Peter Dinklage won the Emmy Award for best supporting actor in a drama series for his role of Tyrion Lannister in HBO’s fantasy epic Game of Thrones at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony. The award for the final season turned out to be his fourth win for the role and his second consecutive win. With the recent win, Peter has set a record for the most trophies ever for supporting actor in a drama series.
“It’s been about 10 years, all said and done, since the moment I met Dave and Dan until right now. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I knew David and Dan were quite brilliant. We did nothing but sweat, we did nothing but laugh. Dave and Dan, we literally walked through fire and ice for you, literally. And I would do it all again in a heartbeat," he said in a speech, as quoted by a Hollywood entertainment portal.
