Indian-American actor-comedian Aziz Ansari became the first Asian male to win a Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy series when he took home the trophy for “Master of None” at the 75th Golden Globe Awards.
“I genuinely didn’t think I would win as all the websites said I was gonna lose. Also, I am glad that we won this one. To lose two of these in a row would have been a really sh***y moment for me. But this is nice. The only reason my acting is good on the show is because everyone holds me up,” Ansari said in his acceptance speech.
“The only reason my acting is good in that show is because everyone else holds me up,” Ansari quipped before thanking the cast and crew of Master of None, his parents and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Ansari was nominated in the same category for the Netflix show The Master of None in 2016.
