Peter Dinklage wins Emmy Award for his role in Game of Thrones!

This is great news indeed for fans of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Peter Dinklage, who plays fan favorite character Tyrion Lannister in the HBO TV Series adaptation of Game of Thrones, takes home a well deserve prize and won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series! Via The Hollywood Reporter, he gives his reaction to the win, and aptly remarks that "I've learned to love being in a TV show" as a result. You can read the entire story here via this link to THR's post.

Since the series premiered early this year and his name appeared on the list of Emmy nominations, I firmly believed that he would definitely win the coveted prize, since his role as the dwarfish Tyrion proved to be such brilliant casting. Dinklage portrayed the role with clarity and craftiness, and he displayed the imp's talents so well in the series that it isn't any wonder how people favored the character immediately in his first appearance.

For those in the dark as to how truly remarkable a performance this is, here's a character feature posted by HBO on YouTube about Tyrion Lannister and what actor Peter Dinklage thinks about his role.

Here's my favorite scene with Tyrion from episode 2 "The Kingsroad", in which he has a pivotal conversation with Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington, which builds up the ladder of friendship between the two very different men who find they share a lot in common.
