Bomer, a first-time nominee, embraced director Ryan Murphy before taking to the stage to accept the award.
“Thank you so much the Hollywood Foreign Press for acknowledging this film and including me among these incredible actors in this category, all of whom I admire so much,” the actor said during his acceptance speech. “Ryan Murphy, thank you for believing in me and trusting me with this role, walking me through it everyday.

Mark Ruffalo I don’t know where you are but you are the best actor anybody could hope to have as a scene partner and I thank you on behalf of the whole cast … to my husband Simon Halls and our three kids – Kit, Walker, Henry – I love you.

To everyone at HBO, thank you for making films like this continually that need to be heard …” Watch Matt Bomer’s full Golden Globes acceptance speech below:
