Hugh Jackman may have missed out on an Emmy this year, but he was still a winner in his fans’ eyes thanks to his gracious reaction when Mark Ruffalo defeated him.

The 51-year-old Australian actor applauded and cheered on Mark when he was announced as the winner in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie Category for his performance in ‘I Know This Much Is True’.

A string of Aussies were nominated for Emmy Awards this year, including Cate Cate Blanchett for her role in ‘Mrs America’ in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie category. Regina King ultimately won for her performance in HBO’s one-season-wonder ‘Watchmen’.

Streaming live from more than 130 cameras stationed in nominees’ homes around the world, the first-ever virtual Emmys was hosted by Jimmel Kimmel from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

‘Schitt’s Creek’ which racked up a whopping 15 nominations, took home the first seven awards on the night ― making history as the first comedy series to win all four acting Emmys in its category in a single year.
