Peter Dinklage Wins First Emmy For 'Game Of Thrones'

Peter Dinklage wins one for the geeks.

'Game of Thrones'
picked up its first Emmy tonight after Dinklage won for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Tyrion Lannister.

Surprisingly, Dinklage took the time to thank his dog sitter -- as well as his wife Erica Schmidt.

"Wow, I followed Martin Scorsese," said a completely shocked Dinklage. "I couldn't do this without David Benioff and Dan Weiss, the producers, they were the first to call me and tell me about this part. HBO you're quite simply the best place to work for you; you let artists create."

Dinklage not only picks up his first Emmy, but he also takes home the golden statue for his work in a fantasy drama -- a genre that often gets overlooked by the academy.

HBO Ready To Play 'Game of Thrones'

game of thronesSick of waiting for Guillermo Del Toro to adapt 'The Hobbit' for the big screen? This news might help tide you over: HBO has officially picked up fantasy series 'Game of Thrones' for a 10-episode season.

The show is based on George R. R. Martin's best-selling 'A Song of Ice and Fire' novels, which, admittedly, I have never read. Still, I'm excited about the possibilities for this series. HBO did family drama right ('Six Feet Under'), reinvented the Western ('Deadwood'), gave us a wonderfully quirky vampire show ('True Blood'), and the greatest police drama of all time ('The Wire'). I can't wait to see what an epic HBO fantasy series will look like.

Peter Dinklage starring in HBO fantasy pilot

peter dinklageIt's about time Peter Dinklage returned to TV.

The actor has been tapped to play a key role in HBO's fantasy pilot Game of Thrones. The pilot is based on George R.R. Martin's "Songs of Fire and Ice" novels and will take place in a violent fantasy kingdom. Dinklage will play the brother of the kingdom's queen, who is shunned because of his size.

Game of Thrones will reunite Dinklage with The Station Agent director Tom McCarthy, who is directing the pilot. McCarthy seems like an odd choice to direct a fantasy pilot. The actor-turned-director has only helmed two films, Agent and The Visitor, both low budget character dramas. Hopefully, this means Game of Thrones will deliver good character drama, as well as cool fantasy elements.

Threshold: Trees Made Of Glass

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 16th 2005 11:50PM

Was it me or did it seem like there was an incredible number of commercials during this two-hour premiere? Everytime I started getting into the plot, something dramatic would happen and they'd go to a commercial.

The first episode of Threshold was half X-Files, half The Invaders. It was half good, half oh-will-you-please-just-get-on-with-it. Let's start with the latter first.
