Tyrion on trend! Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage subtly revealed his man bun onstage during the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards while accepting his second-ever award for his portrayal of Tyrion Lannister on the HBO series.
Looking befuddled when his name was announced instead of other contenders in the Best Supporting Actor category on Sunday — including The Good Wife‘s Alan Cumming and Better Call Saul’s Jonathan Banks — a surprised Dinklage took to the stage to graciously thank his peers for their support.

“I wasn’t prepared because of the other actors in my category,” Dinklage, 46, explained to the crowd about his second-ever Emmys win. “I’m still sort of awed by all their performances.”
When he briefly turned to the side, the actor revealed a tiny sliver of a man bun tucked away at the lower crown of his head.
The man bun was slyly concealed earlier that night when Dinklage walked the red carpet with his wife, Erica Schmidt, with whom he shares daughter Zelig, 4. After his big win on Sunday, Dinklage told reporters backstage about how he personally overcame bullying in his own success story.
“Bullying is a worldwide epidemic and none of us are really spared from it,” he noted. “I had really great parents. And some really great teachers. And that’s all you need really. And the rest is up to you.”
