If you watched the Emmy’s last night, you already know there were plenty of gasp and cringe-worthy moments. Luckily, there were also plenty of aww-inspiring and sweet moments, too! Take for example the advice Jimmy Kimmel’s mom gave actress Emilia Clarke, in the form of a note, no less. Because what is more “mom” than giving someone loving advice and encouragement in the form of a handwritten note?

Emilia Clarke, who stars in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, looked pretty stunning at the Emmy’s last night in her Atelier Versace Gown.

More impressive than her dress and makeup, however, was her genuine and sweet reaction to this lovely note from Jimmy Kimmel’s mom.

While we’ve never been quite as lucky as Clarke to actually attend the Emmy’s and be nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama series for her role on Game of Thrones, we feel it’s safe to say that this advice is pretty good no matter where you are. After all, whether you win or lose, you are always worthy of love and respect. And if you’re in a high-pressure situation, like we imagine the Emmy’s can be, it’s probably best to avoid getting a little too tipsy.

Even though Clarke ultimately did not win, it’s clear from her Instagram that she took the note to heart and still had an awesome time at the Emmy’s. Just look at this smile for yourself below:

Can anything be sweeter or more genuine than the kind of smile where your eyes are closed? We think not!
