Moments after Courtney B. Vance accepted an Emmy Sunday night, he called his 10-year-old twins to get their take on the win.
“Oh my god, we screamed so loud!” they told him over the phone. “I love you!”
Vance won for outstanding lead actor in a limited series or movie for his role in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.
Vance was up against Bryan Cranston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston and Cuba Gooding, Jr.
He made sure to thank his wife onstage for her unwavering support.
“To the woman who rocks my chain thank you Angela Bassett, this one’s for you girl,” he said.
