“Dexter’s” Michael C. Hall Wins First Golden Globe Following Cancer Announcement

Michael C. Hall, who plays slasher serial killer on the Showtime’s bloody smash Dexter, won his first Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actor In a Television Series, just days after announcing his diagnosis with cancer.

The star is undergoing treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma and wore a wool cap as he accepted his award. He did not mention his illness. Last week a rep for Michael told The Associated Press that the actor was lucky enough to be diagnosed with a “treatable and curable condition,” and thanked his doctors and nurses in Los Angeles for helping him through treatment. The 38-year-old actor is said to be in complete remission.
