USA's sneaky little favorite Mr. Robot won a Golden Globe for Best TV Series, Drama tonight. The show, written and directed by Sam Esmail, gained a loyal fanbase this year for its unnerving and cringe-free depiction of hacking (even if men surreptitiously sporting black hoodies did show up a few times).

Esmail accepted the award graciously and goofily, saying, "I gotta thank the Hollywood Foreign Press. I mean, they gave the best drama series award to a show called Mr. Robot. And that took a lot of courage, so thank you."

Mr. Robot was up against almost untouchably popular shows like Game of Thrones and Empire for the award, which makes tonight's win all that much more of a coup for the series, still only one season deep.
