At Boss Casting we’re proud to represent a wide range of successful professional supporting artists for the film and television industry, so we were delighted to hear at this year’s Emmys, it was a big win for the Brits!
Held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, British comedy-drama Fleabag hit the jackpot scooping up four Emmys at last night’s most prestigious television awards.
Fleabag’s actress and writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge took home three awards for best leading comedy actress, best comedy series and best comedy writing, and Harry Bradbeer also won best director for the series.
“For a director, something like Fleabag only comes along once in your life…Thank you Phoebe for coming into my life like some kind of glorious grenade. Scientists are still trying to work out how someone so incredibly talented can be so utterly lovely.”
Also killing the awards was Jodie Comer for her outstanding performance as the ruthless assassin Villanelle in BBC America’s Killing Eve topping off an extraordinary year for the actress who also won a TV Bafta in May for the same role.
Ben Whishaw was also among other British winners who won best supporting actor for his role in BBC One’s A Very English Scandal, and TV host John Oliver won outstanding variety talk series for Last Week Tonight.
In total, 13 of the night’s 27 awards had British involvement, including the three trophies for Chernobyl, which was a Sky/HBO co-production.
Boss Casting are delighted to be a part of the production process for so many outstanding television programmes. We look forward to seeing what upcoming productions will be represented at the next television industry awards. Congratulations to all the nominees.
