The winters are hard, but the Starks will endure. We always have.
peter dinklage could get nominated for an emmy 500 times and it would still be a big deal, okay? the fact that he’s now considered the “obvious” choice for a nomination is itself a big deal!
I mean, this is a visibly disabled man who is hitting us full on with his attractiveness and talent in such a way that people can no longer deny the fact that he’s a leading man. that he’s a star and force to be taken seriously. and he’s doing all of this while playing a role that is really rare in how well it deals with delivering a disability narrative! how is any of this not completely and overwhelmingly awesome???
so if you’re tired of seeing peter get nominated for emmys, I suggest you get off my lawn because I’m going to take every chance I can to celebrate him.
I just want to add to this, reminding people that every article after Ned’s death was “who will replace Sean Bean as the leading man??” Obviously book readers knew that it would have to be Peter/Tyrion. But most often in those articles, he was barely discussed. (Jon? Yes. Robb? Yes. Tyrion? Maybe.)
It is now no longer even a question that he the biggest star of the show, and that this show has made everyone recognize that he, as an actor, is a force to be reckoned with and should not be reduced to playing comic relief. (He has talked about that at length, by the way, about how he was always disappointed being confined to those roles because those were the only options that were really open to him and others with dwarfism.)
Good luck, Peter! You’re amazing.
