And he did it again: Peter Dinklage took home the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Tyrion Lannister , which certainly made up for any sadness over Game of Thrones losing out to the (exceptional) Homeland for Best TV Drama.
Thanking George R.R. Martin, executive producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss, and more, Dinklage finished his acceptance speech by noting he was thinking of Martin Henderson, whom he suggested viewers Google; Henderson is a dwarf in Britain who received serious injuries when he was attacked in apparent “dwarf tossing” incident.
Here’s Dinklage’s acceptance speech below:
Backstage Dinklage made some further remarks, and touched on what Tyrion would be doing in the second season of Game of Thrones. Like GRRM, the producers, and others, he also indicates that A Storm of Swords will take two seasons to cover according to “hearsay”, but we think that’s solid (the rumors of back-to-back filming on seasons 3 and 4, on the other hand, we’re more dubious about).
HBO’s official After Party saw Jason Momoa, Lena Headey, and Emilia Clarke join Dinklage, GRRM, Benioff and Weiss, and it looks like a fun time was had. We’re particularly keen on this photo of Momoa with Martin—you can imagine a headlock is about to follow with a demand that he bring Drogo back into the story!—and another with Momoa goofing around with Peter Dinklage and Parris (GRRM’s wife).
