GAME Of Thrones star Peter Dinklage sparked panic at the Emmys with a sweary acceptance speech that had to be bleeped.
The 50-year-old actor won the Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series gong for his role as Tyrion Lannister in the hit HBO series, which came to an end earlier this year.
As he took to the stage, Peter reflected on the seven seasons of the show, saying: “I have no idea what I’m about to say but here we go, I count myself to be so fortunate to be part of a community that is about tolerance, diversity and inclusivity.
“It’s been about 10 years all said and done when I met [creators] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] and I had no idea what I was getting myself into but I knew they were brilliant.
“It was 10 years of absolute sweat, but 10 years of the most incredible, talented, funniest…”
The actor then unleashed a series of swear words which were immediately bleeped out by producers.
Reacting to the surprise of him being the only star to swear during the ceremony, he added: “I don’t care, it’s over.”
Continuing, he said: “We did nothing but sweat, we did nothing but laugh. Dave and Dan we literally walked through fire and ice for you and I would do it all again in a heartbeat.”
Game of Thrones’ final season lead the way with 14 nominations including Best Drama Series.
Combined with the Creative Arts Emmys earlier this month, the show broke records with 32 nominations in total.

However the award went to Julia Garner for her work on Netflix show, Ozark.
