Peter Dinklage etched his name into the history books on Sunday night, after an impressive night at the Primetime Emmy Awards.

Dinklage, who was nominated for the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, took the award home, thanks to his powerful portrayal of Tyrion Lannister on the final season of hit HBO series Game of Thrones. Thanks to his win, the New Jersey actor became the first person to take home the coveted plaque four times.

There really was no argument concerning who was going to win the Supporting Actor award. Peter Dinklage was an excellent feature in a season 8 that was considered by many as being a bit of a letdown.

As he received his award, he thanked everyone on the Game of Thrones castmates and crew. “I do not know what I’m going to say, but I start! I consider myself lucky to be part of a group that advocated tolerance, diversity, and inclusion so much,” he started.

Continuing, he said, “It’s been like ten years that I met the creators of the show for the first time … I did not know where I was going, but I knew it was going to be amazing.”

Game of Thrones did pretty well also, winning the award for Outstanding Drama Series. Not a bad way to go at all.
