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.
