Very humbled to win @TheEmmys last night, huge thanks to @TVAcademy & congrats to all my brilliant fellow nominees. But want to dedicate this to Michael K Williams, his performance as Omar in The Wire is one of the great screen performances, he will be deeply missed. RIP🙏

Yet not humbled enough to pull a Ving Rhames. Okay.

lol why should he.

Ving Rhames stand outs amongst everyone cause he was an exception. He did that cause he wanted to not because he was demanded or expected to.

Yeah, how do you give an award to a deceased person? Go away.

His Philip was the best performance in a show with a lot of great performances imo. He made even the often clunky script work. Glad he won.

That’s really nice of him to dedicate his award to Michael. However, I watched the last season of The Crown though and his performance was not memorable at all.

lol that was the general consensus in the live post last night: Happy for him but he didn't do anything remarkable either lol.

Yeah in the last season he was forgettable. Not his fault, he just wasn't written/edited in as much as an award winner should have been.

I didn't watch last season because although I like Tobias Menzies and love Olivia Coleman, I can't stomach the fact that I have to watch Margaret Thatcher. I don't know if the show deserves so many awards, maybe it does, but thb I'm sick of The Crown winning everything. I can't wait for Succession to come back and kick ass!

Tobias has deserved an Emmy for YEARS. So underrated. Should have won one for The Terror too.

I still can't believe that The Terror S1 was so ignored in the U.S. BOO THIS ACADEMY

BOO

I still think that first season was one of the best miniseries in history of tv.

IA! Rome and The Terror for sure. He is so talented.
