When you woke up Monday morning there was only one man in the history of television who had ever won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series three times. His name was Aaron Paul and he was on a little show you might have heard of called Breaking Bad. However, that changed Monday night when Peter Dinklage told Paul to move the hell over, bitch, and took home his third Emmy for his performance as Tyrion Lannister on HBO's Game of Thrones.
Winning an Emmy is a big deal (unless you're Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who has an entire house full of 'em), and I'm sure Dinklage is super excited to become just the second man to accomplish this impressive feat, especially since Tyrion didn't really have a ton to do this past season — don't hate, you know it's true — but Dinklage actually holds his own Emmy record too. Earlier this summer, he became the only man to ever be nominated seven times in the supporting actor category.
On his way to the podium this year Dinklage defeated his co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who may or may not portray the best Lannister in Westeros. In a brief, yet touching acceptance speech, Dinklage gave a shout-out to Coster-Waldau, saying, "Thank you to my brother from another mother, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. I love you, and I share this with you because you are an amazing, handsome brother."
Now go drink something, Dink. You deserve it.
