Peter Dinklage ’91 broke records at the Emmys this year when he won his fourth Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series—the first and only actor to earn the honor. In his acceptance speech, Dinklage appreciated being a member of a community that values tolerance and diversity, noting there would be few other places he “would be standing on a stage like this.” In addition to the record-breaking number of Emmys earned for playing Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, Dinklage also earned a Golden Globe award, as well as several Screen Actor Guild Award nominations. Moreover, Dinklage starred in another Emmy-nominated HBO production, My Dinner with Hervé, nominated for Best Television Movie this year.
