

In fact, the only two wins that came Game of Thrones' way on the big night were in categories: 1) Outstanding Drama Series 2) Best supporting actor in a drama for Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister).

But Lena's loss at Emmys was a hard spill to swallow for the fans who had witnessed a "true evil character" in the course of eight seasons of the show. From Missandei's beheading to blowing up The Great Sept Of Baelor, Cersei Lannister had done it all.

Naturally, GoT loyalists came out in huge numbers on Twitter to express their disbelief over Lena's loss.

Sadly enough, this isn't the only time followers of Cersei Lannister have had to face disappointment this year.

In an anti-climactic ending for such a powerful character, Cersei died when the Red Keep collapsed on top of her, burned down by Daenerys' last dragon. She died in the arms of her brother and lover, Jamie Lannister. That her character had been built over the eight seasons as a horrific villain, many viewers opined that Cersei deserved a "better death" that fit her mighty status.
