2015 Emmys coincided with GRRM’s birthday and host Andy Samberg teased the author with this photoshopped picture of how Martin must have looked at his first Emmy award.

Game of Thrones went on to broke Emmy Record for most wins with 4 PrimeTime Emmys and 8 Creative Emmys. Peter Dinklage won his second emmy for his role as Tyrion Lannister. For a complete list of winners, click here.
