Keaton, who received the award for his function in “Dopesick,” Hulu’s compelling recounting of the rise of opioid dependancy in America, gave an impassioned speech through which he expressed his appreciation for the craft of appearing and the flexibility to inform tales that may “improve someone’s life.”

“I’m the most fortunate person,” stated Keaton, who was late to the stage after taking an ill-timed lavatory break.

Through tears, Keaton devoted his award to his sister, Pam, and nephew, Michael, who died in 2016 following a battle with drug dependancy, he stated.

Through tears, Keaton stated the gesture was becoming “given the subject matter” of the sequence for which he received.

Keaton, who received the award for greatest male actor in a tv film or restricted sequence, had beforehand defined to the New York Times that dropping his nephew was a motivating issue for participating in “Dopesick,” which is an adaptation of Beth Macy’s guide of the identical title.

“I take pride in holding those people accountable for the victims of this opioid crisis,” he instructed the Times last year.

In “Dopesick,” Keaton performs a rural physician who falls sufferer to a pharmaceutical firm’s misleading promoting and business practices earlier than scuffling with dependancy himself.

The sequence is out there for streaming now on Hulu.
