The sidekick and best friend of Easttown have each won an Emmy.

Evan Peters won best supporting actor in a limited series or TV movie for HBO's "Mare of Easttown" on Sunday night, and Julianne Nicholson won best supporting actress for the show.

Nicholson won for playing the best friend of Kate Winslet's title character, a Pennsylvania detective trying to solve a murder amid struggles with family and friends.

Peters won for playing Winslet's partner.

Both praised the show's star from the stage.

"Man, you're good at acting," Nicholson said to Winslet.

It was the first Emmy, and first nomination, for both Peters and Nicholson.
