Peter Dinklage wins Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama!

The Emmys are back, with Game of Thrones, Westworld and The Handmaid's Tale leading the nominations ahead of the ceremony in Los Angeles today.

Of course, Brosnahan is talking about The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, her hit Amazon Prime comedy that is up for 14 awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

"I went without the bra!" she declared.

To this day, Peter Dinklage is the only actor on Game of Thrones to win an Emmy Award for his work on the show.

She was followed by Darren Criss, who won the lead acting award for the miniseries The Assassination of Gianni Versace and who is of Filipino descent. "It's because I want to call you my wife", Weiss said. "Tonight, I got to clear the table", an ebullient Winkler said, with an equally delighted auditorium audience rising to give him a standing ovation.
