Peter Dinklage is making history at the 2019 Emmy Awards.
The “Game Of Thrones” actor took home his fourth trophy in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category, setting a new awards record. Dinklage previously won in the category in 2011, 2015 and 2018 for his role as Tyrion Lannister on the HBO fan-favourite series.
“I count myself so fortunate to be a member of a community that is nothing but all about tolerance and diversity, because no other place I’d be standing on a stage like this,” he said during his acceptance speech.
Dinklage, 50, was up against his “Game Of Thrones” co-stars Alfie Allen and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, as well as Jonathan Banks and Giancarlo Esposito for “Better Call Saul”, Michael Kelly for “House Of Cards” and Chris Sullivan for “This Is Us”.
“Game Of Thrones” was nominated for a total of 14 Emmys on Sunday. The series picked up an additional 10 technical awards at the Creative Arts Emmys, held last weekend.
