Tony Hale, Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series Acceptance Speech Emmy Awards 2013 [VIDEO]
Veep's Tony Hale won the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series at the 2013 Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sunday. This was the first nomination and win for the actor.
"Oh my god, that's a lot, oh man, oh cow," the actor, who plays Gary Walsh on the show, said during his acceptance speech. "Even to be on a list with those guys is crazy humbling. This is mind-blowing."
The actor was up against Adam Driver from Girls, Jesse Tyler Ferguson from Modern Family, Ed O'Neill from Modern Family, Ty Burrell from Modern Family and Bill Hader from Saturday Night Live.
"I just want to thank my two favorite people in the entire world - my wife and my daughter," he said.
Hale also thanked his co-star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays Selina Meyer on the show. The camera panned to a smiling Louis-Dreyfus who seemed proud of Hale.
"You're a joy to work across from," he said.
The Florida native also expressed his shock of being nominated during his appearance on The Talk in August.
"I'm still absorbing the shock. It's crazy," Hale said.
The 65th annual Emmy Awards honored other popular shows, including Glee, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and Downtown Abbey. Actor Neil Patrick Harris hosted the Emmys for the second time.
