Peter Dinklage is one happy man today and the reason is pretty obvious. The Game of Thrones actor managed to bag his fourth trophy in the Best Supporting Actor Drama category at Emmys 2019 for the same HBO series and this is no small feat. He previously took home the trophy in the same category in 2011, 2015 and 2018. Guess, Peter's win was even predicted by all his fans as they unanimously cheered for him on Twitter without anyone getting disappointed or voicing their displeasure.

Peter was competing against his own on-screen brother, Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, his co-star Alfie Allen from Game of Thrones and Jonathan Banks, Giancarlo Esposito from Better Call Saul, Michael Kelly from House of Cards and Chris Sullivan from This is Us. Earlier his three-win record was shared with Art Carney, Don Knotts and Aaron Paul. Besides Dinklage, Game of Thrones also took home the trophy for Outstanding Drama Series - a major win, we must say for the makers.

Peter's character, Tyrion Lannister was much loved and appreciated throughout the series and its arch was commendable. We are glad to see him lift the trophy as we personally believe he was the best among all. The GoT makers have ample reasons to celebrate this year as their technical team too managed to score a win with 10 different trophies. They emerged winners in categories related to single-camera picture editing, sound mixing, casting, music composition, main title design, stunt coordination, makeup, costumes, visual effects and sound editing.
