WINNER!

Tags: Ben Mendelsohn

Australian actor Ben Mendelsohn has won an Emmy Award for his disturbing role as a vengeful family member in the US series Bloodline.

The Emmy in the best supporting actor category was believed to be a race between Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage and Kit Harington, but outsider Mendelsohn, who was not at the ceremony at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater on Sunday, caused the major upset.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus made Emmy history earlier in the ceremony when she won her fifth straight lead comedy actress award for Veep while Sarah Polson, Courtney B Vance and Sterling K Brown won for their performances in the mini-series The People v OJ Simpson.
