Peter Dinklage continues to clean up this award season! Dinklage won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor for a TV series, mini-series and movie for his portrayal of Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones.
His acceptance speech was, once again, largely unplanned. Although he did make a point to thank George R. R. Martin this time around after forgetting to thank him in his Emmy acceptance speech. He also mentioned English actor Martin Henderson, a dwarf who was paralyzed after some idiot attacked him by ‘tossing’ him. A sad story, but cool of Dinklage to give him a shout out. Here’s the vid of his speech:
Unfortunately, Game of Thrones lost in its other cateogry of the night as Homeland won the Golden Globe for best drama series. Ah well, at least we took home one statue tonight.
Winter Is Coming: Big congrats once again to Peter! By the time this show is over, he may have a few more of these. Hopefully we can get a few of the other actors up there in the coming season(s)!
