"It's really a hell of a thing to go to work at a place where everyone gives a damn," Hall said in accepting the award, his first. "That's definitely the case with 'Dexter.' It's an amazing group from top to bottom -- such an invigorated sense of collaborative energy all the time. It's a dream job, and I'm so grateful."
Hall revealed last week he has been fighting Hodkin’s lymphoma, with the cancer now in remission.
In accepting his award, the actor sported a black designer Japanese cap on his head.
"It's nice to have an excuse for accessorizing," he joked afterward, People reported.
The 38-year-old actor added that he never planned to reveal his health problems.
"I had every intention of keeping it quiet, but because award shows were imminent, I had to make a statement," Hall said.
