The official Australian premiere of 'Game of Thrones' prequel series "House of the Dragon" landed in Sydney this week, but the event immediately turned contentious after Patrick Delany, the CEO of Australian television company Foxtel, referred to Emilia Clarke as a "short, dumpy girl." According to Variety, Delany was giving a speech and tried to make a joke about the first time he watched "Game of Thrones."
