“I want to thank everybody for honoring us in this way. We worked very hard on 'Silicon Valley,' and here we are. Thank you," said 'Atlanta' star, Lakeith Stanfield on Sunday night at the 22nd Critics' Choice Awards.

HBO's Silicon Valley won the award for best comedy series beating out other shows in its category like Atlanta, Black-ish and Modern Family. Stanfield made it to the stage before the show's executive producer Tom Lassally could deliver an actual acceptance speech. Once on at the mic, Stanfield responded, "No idea who that was."

Although the breakout freshman series didn't take home the all-around honor, earlier in the night, Donald Glover walked away with best actor in a comedy series.
