(AllHipHop News) Lakeith Stanfield borrowed a tactic from Kanye West at the Critics’ Choice Awards last night (December 11).

The star of Atlanta took to the stage after his show lost to Silicon Valley for Best Comedy Series.

“I want to thank everybody for honoring us in this way,” said Stanfield, surprising the winner Tom Lassally and the presenters. “We worked very hard on Silicon Valley and here we are. Thank you.”

The moment was reminiscent of Kanye West’s infamous interruption of Taylor Swift’s Best Female Video victory over Beyoncé at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

Besides Silicon Valley, the FX show was competing against Black-ishFleabagModern FamilyUnbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Veep.

Atlanta did not win Best Comedy Series, but its creator Donald Glover took home the Critics’ Choice award for Best Actor In A Comedy Series.

Glover (aka Childish Gambino) beat out Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Will Forte (The Last Man On Earth), Bill Hader (Documentary Now!), Patrick Stewart (Blunt Talk), and Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent).
