Colman Domingo has won outstanding guest actor in a drama series for his role in Euphoria. It is the first Emmy for both actors.

“Thank you so much for this huge honor,” Lee said, via a translator, when accepting the award. “I want to give my thanks to the TV academy, especially a big thanks to my Netflix team as well.”

Thank you to those people,” said Domingo in his acceptance speech, noting Euphoria creator Sam Levinson and team as “the most creative artists.” The actor also thanked his husband, Raúl Domingo: “Thank you to my darling Raúl, this is for you.”

The other nominees in the drama guest actress category include Euphoria’s Martha Kelly, The Morning Show’s Marcia Gay Harden and Succession’s Hope Davis, Sanaa Lathan and Harriet Walter (who was also nominated for her guest role in Ted Lasso).
