It's a good night for Rami Malek!

The Mr. Robot star and internet hero won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, and his acceptance speech was the perfect combination of humble, graciousness, and even featured a nod to his hacker persona on the USA show.

"I think it's going to take a lot more than a second," Malek told ET's Kevin Frazier about processing the feeling of hearing your name being called. "I will always remember it."

"We've reached so many people," Malek said regarding the impact Mr. Robot has had. "People feel really disenfranchised. Their society is not doing them a service ... It speaks to so many people."

And that certainly makes sense when you consider Twitter basically exploded with love for Malek after his big win!

Congratulations, Rami!
