Peter Dinklage Thanks ‘Game Of Thrones’ Producers For "Changing My Life" - Emmys

Peter Dinklage Thanks ‘Game Of Thrones’ Producers For

Peter Dinklage and Game of Thrones were the king of the castle last night at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, but in many many ways, it was a bittersweet experience.

"Thank you Dave [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] for changing my life", said Peter in his acceptance speech.

When it came to which celebs received the most mentions, Canadian "Killing Eve" star Sandra Oh was the most-talked-about, with Betty White, Darren Criss, Dinklage, and Claire Foy behind her. Earlier this summer, he became the only man to ever be nominated seven times in the supporting actor category.

Game of Thrones season seven ended back in August 2017 and fans have had to wait over a year for the next season - the longest they've ever had to wait in between seasons. I can not walk down the street anymore. "But you are honestly the most talented, fantastic people I know, besides my wife, Erica, who I think I forgot to thank a couple of years ago".

Emilia Clarke had a moment when Game of Thrones wrapped filming. "I had no idea what was going on and it was very much a trip", Stanfield told Entertainment Weekly. Coincidence I think not, did he just spoil that Tyrion is a Targaryen.

Dinklage plays Tyrion Lannister, the brother of Jaime and Cersei Lannister, in the hit HBO show. Ah well, at least he didn't drop any spoilers then, eh?

"It was very sad", the actor said. "This is not only a great TV show to be a part of but it was an enormous family to be a part of".

We got them to go to eight but not any more than that. "But I guess [showrunners DB Weiss and David Benioff] wanted a life".

Backstage at the Emmy Awards, the showrunners of Game of Thrones explained to reporters why the final season is taking so long.
