Cobra Kai fans are delighted to see Stingray win best supporting actor at this year's Golden Globe Awards.
Paul Walter Hauser's role as serial killer Larry Hall in Apple TV’s Blackbird helped him pick up the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Television Limited Series/Motion Picture.
Check out his acceptance speech below:
The series follows high school football hero and decorated policeman’s son Jimmy Keene (Taron Egerton) who is sentenced to 10 years in a minimum security prison, and is given the choice of entering a maximum-security prison for the criminally insane and befriend suspected serial killer Larry Hall (Paul Walter Hauser), or stay where he is and serve his full sentence with no possibility of parole.
Despite being awarded for his role in Blackbird, Cobra Kai fans couldn't help but feel proud as one of their favourite characters - Raymond Porter a.k.a Stingray - picked up the coveted trophy.
"I cannot express how much joy it brings me that Stingray from Cobra Kai is finally getting the recognition he deserves," one fan commented.
"F**k yeah STING RAY!!" another added, while a third person also writes: "Imagine my surprise that Stingray from Cobra Kai won a Golden Globe lol."
Someone else tweeted: "Shout out to Stingray on his Golden Globe! Great actor."
"I don't think I'm gonna get the time that like [Steven] Spielberg and the other guys got, so I'm just gonna say a bunch of names," Hauser said in his acceptance speech.
He then thanked his wife, Amy Boland Hauser, for her 'love' and 'patience'.
Notably, Hauser also gave a massive shoutout to late great co-star Ray Liotta who sadly died last year at the age of 67.
"Get up! C'mon! Ray Liotta. Ray Liotta, baby. Yeah!" he told the audience.
Turning our attention back to the beginning of the show, Ke Huy Quan picked up the first Golden Globe award of the evening with best supporting actor in a motion picture for his role in Everything Everywhere All At Once.
“I was raised to never forget where I came from, and to always remember who gave me my first opportunity.
“I am so happy to see Steven Spielberg here tonight,” he said.
“As I grew older, I started to wonder if that was it. If that was just luck for so many years, I was afraid I had nothing more to offer.
“That no matter what I did I would I would never surpass what I achieved as a kid.
“Thankfully, more than 30 years later, two guys remembered that kid and they gave me an opportunity.”
