Kevin Spacey was named the leading man in drama at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday.

The House of Cards star won the award for outstanding performance by a male actor in a drama series, which was presented by Pedro Pascal and Priyanka Chopra.

“I have to thank this cast that is here, an extraordinary group of actors,” said Spacey, 56. “Apparently, they say if you’re in an elevator you don’t know if you’re going up or down, but right now it feels like I’m going up.”
