Martin Freeman went back to sleep after hearing he'd won an Emmy award for 'Sherlock'.
'The Hobbit' actor - who stars as Dr. Watson alongside Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes in the BBC One crime drama - has confessed he was in bed in London when he found out he'd won the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles earlier this week.
Speaking to BBC Radio Wales, Martin explained: "I got a text from my American agent and she said, 'You've just won', and I thought, 'Ah, very, very nice'. And then I went to sleep.
"I woke up to find that Ben had won and that ['Sherlock' creator] Steven Moffat had won ... and that Fargo had also done really well, you know, both shows that I was in that had been nominated did really well so I was very pleased about that."
'Sherlock' walked away with three prestigious Emmy awards earlier this week, with Benedict taking home the Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie award while Steven was handed the coveted Best Writing for a Miniseries or Movie prize.
Martin added: "I'm delighted. Really, really pleased. Whenever you're nominated for an award you know you've got a chance but I certainly wasn't banking on it, put it that way."
