Emmy awards are huge in television circuit. Every year the nominations certainly receive a lot of attention. Well, this year’s nominations have raised a different question altogether. There are many first time actors that have been nominated in leading categories. This indicates the huge change that has happened in the television viewing circuit. TV series have become more sophisticated and roles defined for the actors have been better.
The actors are getting more recognized and are given credit for their works by the audience. All it takes is one role in getting the viewers talking and it could be any. Rami Malek has been in the television circuit for ages. He has done so many shows. But his role as Elliot Alderson in the TV series Mr. Robot as earned him an Emmy nomination.
The TV bug has not left out some of the big movie stars in the Hollywood. Cuba Gooding Jr., an academy winning actor has recently starred in the miniseries which is a part of FX’s anthology series, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. His fantastic performance has earned him an Emmy nod. Gooding now says that he has unlocked a world of opportunities in the television world which was not available to him earlier.
If some of these first time nominees could win, it will be a huge confidence boost to others who are trying to be part of the television industries.
