The best supporting actor Emmy Awards for a limited series have gone to Jeff Daniels and Merritt Wever of the Netflix western “Godless.”

It’s the second Emmy win for Daniels, who previously won best lead actor in a drama series for HBO’s “The Newsroom” in 2013.

The 63-year-old Daniels played outlaw Frank Griffin on the Netflix Western.

It’s the second Emmy for Wever, who also won best supporting actress in a comedy series for “Nurse Jackie” in 2013.

In the Netflix western “Godless” she played Mary Agnes McNue, the widow of a town’s mayor and sister of its sheriff, who is skeptical of a mining company that comes to town.

Daniels is also nominated Monday night for best actor in a limited series for “The Looming Tower.”

In his acceptance speech, he thanked his horse on “Godless,” which he said threw him and broke his left wrist. Daniels, holding up his Emmy with his left hand, said it is now officially healed.’
