Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is nominated for an Emmy for his work in Game of Thrones’ final season, but he says that Peter Dinklage has this one in the bag. Coster-Waldau appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel and discussed his chances of winning Best Supporting Actor, basically saying that it’s nil due to Dinklage who has won the Emmy three times.

“We should just rename this category the Peter Dinklage category,” the actor said, as you can see in the below video. The two Game of Thrones stars are nominated along with fellow Thrones star Alfie Allen, Jonathan Banks and Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul), Michael Kelly (House of Cards) and Chris Sullivan (This Is Us).
