Dinklage especially seemed delighted by his award: “Hopefully it will give that genre a little bit more respect,” he told reporters backstage.
Jessica Lange highlighted her hairdo and massive monologues she had little time to learn as the main challenges in her role: “The hairdo really tested my patience,” she said to laughs. “The final monologue I had in last episode was something I had to nail down in an incredibly short period of time… To me, that’s more important than any of physical things.”
