Snug as a bug! Mark Ruffalo missed the 2015 SAG Awards on Sunday, Jan. 25, but sent his best from overseas. After Lupita Nyong'o and Jared Leto announced him as the winner of the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries, the Normal Heart star tweeted a photo of himself from bed, along with the thank yous he didn't get a chance to say onstage.

"Upon waking and hearing from my wife and kids that I won a @SAGAwards for #TheNormalHeart," he captioned the picture on Instagram. "Love wins tonight!"

Prior to posting the pic, Ruffalo explained that he'd been sleeping because he had to be at work in four hours. "Ha ha ha! Sunny and my kids just woke me up to tell me I won a SAG Award," he wrote.

He followed that with several tweets thanking the cast and crew of HBO's The Normal Heart, as well as his fellow Screen Actors Guild members and his personal PR team.

Costar Julia Roberts, for one, couldn't have been happier for the actor, who was also nominated for his role in Foxcatcher. Prior to presenting the SAG for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role (to winner Eddie Redmayne), she gave a shout-out to Ruffalo onstage.

"They had a wordy little tongue twister for me to start with about how wonderful actors are, but instead I just want to say, Mark Ruffalo is one outstanding actor," she began. "And I am so absolutely tickled to my toes that he won tonight. He wasn't here! Waitin' for that Nor'easter."

Roberts' comment made it sound as if Ruffalo might be in New York City, where a winter storm is expected to hit on Monday night. However, he tweeted earlier in the day that he was in London, presumably to film Now You See Me: The Second Act.

"I am in London working and they couldn't clear me to get there and back here in time," he explained to a follower. "With my luck it will be the one I win."
