Matthew McConaughey took home his first Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama last night for his performance in the dramatic film, Dallas Buyer’s Club.

McCounaughey plays Ron Woodroof an electrician and hustler who works around the system to help AIDS patients get the medication they need after he is himself diagnosed with the disease.

The film is based on Woodroof’s story, which was originally told by Bill Minutaglio in the Dallas Morning News in 1992. Before Woodroof’s death in ’92, screen writer Craig Borten conducted hours of interviews and gained access to his personal journals in order to write the screen play.

Many drafts were written, and the film was in talks to be produced twice previously. McConaughey comments on how grateful he is that he was a part of it in his acceptance speech below.
