Idris Elba has won another award for his role in Beasts of No Nation, reports BBC News. Don’t get us wrong, we’re not surprised by any means, it just leaves us thinking, “What can’t this man do?

Elba just recently returned home to the U.K. after attending the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles, where he made history, winning two awards. He was still enjoying the honor, expressing his thanks in the below Instgram post just a few days ago:

He didn’t have much down time before it was time to head out for the London Evening Standard British Film Awards (February 7). Elba took home the Best Actor award at last night’s ceremony for his role as Commandment in the film adaptation of Uzodinma Iweala’s 2005 novel by the same name, detailing civil war in West Africa.

Elba wasn’t the only familiar face to take home a win, with Dame Maggie Smith winning Best Actress for her role in Lady in the Van. The film was based on author Alan Bennett’s memoir. Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan, was awarded Best Film. You can see the entire list of winners here.

In addition to last night’s win, Elba recently won the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Actor for his role as DCI John Luther on Luther, a SAG Award for Best Actor also for Luther, and a SAG Award for Best Supporting Actor for Beasts of No Nation, all in the past few weeks. Elba’s wins are amazing, but his acceptance speeches are even better: 

But he’s not letting the accolades get to his head:

Cheers to you, Idris Elba. You know what you’re doing!
