Oh, NO they didn’t! The 2016 Emmys went off without a hitch, but they did make one GIANT mistake! When Kit Harington’s name came across the screen, it had an extra ‘R’ and the internet went wild! Some even said it was a major hint that he didn’t win Supporting Actor! See the furious reactions here!
Uh oh! The 2016 Emmys caused the internet to create chaos Sept. 18, when they added an additional “R” to Kit Harington‘s name! The actor’s name was being announced for his nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in Game Of Thrones when fans went nuts. He unfortunately did not take home the Emmy gold for the nom, but that didn’t take away the spotlight from shining on him. Although the 29-year-old playfully laughed it off with an adorable smirk on his face, Twitter users were sure to come to his defense. See their intense reactions below!

Kit Harington didn't win an Emmy this year and they misspelled his name. They know nothing. Sad.

I could at least fix all their continuity problems. And spell Kit Harington's name right.

He didn’t win and they can’t spell his name. Poor Kit Harington. The #Emmys gave him an extra “R”

Aside from the Kit drama, it was a HUGE night for GOT, who had the most total nominations. The hit show won big, taking home Emmys for Outstanding Drama, Directing and Writing! They even broke the all-time record of primetime Emmy wins, with 38 awards! Congrats, Game Of Thrones!
