Julia Garner won at the 2022 Emmy Awards ceremony for her role of Ruth in Netflix ’s Ozark . This was Garner’s third time winning the trophy, previously taking the accolade in 2019 and again in 2020. “First of all, I want to thank the Television Academy,” she said still surprised by her win. “I want to thank everybody at Netflix and MRC. I want to thank our showrunner Chris Mundy and all the writers in the writer’s room. Thank you for writing Ruth, she’s changed my life.” Emmy Red Carpet Photos: Best Looks Of 2022 Garner continued, “I want to thank Jason Bateman for taking a chance on me and Laura Linney, you’ve been such a guiding light to me. And I just feel really grateful, I feel really grateful to be here and to play Rith and to be with such amazing, beautiful artists and I love you all and now I gotta go.

Patricia Arquette was nominated for her … [Read more...] about Julia Garner Wins At Emmys & Takes 3rd Award For ‘Ozark’: “Thank You For Writing Ruth, She’s Changed My Life”
Well, this almost never happens. With an expanded field of eight nominees, not a single one of this year’s nominees was invited to the party last year. This is a completely different field than the eight nominees from last season. That doesn’t mean this is a lineup of all newcomers. Half of the nominees have in fact been here before but simply didn’t have new seasons ready to be considered for the 73rd Emmys. With that in mind, veterans of the category, Better Call Saul , Ozark and Stranger Things will try to finally win the elusive crown, just as last year’s victor — uh, The Crown — finally managed (it is not eligible this time). There is one — and only one — among the nominees that knows what it is like to win here — 2020 champ Succession . Can it prevail again or will a past nominee or a newcomer to this race go all the way instead? Last weekend’s Creative Arts ceremonies indicate this may be a closer race than some people thought. Better Call Saul , AMC … [Read more...] about Pete Hammond’s Emmy Predictions 2022: Outstanding Drama Series — Is It ‘Succession’ Again Or Is An Upset In Store?
Squid Game star Lee Jung-jae made Emmy history tonight as the first first foreign-language actor to win Lead Actor in a Drama Series — he was also the first such actor to ever be nominated. While Lee was Deadline’s predicted winner in the category, he took home the trophy against a packed field that included Jason Bateman for Ozark , Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong — each for Succession and Adam Scott for Severance . The actor thanked show creator Hwang Dong-hyuk “for making a realistic problem we all face come to life so creatively on the screen with a great script and amazing visuals.” He also, at the top of his speech, thanked God, the TV Academy and Netflix — in that order. Emmy Red Carpet Photos: Best Looks Of 2022 When asked by Deadline’s Pete Hammond in Cannes what it was like becoming a globally-recognized star overnight after 30 years in the business in Korea Lee said , “That shows that the globe is just one big network now without any silos.

Euphoria maker A24 is on board to co-produce and distribute a full season of acclaimed BBC Three comedy Dreaming Whilst Black . The order comes after an award-winning pilot last year and four years after creator Adjani Salmon released his original short-form online series of the same name through the BBC. The series will air in 2023, with indie film studio A24 selling it internationally. The pilot’s producer Big Deal Films ( Coconut , Holier Than Thou ) is co-producing the six-part series, which comes from Salmon, whose pilot last year won him a BAFTA Craft Award for Emerging Talent: Fiction and the Royal Television Society’s 2022 Breakthrough Award among others. That was adapted from Salmon and Ali Hughes’ web series, which launched in 2018 on BBC Three when it was an online-only service. Loosely inspired by real life events, Dreaming Whilst Black follows aspiring filmmaker Kwabena (Salmon) in and out of reality as he tries to make it in ‘Babylon.’ … [Read more...] about ‘Dreaming Whilst Black’: A24 Boards Full Season Of Adjani Salmon’s BBC Three Web Comedy
