The series finale for Game of Thrones is far from the most beloved of the series, but that didn’t stop HBO from submitting it for a Best Writing Emmy. As The Wrap reports, the network has submitted “The Iron Throne,” the final episode of the series, for the 2019 Emmy Awards in the Best Writing category.

More interesting is the fact that “The Iron Throne” is the only episode that was submitted of the six episodes in the final season. Episodes like “Winterfell” and “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms,” while more beloved by critics and fans, were not submitted.

The network also submitted Miguel Sapochnik (“The Long Knight”), David Nutter (“The Last of the Starks”) and David Weiss & D.B. Benioff (“The Iron Throne”) for Best Directing, while the following submissions were made in the acting categories:

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series Kit Harington
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series: Emilia Clarke
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series: Alfie Allen, Pilou Asbaek, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Richard Dormer
Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series: Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Carice van Houten, Gwendoline Christie
