Michael C. Hall Wins Golden Globe, Briefly Talks About Cancer

Michael C. Hall, who announced last week that he has been undergoing treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma, attended and won at the Golden Globes on Sunday night.

Hall won the award for best actor in a drama for Showtime's Dexter and while he was backstage speaking to reporters he said, "It's nice to see colleagues and for me to show [people] I am doing fine."

The actor had initially wanted to keep his battle with cancer a secret, but was unable to because of award show season.

"I had every intention of keeping it quiet, but because award shows were imminent, I had to make a statement," he said.

He admits that at this point in his life he is just trying to stay positive, "I like to think I have a good head on my shoulders," he said. "I have never been less susceptible to [having a big head] given the more down in the trenches stuff I have been considering."

We wish Michael a speedy recovery!
