Ebon Moss-Bachrach is top chef at the Emmy Awards.

Moss-Bachrach, 46, won the category for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series on Monday after he earned his first-ever Emmy nomination this year for his portrayal of Richard "Richie" Jeromovich, the loudmouthed right-hand man of struggling Chicago chef Carmen "Carmy" Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White).

"Wow, okay. Thank you very much," he began in his acceptance speech. "This job is such a gift. It's such a privilege to work with these wonderful actors. We have the best crew. We have this incredible Chicago crew," the star continued, before thanking more loved ones and colleagues.

With two nominations each, Ted Lasso and Barry led the category for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series, as Phil Dunster picked up his first nom and Brett Goldstein his fourth for the Apple TV+ show, and HBO stars Anthony Carrigan and Henry Winkler each added yet another nomination to their belts.

James Marsden also scored a nod for playing an over-the-top version of himself in Jury Duty, joining Moss-Bachrach from The Bear and Abbott Elementary's Tyler James Williams in his second nomination.

Carrigan, 41, earned his third Emmy nod this year for his portrayal of Chechen mob boss NoHo Hank. He became a fan-favorite character on the critically acclaimed series, which he described as a "unicorn job" in conversation with PEOPLE in 2022.

Hank was such a fun character to play, he said, because he "messes with your expectations, and what you deem to be good or bad."

Carrigan's costar Henry Winkler was also recognized in this category. And Barry's creator and star Bill Hader — who previously won Emmys in 2018 and 2019 — was also nominated in 2023 in the outstanding lead actor in a comedy series category.

First-time nominee Dunster, 31, wrote on Instagram that his "mum nearly crashed her car" when he told her he'd been nominated for an Emmy. He's "so proud to be nominated alongside" Goldstein, his "hunk of a castmate," he added.

Dunster started out his role as a selfish, egotistical, ball-hog version of Jamie Tartt, but by the final season, he'd transformed the AFC Richmond striker into a team player — and one with far more emotional maturity than viewers thought possible.

Goldstein is a bit of a pro at this point having been nominated for his role as irritable, former soccer player Roy Kent for the last three years running.

He's taken home the award both times he was previously nominated — in 2021 and 2022 — and in his second acceptance speech, he joked about swearing too much the first time around. "Last time I was here, I was told not to wear and I did and I'm sorry but it meant the feed got cut back home in the U.K. so my family never got to hear me say this, so thank you for this second chance," Goldstein, 43, said before slippingin yet another expletive.

Marsden, 50, earned his first-ever Emmy nomination this year for Freevee's breakout hit Jury Duty, telling PEOPLE that he and the cast had "many, many big plans for celebration" after they learned of the recognition. He also admitted that his first call after learning of the nomination was to unwitting star Ronald Gladden, who went from target of a large-scale improv conspiracy on the show to one of Marsden's real-life friends. "I just wanted that to be my first call and make sure he's still enjoying all of this, and feeling like we're all going through it together."

The show scored three other nominations, including outstanding comedy series, outstanding writing in a comedy series and outstanding casting for a comedy series.

For the second consecutive year, Tyler James Williams was nominated for his role as first grade teacher Gregory Eddie in Abbott Elementary. In the sitcom's second season, Gregory and Janine Teagues (Quinta Brunson) shared a long-awaited kiss — but the fate of the elementary school teachers was left up in the air and remains a hot topic for the forthcoming third season.

The show earned eight total nominations at this year's awards, including outstanding comedy series. Williams' costars Brunson, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Janelle James and Taraji P. Henson were also recognized for their work.

Winkler, 78, scored his ninth Emmy nomination this year as his role of Gene Cousineau on Barry earned him another nod. It's a role he called a "miracle" as he reflected on the periods of time in his career where he's struggled to find roles in an AARP Magazine interview last year.

He was previously nominated in the same category in 2018, 2019 and 2022, and he took home the award that first year. In his acceptance speech for the long-awaited award, he said, "If you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you."

Winkler previously joked about awards: "Actors sometimes say, 'I don't really care about winning. I have my Emmy or my whatever, and it's a doorstop in the bathroom.' They're lying!"

Winkler's other career Emmy nominations include three outstanding lead actor in a comedy series nods in the '70s for Happy Days and a 2000 outstanding guest actor in a drama series for The Practice, just to name a few.
