Turner received the Emmy nomination on Tuesday, July 16 while she was on her honeymoon in the Maldives with her new husband, Joe Jonas.

Sophie Turner shares sweet message with fans
Turner decided to react to the nomination via an Instagram Stories post. She posted a screenshot of her official nomination, which was for the category of outstanding supporting actress in a drama series.
“I’m beyond humbled. I truly never thought that this would ever happen,” said Turner. “This is the best farewell to the show that has been my life for the past 10 years.”
Turner congratulated her fellow ‘Game of Thrones’ actresses
Sophie also made sure to congratulate her fellow actresses and co-stars for their nominations as well. Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey, and Maisie Williams were all nominated for the same category as Turner.
“Also YES QUEEN to these queens; @gwendolineuniverse @iamlenaheadey @maisie_williams,” posted Turner. She is clearly over the moon for herself and her friends and fellow actresses.
Turner’s character Sansa, came full circle from timid little girl to queen in her own right in Game of Thrones. No one expected to see her character last to the end in such a way. She got her own revenge by surpassing and outliving many that treated her harshly. She also initiated justice against her enemies, such as Petyr Baelish and stood up for herself and fellow Northerners.
Joe Jonas congratulated his new wife on her nomination
Joe Jonas, Turner’s new husband, shared a heartfelt message on Instagram about her Emmy nomination. He clearly couldn’t be prouder of his blushing bride.
“Emmy nominated @sophiet I’m so incredibly proud of you,” said Jonas with a picture of the two together. The adoring image accompanying the message shows Turner with her feet in Jonas’ lap. The two are so clearly happy and in love. The news of Turner’s nomination couldn’t have come at a better time for her while she was on her honeymoon.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner were just married for the second time
The happy couple just recently tied the knot for the second time in France at a chateau. They wed in Las Vegas on May 1st after the Billboard Music Awards. Guests at the second ceremony included Jonas’ brothers, sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra, and model Ashley Graham. Maisie Williams, Turner’s best friend, was there as maid of honor as well.
Just a few weeks before the nuptials, Turner and her friends celebrated with a bachelorette party. Maisie Williams was also in attendance for the fun. The group reportedly stopped in places like Spain, Prague, Berlin, and of course the Jonas Brothers concert in London.
