Ben Mendelsohn has taken home the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at this year's Emmy Awards in Hollywood. 

The Melbourne-born actor took home the gong for his role as the black sheep son, Danny Rayburn, on Netflix Original Series Bloodline.

He beat out Game of Thrones' Kit Harrington and Peter Dinklage, House of Cards' Michael Kelly, John Voight for Ray Donovan and Jonathan Banks for Better Call Saul.

This is Mendelsohn's second nomination in this category, he was nominated in the 2015 Emmys for the same role. 

Fans are eagerly awaiting the next installment of the series, which Netflix recently announced will be its last. Season 3 will unfold over 10 episodes and will be released on the streaming giant in the first half of 2017.

From the Creators of Damages, Bloodline is a dramatic thriller that explores the demons lurking beneath the surface of a contemporary American family. The Rayburns are hard-working pillars of their Florida Keys community. But when the black sheep son comes home for the 45th anniversary of his parents’ hotel, he threatens to expose the Rayburns’ dark secrets and shameful past, pushing his siblings to the limits of family loyalty.
