Game of Thrones is kicking off the Emmys with a bang. The HBO fantasy series won the first award it was up for of the night: Best Supporting Actor, which went to Peter Dinklage.
Dinklage took to the stage to thank his showrunners, his wife, his on-screen brother and, of course, the man who started it all: George R.R. Martin.
“Thank you Dave
for changing my life. l cannot walk down the street anymore. You are honestly the most talent amazing people I know besides my wife Erica, who I think I forgot to thank a couple years ago,” said Dinklage in his acceptance speech. “Thanks to my brother from another mother Nikolaj
. I love you and I share this with you because you’re an amazing handsome brother. And George R.R. Martin for creating this whole thing.”
