Los Angeles [USA]: Peter Dinklage took home the award for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of ‘Tyrion Lannister’ in HBO’s uber-popular show ‘Game of Thrones’.
This is the second consecutive year that Dinklage has won the award for Supporting Actor in a Drama series. Dinklage has now won his fourth award in the category after eight nominations for all eight seasons of the show.
Julia Garner won the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Netflix’s Ozark.
After a remarkable 8-year-long journey, ‘GOT’ concluded earlier this year with its eighth and last season. While it was mostly a pleasant and seamless run, the last season of the show received a mixed reaction from the fans and critics.
Many disappointed fans even started a petition urging the makers to remake the last season of the series “with competent writers”. The petition managed to garner more than 1 million signatures.
The insanely popular drama series ‘Game of Thrones’ earned a whopping 32 Emmy nominations for its final season.
