During the 2015 SAG Awards Sunday night Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto announced that Ruffalo had won for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Miniseries or Television for playing Ned Weeks in HBO’s The Normal Heart. Unfortunately, Ruffalo couldn’t attend the awards ceremony because of filming for Now You See Me: The Second Act – but still responded to the honor on social media.

“Upon waking and hearing from my wife and kids that I won a @sagawards for #TheNormalHeart Love wins tonight!” Ruffalo captioned his selfie, which showed him in pajamas in bed.
