During his acceptance speech for his win in the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made For Television, Hiddleston came off as a little self-indulgent. He expressed how Doctors Without Borders workers binge-watched his series The Night Manager during his charity work in South Sudan.

Hiddleston said in a statement on Twitter yesterday, his intention wasn’t to toot his own horn at all. Rather, he was trying to raise awareness.
“I just wanted to say… I completely agree that my speech at the Golden Globes last night was inelegantly expressed. In truth, I was very nervous, and my words just came out wrong,” Hiddleston explained. “Sincerely, my only intention was to salute the incredible bravery and courage of the men and women who work so tirelessly for UNICEF UK, Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), and World Food Programme, and the children of South Sudan, who continue to find hope and joy in the most difficult conditions. I apologise that my nerves got the better of me.”
