Michelle Williams looks strong to pull a Sarah Paulson with an awards sweep for ‘Fosse/Verdon’

Michelle Williams looks strong to pull a Sarah Paulson with an awards sweep for ‘Fosse/Verdon’
Michelle Williams has been one of the most under-awarded actors in recent memory, at least when it comes to the major awards bodies. But that will all probably change in a few months; in fact, it already is changing. After winning the Television Critics Association Award and Emmy for her transcendent performance as Gwen Verdon on “Fosse/Verdon,” she looks poised to be the second person to complete a sweep of the five biggest awards for TV acting in a single season once the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice and Screen Actors Guild Awards roll around in January.

Only one person has collected all five awards in one season for a single performance — and it was another star on an FX limited series who portrayed a real person: Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark on “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” Like Williams, Paulson started her run at the TCA Awards,

Game Of Thrones, Chernobyl, and Fleabag Win Big at the Emmy Awards; Here's the Full List of Winners

The 2019 Emmy Awards took place last night, and there were a lot of fan-favorite shows that won big! I was personally very happy to see HBO’s Chernobyl win Outstanding Limited Series along with the two other awards it took home. It was also awesome to see Bill Hader win for Outstanding Comedy Actor for his role in Barry. That is certainly a deserved win as he’s awesome in that series!

Regardless of what fans thought about the ending of Game of Thrones, the series did win Outstanding Drama Series. I imagine it won for everything that it accomplished as a whole. Peter Dinklage also won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series again, which is great!

Then there’s the Amazon series Fleabag, which took home four awards including Outstanding Comedy Series. I’ve never watched the show, but plan to start watching it soon.

Amazing victories for Jharrel Jerome, Billy Porter, “Fleabag,” and an epic acceptance speech by Michelle Williams. I wish Williams were eligible for another Emmy next year for that speech, because it was a stunner in which she urged Hollywood to pay women — especially women of color — the money and respect they’re worth. – Daniel Montgomery

Age bias no more: Jharrel Jerome and Julia Garner winning puts an end to the belief that only people of a certain age can win categories.

‘When They See Us’ Star Jharrel Jerome: ‘Our Strongest Stories Are the Stories of Pain’
When They See Us” star and newly minted Emmy winner Jharrel Jerome was posed a tough question backstage after taking lead actor in a limited series or movie.

A reporter asked Jerome why people of color seem to win major awards only for stories that detail their trials and tribulations.

“Unfortunately, I think our strongest stories are the stories of pain, considering that’s what we go through on a daily basis,” he said. “Our pain needs to be told, so if it has to be for the next 20 years we’re just painfully telling our stories until we move on, then it has to be.”

Jerome nabbed the Emmy for his work as the real-life Korey Wise, one of the members of a wrongfully convicted group of young men who came to be known as the Central Park Five before they were exonerated years later.

Michelle Williams Advocates for Equal Pay in Powerful Emmys Speech, Earns Standing Ovation

Michelle Williams Advocates for Equal Pay in Powerful Emmys Speech, Earns Standing Ovation
When Michelle Williams won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited TV Series or Movie for “Fosse/Verdon,” she used her time at the podium to champion equal pay in the industry. Williams was at the center of national headlines a couple years ago for the pay disparity between her and Mark Wahlberg on reshoots for their Ridley Scott-directed drama “All the Money in the World.” Wahlberg made a reported $1.5 million for reshoots on the movie, while Williams worked for the SAG minimum of $80 per day. Wahlberg ended up donating his salary from the reshoots to Time’s Up.

“I see this as an acknowledgement of what is possible when a woman is trusted and feels safe enough to voice her needs and respected enough to be heard … my bosses never presumed to know better than I did about what I needed in order to do my job and honor Gwen Verdon,” Williams said. “Thank you so much to FX and Fox 21 studios for supporting me and paying me equally, because they understood that when you put value into a person, it empowers that person to get in touch with their own inherent value. Where do they put that value? They put it into their work.”

It also won writing and directing Sunday night for Craig Mazin and Johan Renck, respectively. The victory brings HBO’s total in the category to 10, tying it with record holders ABC and NBC.

‘Chernobyl’ Wins Emmy for Outstanding Limited Series
Chernobyl” was one of 2019’s most celebrated shows, and the acclaimed HBO historical drama secured its mark on television history by winning the Emmy for Outstanding Limited Series Sunday evening.

The five-part miniseries dramatized the Soviet Union’s 1986 nuclear disaster and the subsequent cleanup efforts. “Chernobyl” was often a harrowing and bleak watch—understandable, given its subject matter—but that didn’t stop critics from praising the series. IndieWire’s Ben Travers gave the show an A- and referred to it as a “stunning dramatization” in his April review.

Series creator and writer Craig Mazin gave special thanks to the people of Lithuania, where much of “Chernobyl” was filmed, in an acceptance speech. Mazin also won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series or TV Movie earlier in the evening. Mazin’s dark writing some creative liberties, but much of “Chernobyl” was rooted in historical accuracy. Actors including Jared Harris,

Michelle Williams Wins Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie
Michelle Williams has won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her portrayal of Gwen Verdon in FX’s “Fosse/Verdon.”

The biographical miniseries told the story of director-choreographer Bob Fosse (Sam Rockwell) and Verdon, a celebrated actress and dancer. Although the two married and were immensely influential on American entertainment, the duo faced numerous obstacles, including Fosse’s infidelity and medical issues. “Fosse/Verdon” dramatized their story, and Rockwell and Williams portrayed their characters throughout multiple stages of their life.

Williams expressed support for equal pay in the entertainment industry during her acceptance speech, noting that those who feel empowered will reinvest their energy into their art.

The actress discussed her work on “Fosse/Verdon” with IndieWire in an expansive interview last month and noted the complexities of portraying a character’s different ages for a single project. It was significantly more involved than

‘When They See Us’ star Jharrel Jerome makes Emmy history as first man in his 20s to win limited series/TV movie actor
Age is just a number indeed. With his victory for Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor for “When They See Us” at Sunday’s Primetime Emmy Awards, Jharrel Jerome is now the first person in his 20s to win the category and is the category’s second youngest winner ever.

The 21-year-old is only eclipsed by Anthony Murphy, who was just 17 when he prevailed for “Tom Brown’s Schooldays” in 1973, which was also his first and only acting role. Younger performers historically haven’t fared well in this category, which was first awarded in 1955; veterans and middle-aged men have been the primary recipients. Only 12 men in their 30s have won — including the past two years for Riz Ahmed (“The Night Of”) and Darren Criss (“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”) — and twentysomethings are rarely even nominated.

Patricia Arquette Calls for Trans Rights in Tribute to Her Late Sister Alexis During Emmy Acceptance Speech
Patricia Arquette paid tribute to her late sister, Alexis, and argued for transgender rights during her Emmy acceptance speech on Sunday.

“I just have to say I’m grateful to be working. I’m grateful at 50 to be getting the best parts of my life. And that’s great, but in my heart I’m so sad that I lost my sister Alexis, and that trans people are still being persecuted,” she said, while accepting the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie.

“I’m in mourning every day of my life, Alexis, and I will be for the rest of my life for you, until we change the world so that trans people are not persecuted,” she continued. “And give them jobs. They’re human beings, let’s give them jobs. Let’s get rid of this bias that we have everywhere.”
