It was inevitable: Peter Dinklage has the Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actor in HBO’s Game of Thrones. I’d say his chances are pretty good, but watch out for Justified‘s Walton Goggins!
GoT has 13 Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series. No kidding! The show has the most outstanding cast ever, and it’s a shame that not all of them could be nominated and win.
