Rami Malek has won the 2016 Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Elliot Alderson in Mr Robot

This was Rami’s first Emmy nomination, and he fended off competition from veteran actors, including:

Kyle Chandler (Bloodline)

Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul)

Matthew Rhys (The Americans)

Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan)

and Kevin Spacey (House of Cards)

Upon accepting the award, barely able to contain his disbelief, Malek summoned Elliot Alderson for a second and uttered:

“Please tell me you’re seeing this too!”

Well done Rami from all of us at couchpotato.buzz!
