Game of Thrones is one of the most successful shows on TV, and it has helped a lot in pushing the platform. In the last few years, Game of Thrones has been at the forefront, pushing television to new heights, and a large part of it has been because of the great cast that the show has. Now when it comes to being great actors, we know all of them are, but there’s one that considered to be the best of the cast, by fans and critics alike: Peter Dinklage, who plays the role of Tyrion Lannister on the show. With his latest Emmy nomination, he has now become to holder of a great record. Read on!
As you guys might remember, the nominees for the 2018 Emmy Awards were recently announced, and Game of Thrones took the cake with 22 nominations in total. One of these 22, was a nomination for Peter Dinklage for his role as Tyrion Lannister, in the “Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series” category, putting him at the top of a long line of actors. This is the seventh time he has been nominated in this category, and that makes him the most-nominated actor in the category, in Emmy history.
Peter Dinklage has been nominated for his role for every season of Game of Thrones, and has won in the category twice already, in 2011 and 2015. He only broke his streak of being nominated back to back for six years, in 2017, as Game of Thrones Season 7 was aired too late for the show to be considered for the 2017 Emmys.
Dinklage has this year, and the Season 8 consideration year, which could be 2018 or 2019, to either equal or break the record for wins in this category, which is currently held by Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, with three wins.
We don’t think it’s Dinklage’s year this time. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, was hands down the best actor in Season 7, and it would be criminal to deny him this win. As far as Season 8 goes, we’ll see about that. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Liam Cunningham Wins Inaugural Human Rights Award
Game of Thrones actor Liam Cunningham who played the character of Davos Seaworth in the show has won the inaugural Human Rights Award. It was an important win for the actor and something which he is going to cherish for a long time. Read on.
As per Nova, Cunningham was recently bestowed upon by the award by Syrian refugee Husam Alhraki for his campaigning work on the rights of migrants and refugees. On receiving the award Cunningham felt honored and asked Europe to do more for the refugees. He said:
“It’s an honor for me to receive this award from the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, who have been working to make Ireland a freer and better country for almost half a century.
And it comes at a really important moment when Europe is literally allowing refugees to die on our borders. We need to stand up against this, to assert that Europe and Ireland we want to live in are places that offer refuge to people who need our help.”
In another interview recently, he was particularly vocal against the governments for not doing enough for this crisis. He said:
“It’s an ugly, filthy look on our government not to take care of business … we’re not doing as much as we should be doing and as much as we said we would. It’s terrible.”
Cunningham has emerged as a champion of human rights in Ireland and it is so good to see an actor stand up for a real cause.
