Actor Matt Bomer scored his first ever major award on Sunday, taking home a Golden Globe for best supporting actor in a TV movie or miniseries for “The Normal Heart.”

The “White Collar” actor got a little emotional when he thanked  his co-star Mark Ruffalo.

“You are the best actor anybody could ever hope to have as a scene partner,” said Bomer. “I thank you on behalf of the whole cast for providing the heart and soul of this movie.”

Bomer, who is openly gay, also thanked his husband of three years.

“To my husband, Simon Halls, and our three kids, Kit, Walker, Henry, I love you putting up with me when I was 130 pounds and really grumpy when you ate pizza in front of me,” he said.

Bomer lost 40 pounds for his role in “The Normal Heart,” playing a closeted gay man with AIDS in the 80s.

He ended his speech with a special thanks to “the generation that we lost and the people we continue to lose due to this disease, I just want to say we love you, we remember you.”
