As Bateman's named was announced, his co-stars' jaws dropped and they immediately jumped to their feet. Bateman's wife's eyes popped wide open, and an ecstatic Laura Linney grabbed his shoulders. As for Bateman himself? He raised his eyebrows.

After a brief moment of simply staring straight forward, the "Ozark" actor and director turned to his wife, smiled a bit and said "Wow."

Bateman's win came at the expense of the directors of "Game of Thrones," "The Handmaid's Tale," "Killing Eve" and "Succession."

In addition to being genuinely shocked, some fans speculated that the star was burning out on the 3-hour broadcast: "He was so ready to go home and hit the sack," one commented.
