The 41-year-old actor took home the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series during the 2020 Emmy Awards, which took place on Sunday (September 20) with all winners appearing via video conference calls.
Jeremy took home the prize for his work on HBO’s Succession and he said he shares the award with co-star Brian Cox, who was nominated in the same category.
“I read a poem by Stephen Dunn that said, ‘All I ever wanted was a book so good I’ll be finishing it for the rest of my life,’” Jeremy said during his speech. “This job was that, for me. Jesse Armstrong, I owe this to you, Brian Cox, I share this with you. Thank you so much.”
