Every week on Pose Billy Porter's character, Pray Tell, hands out trophies-but now the actor finally gets to take one home.

Billy Porter, who made history merely by being nominated for his role as the exuberant ballroom emcee Pray Tell in FX's Pose, a show that explores the "juxtaposition of several segments of life and society in NY: the rise of the luxury universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world".

And the category, a jubilant Billy Porter said as he made Emmys history, "is love, y'all, love".

"Let me make this clear right now in this room to everybody".

He then went on to thank a long list of people, including his mother, his husband, and Pose co-creator Ryan Murphy.

Jet2 replied: "We are very saddened by the news of Thomas Cook and sorry to hear of the impact this has had on your travel plans".

"I am so overwhelmed and so overjoyed that I have lived long enough to see this day", said Porter, rocking a towering asymmetrical cowboy hat and sparkling striped pants. "I've always had huge dreams but I realized now that my dreams have been springboarded off of things I have already seen".

The win came as a result of his work on FX's Pose series, beating out formidable competition found in Jason Bateman of Ozark, This Is Us darling Sterling K. Brown, Kit Harington from Game of Thrones, Better Call Saul's Bob Odenkirk, and Milo Ventimiglia of This Is Us.

The category is love, you all.

"I gotta breathe" Porter said. I know I'm part of a generation that kicked the door down for these issues and for these stories to be told.
