Peter Dinklage, a.k.a. Tyrion Lannister, just won his second Emmy Award!
Our favorite (or not so much) House of Lannister family member has just received a second Emmy Award for his outstanding acting skills in real life. He started acting back in the distant 1991 and came to prominence in 2003 with his role in comedy-drama The Station Agent. Since then Dinklage has starred in more than 60 projects as an actor, he has produced 4 movies and has won many awards.
Back in 2011 he won his very first Emmy Award for his role of Tyrion Lannister, as well as a Golden Globe. He was voted Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of the popular TV series character. The 46 year old actor brought home his second Emmy after he was voted an Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. His runner-ups were Jonathan Banks (Better Call Saul), Jim Carter (Downton Abbey), Alan Cumming (The Good Wife), Michael Kelly (House of Cards), and Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline). Dinklage received his award during the ceremony, which took place on the 20th of September in the Microsoft Theater located in Los Angeles, California, US. Game of Thrones actually won a total of 12 Emmy Awards that same day, which set a new record for the popular TV series!
Game of Thrones’ 5th season ended in June and left fans from all across the globe baffled at the unexpected outcome of the final 10th episode. The upcoming 6th season is set to air in April 2016 and although there are tons of rumors about the plot of the upcoming season and there are several secrets the cast and crew have shared with us, everybody is still asking many questions on what’s going to happen next. Oh, well, we’ll just have to wait and see.
