In what has to be considered an upset, Peter Dinklage has won the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama category, beating out stiff competition from John Slattery, Walton Goggins, Andre Braugher, Alan Cumming, and Josh Charles. There was a clear trend among critics on-line liking Dinklage and often selecting him for their “should win” hedges, but still, the money was on someone else winning…
And as it turns out, the oddsmakers were wrong. A well-deserved victory for Dinklage, who brought Tyrion Lannister to vivid life. Congratulations, Peter! And congratulations to all the winners, especially Mad Men for their taking Best Drama Series—it may be a bit of a broken record, but the show’s fourth season was amazing.
Game of Thrones finishes the award season with two wins out of thirteen nominations, for Main Title Design and Best Supporting Actor. Hopefully the first of many to come! Below, we’ve collected a few photos and a brief red-carpet interview with Dinklage.
