Joe Morton has nabbed his very first Emmy.

“When my category came up, I looked for a door marked exit,” joked Morton from the stage, acknowledging that he didn’t expect to hear his name.

From backstage, Morton expressed his appreciation for the award: “It’s an incredible feeling to have been in the business this long — this is the first time I’ve been up for one of these things – and given who I was quote unquote up against, it’s terrific.”

He added: “My head is in the clouds somewhere, and my feet are trying to touch the ground.”
