Two weeks later, the 58-year-old actor took home the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series at the 2013 Emmy Awards for his work on the show. "Thank you to HBO. I can't imagine a more creative place to work, they're so supportive," he said during his acceptance speech. "The cast and crew -- I share this with you."
