Billy Porter’s work on “Pose” has amassed considerable critical acclaim and fanfare.

Sunday, it yielded an Emmy Award.

The actor took home the trophy during the latter portion of the ceremony, beating out Kit Harington (Game Of Thrones), Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us), Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us), and Jason Bateman (Ozark).

“Pose” is also up for the Outstanding Drama Series award. The trophy will most likely be the last one distributed during Sunday’s ceremony.

Airing without a formal host, the show is currently underway on FOX.
