Emilia Clarke’s character Daenerys is gunning for the Iron Throne in Games of Thrones. While it’s not yet hers, the actress was queen of Instagram at the 68th annual Emmy Awards on Sunday night.
After peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were distributed to the crowd by the Stranger Things kids, Clarke took the chance to snap a picture of the note written by host Jimmy Kimmel’s mother, Joan. The note reads: “Have fun tonight! Win or lose, your mom will always love you. Don’t get drunk.” Clarke greatly appreciated the note.
“THANK YOU JIMMY AND JIMMYS MUM!! @emmys20l6 #mymammaandineededalilsugar,” she wrote. As of this posting, the post has gained over 540,000 likes.
Clarke also had the most-viewed video, creating a head-rocking Boomerang while she was en route to the Los Angeles event. The video alone racked up over 2.7 million views.
Aziz Ansari’s tribute to his parents was the second most popular post, with over 164,000 likes. “Just wanted to thank these guys for giving me everything and more! #Emmy,” the Master of None star and creator wrote.
During the Emmys, 7.5 million people had 21 million interactions on Instagram. See some other popular highlights below.
