Who is the rightful ruler of Westeros?

HBO has just released the first teaser trailer for Game of Thrones season 2, offering a tense taste of things to come. We see Lady Stark pointing a dagger at Littlefinger, Joffrey threatening to kill Sansa, and Tyrion – played by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage – acknowledging how "the game is played."

"One of the great challenges of the second season is that the world just expanded enormously," David Benioff, executive producer and writer, said recently. "Not only do we introduce a great number of new characters, but we're journeying to all new locations."

The Game returns April 1 on HBO.

Peter Dinklage's Globes Speech: Who is Martin Henderson?

Originally posted 01/17/2012 09:15AM

Peter Dinklage gave a fairly standard acceptance after receiving the Golden Globe for Best Supporting TV Actor on Sunday. But it was his mention of "a gentleman in England I'm thinking about, Martin Henderson" that left people scratching their heads.

Instead of elaborating, the actor told the audience to "Google him" and within minutes Henderson's name was trending on Twitter.

Turns out, Henderson is a fellow dwarf and aspiring actor, who was badly injured after a stranger picked him up and threw him in England last October. He has not been able to walk properly since the incident.

Peter Dinklage was a winner at Sunday's Golden Globes, but he had other things on his mind while accepting.

After telling his fellow actors that he and wife Erica left their new daughter with a babysitter for the first time, the Game of Thrones star, 42, came backstage and told PEOPLE his nerves were calm about the situation – at least for the time being.

"Everything's fine – so far," Dinklage, 42, said, laughing. "She's a baby. Crying never killed anyone. Well, maybe that's not true."

Golden Globes: The Artist, Meryl Streep & Claire Danes Win Big

Originally posted 01/15/2012 11:20PM

Despite an off-color remark or two from host Ricky Gervais, Sunday's 69th annual Golden Globe Awards proved to be something unexpected – family friendly.

Named best actress for the TV drama Homeland, Claire Danes said that when she won her first Globe, for 1994's My So-Called Life, she was only 15 – and was so overwhelmed that she forgot to thank her parents.

She made up for that oversight on Sunday, and pointed out her mother, Carla, sitting in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Danes also thanked her husband, Hugh Dancy, "who keeps me sane and happy."

Throughout the evening, many winners took time to remember members of their families. The Artist's best comedy actor, Jean Dujardin, thanked "my beautiful and talented wife." (The movie was also named best picture comedy or musical.)

Peter Dinklage Should Win an Emmy

Originally posted 07/14/2011 04:20PM

While HBO's epic fantasy series Game of Thrones has stirred much debate over its nudity and violence, Peter Dinklage's scene-stealing turn as Tyrion Lannister has been almost universally praised, even scoring the American actor an Emmy nomination for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series.

His recognition should come as no surprise to fans of the show and author George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series, on which Thrones is based, but for newbies looking to understand Dinklage's appeal, here's a few reasons why we think the actor, 42, deserves Emmy gold for bringing Tyrion to life:
