It was one of the most competitive categories of the 2016 Emmy Awards: Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie. But as predicted, Courtney B. Vance wound up taking home the big award for his role as Johnnie Cochran in The People v. O.J. Simpson.

This is the first Emmy win and nomination for Angela Bassett’s husband, who yelled, “Glory to God!” when first touching the golden statuette.

“To my fellow nominees, thank you,” Vance said. “To the woman that rocked my chain, Angela Evelyn Bassett, this one is for you, girl.” The actor concluded his acceptance speech by telling the crowd, “Obama out, Hillary in.”

Prior to the awards show, HipHollywood caught up with Variety’s Executive Editor of TV, Debra Birnbaum, who forecasted Vance’s win. “He was so fantastic in The People v. O.J. Simpson. He really owned the role; he just made it his own.”

Congratulations to the actor.
