Actor Matt Bomer has won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor in a TV movie for his role in HBO’s “The Normal Heart.”

The critically acclaimed film depicts the rise of the HIVAIDS crisis in New York City between 1981 and 1984, as seen through the eyes of writer/activist Ned Weeks, the founder of a prominent HIV advocacy group.

Bomer played the activist’s partner, Felix Turner, a New York Times reporter with the AIDS virus.

“To the generation we lost, and the people we continue to lose to this disease, I just want to say we love you, we remember you,” said Bomer, accepting the award.

He also thanked his husband and three children from the stage.

The 72nd annual Golden Globes are airing live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
