“Game of Thrones” actor Peter Dinklage was bleeped on stage during his acceptance speech after he won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series on Sunday — and here’s what he said.
“Ten years of absolute sweat, but 10 years of the most talented, motherf—ing people…,” he told the audience. “Hey, it’s over, I don’t care.”
Dinklage was nominated along with Jonathan Banks (“Better Call Saul”), Giancarlo Esposito (“Better Call Saul”), Alfie Allen (“Game of Thrones”), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (“Game of Thrones”), Michael Kelly (“House of Cards”) and Chris Sullivan (“This Is Us”). This is his fourth Emmy for his role of Tyrion Lannister.
Although Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Gwendoline Christie and Maisie Williams were nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category, the award ultimately went to Julia Garner (“Ozark”).
Dinklage played the brother of Cersei and Jaime Lannister on “Game of Thrones” since Season 1. The show also starred Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Isaac Hempstead, Nathalie Emmanuel, Iain Glen, Carice van Houten, John Bradley and many more.
Harington was nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, but “Pose’s” Billy Porter took home the prize. Bob Odenkirk, Jason Bateman, Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia were also nominated.
