Peter Dinklage was absolutely shocked when he won an Emmy this past weekend for his brilliant work on Game of Thrones. Dinklage admitted as much in his acceptance speech, saying he was so sure he wasn’t going to win that he was just sitting in his seat chew gum and waiting for one of his competitors to accept the award.
So what happened to the gum? The conspiracy theorists among us MUST know. Did he swallow it? Stick it to the bottom of his seat? Spit it out comedically when he realized he’d won? Nope.
He tongue-kissed his wife and gave it to her.
We see in exhibit A, that Mrs. Dinklage tried to do the normal thing and just take the gum in her palm.
But this is Tyrion Lannister and Tyrion Lannister doesn’t spit out gum. He transfers it via mouth.
Awesome move by Dinklage but GOD DAMN THAT’S DIGUSTING. Mrs. Dinklage should get her own Emmy for being the world’s most tolerant wife.
