Ha, and I just saw that Gay of Thrones was nominated for an Emmy too!

Outstanding Short Form Variety Series

I really don’t understand why Peter Dinklage was nominated again this year. Nothing against the guy but he has had less and less to do every season and he keeps getting nominated. It feels more like a habit now to just nominate him and it’s tiresome.

I think he was much better this season than in S6. His scene with Cersei was great.

Eh, Peter Dinklage did more than in Season 5 for which he won the Emmy (his S7 scenes with NCW and Lena), so why not? He's also one of the best and most known actors in the main cast of a show which regularly garners multiple nominations, so it's almost a "nomination by association."

I sometimes feel that Peter is taken for granted in this fandom. I think he is just constantly great.

I think Peter is great but I don't think the writers give him much to work with sometimes.  He definitely shouldn't have picked up the Emmy for Season 5 (Jonathan Banks should have picked it up that year).  It was nothing against him but he really didn't have a standout moment that season.

I wasn’t trying to insult him. Personally I love the guy and think he’s fantastic. I just think his constant nominations are a little ridiculous when you have someone like Alfie Allen who has done outstanding work and has been overlooked consistently. Peter Dinklage to be fair hasn’t been the star of this show for a few seasons, he hasn’t had a meaty storyline of his own, and his one really good acting scene this season was with Lena in the finale. I don’t think he deserves to be nominated this season just because of his name. 🤷‍♀️. To be honest I was baffled that he was nominated. Just my opinion, doesn’t mean I don’t think he doesn’t deserve the other Emmy he has or he’s not a great actor.

I don’t think Peter Dinklage deserved to be nominated this year either. He is a fantastic actor, one of my favorite actors on the show, but I don’t think they gave him enough good material to work with. It’s not as bad as his nomination for season 6 (that was completely undeserved) or his win for season 5 but his role in season 7 just doesn’t justify his nomination.

Congrats to Peter Dinklage for his Emmy! If anyone deserves an award on this show, it's him. And of course Alfie.

If Dinklage gets an Emmy for season 8, I think he will break the record for most Emmys in the supporting actor category. Though, personally, I think it would make no sense for him to be submitted in the supporting actor category in the final season.

I am just glad that David and Dan did not win for writing this time around. That would have made the Emmys even more of a mockery than it is.

I'm happy that GoT won again. It's really something that was never seen on TV.

And I'm happy that THT lost lol

Couldn't agree more.

Glad for P.Dinklage but NCW, sigh.

If Friki spoilers are true, Peter will win again next year.

Very happy Game of Thrones won Best Drama, which is richly deserved.

As for PD's victory, it feels like another case of the Emmy winner honoring someone simply on the basis of being a previous winner.  When PD won in Season 5, that was another example.  I remember all the critics saying that Season that he was the deserving no-brainer to win but I didn't understand it.  PD always does great work but was given no Emmy material in Season 5 and as far as I was concerned, he received the Emmy that Jonathan Banks should have gotten that season for Better Call Saul.  He was good in Season 7 but I really can't remember much about his performance or storyline in Season 7.  PD's best seasons were for Season 1 (which he rightly got the Emmy for) and Season 4 (which he didn't win).

The acting remains excellent, but THT took a big dive in quality post-S1, in my opinion.

Didn’t Gold Derby give THT an 80% chance of winning Best Drama? Oops.

Happy for Peter Dinklage. At least this time he won’t have to feel bad about stealing Jonathan Banks’ Emmy.

Very nice wins for Dinklage and the show last night! Honestly sometimes I think GoT has become a show in which they put more effort into CGI and FX rather than writing a good script, but Tyrion's conversation with Cersei at the end of the season was great writing and acting. See, they can do it.

Yeah. Only a fool would see this year as sign of GoT's weakness.  They will destroy competition next year.

OK, I've been wondering this since I watched last night-- who is the young man in the bow tie between Gwendoline Christie and GRRM?

I wish it had been NCW who had a much better year this year than Peter.

When I consider this year Peter barely registers but NCW completely stands out and not just for his scene with Olenna.  He did much less wordy stuff but it was really memorable.

Yeah, I struggled to remember what Tyrion's storyline actually was this season.  He pretty much is exclusively Dany's advisor at this point.

He had a lot of good scenes IMO.

With Jaime, Cersei, Daenerys in E6, Jon in E3, watching Lannister's army being destroyed in E4 and so on.

He looked so familiar to me! It was driving me crazy. Turns out I was delusional, lol.

He's the son of EP Carolyn Strauss.  She's the woman standing between D&D.

Ha! Thank you. I thought he looked familiar, too, but I couldn't think of any young male characters who were still alive other than Bran, and I knew it wasn't him.

I thought for a second that Trevor Noah photobombed the cast....
