Talk about having a good year: Not only did Oscar Isaac star in a little film called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but now he’s won a Golden Globe for his work as Nick Wasicsko in HBO’s Show Me a Hero.

Specifially, Isaac took home the Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television for Show Me a Hero, which told the story of a white middle-class neighborhood’s resistance to a federally mandated public housing development in Yonkers, New York. The show was based on Lisa Belkin’s 1999 book of the same name.

Isaac, scoring his second Globe nomination — the first was in 2014 for his work in Inside Llewyn Davis — beat out fellow nominees Idris Elba, Mark Rylance, David Oyelowo, and Patrick Wilson.
