Michael Douglas Thanks Estranged Wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, Family During Emmys Acceptance Speech

Though he arrived solo to the Emmy Awards, Michael Douglas did not leave empty-handed.

After winning Outstanding Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for "Behind The Candelabra," Douglas made some appropriately suggestive jokes about sharing his award with his costar, Matt Damon. However, his public gratitude for his family was what stole the show, as he mentioned his estranged wife, Catherine-Zeta Jones, and his three children.

"I want to thank my wife Catherine for her support, my kids Dylan and Carys, and a shout out for my oldest son Cameron and hoping that I'll be able and they'll allow me to see him soon."

Zeta-Jones and Douglas recently announced their separation and have not been seen together since the announcement. According to Page Six, he's been taking refuge with 83-year-old billionaire and "political puppeteer" George Soros, but we can only hope that his speech was an indication of some form of reconciliation.

Douglas told ET Online of the separation, "Everybody is fine. Nothing really more to say. We were just taking a little break. We’re talking. I think everything will be fine and I’m very hopeful.”

Cameron, Douglas' son from his first marriage to Diandra Luker, is currently imprisoned for drug possession and will remain in jail until 2018.
