OK, so technically I cannot verify if the world erupted in cheers, but I’m pretty sure that between me and Matt Bomer’s husband Simon Halls, we made enough noise for the world.

And it was all for Matt! The extremely sexy and supremely talented actor took home the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Movie or Mini-Series last night at the 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Awards for his amazing performance in The Normal Heart.

Remember when I said he would make you cry? He totally did. 

He also made me tear up last night during his acceptance speech. Most actors seem excited to win, but I think it was truly a touching and important moment for Matt. I mean, he put so much of himself in this role, it has to be a joy to get recognized for something it.

And while the tears were great, I did laugh when he thanked his husband and his sons for “supporting me when I was a 130 pounds and really, really hangry.” You can watch his full acceptance below. It’s lovely.

Well Matt, congratulations! Here’s to hoping you get that well-deserved Emmy nomination and win, too! Launch the gallery to check out all the best photos of Matt from last night. He is a gem.
