He may never become king, but "Game of Thrones" star Peter Dinklage may just take home the Emmy crown on Sunday night.
The actor, who is masterful as Queen Cersei Lannister's brother, the dwarf Tyrion, is nominated for the first time. He goes up against a number of category veterans, including John Slattery, who played his darkest season yet as Roger Sterling on "Mad Men." After losing his biggest client, suffering love woes and hitting the sauce hard, it's the least he deserves.
Like the Supporting Actress category, "The Good Wife" has multiple nominees, with Josh Charles and Alan Cumming both getting nods for their work in the legal drama. Walton Goggins' very different role, in "Justified," scored him a nomination, and in a shout out for the show's final season, Andrew Braugher was tapped for his work in "Men of a Certain Age."
