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.

In recent years, only two actors from sci-fi/fantasy shows have won a Lead or Supporting Emmy: Terry O'Quinn (2007) and Michael Emerson (2009) -- and both men won for their supporting roles in 'Lost.'

It looks like Dinklage has a lot to celebrate tonight.

Although 'Game of Thrones' was nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, it lost out to perennial winner 'Mad Men.'
