And the Emmy Award for Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie goes to…Jharrel Jerome!
Tonight, television’s biggest stars gathered at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles for the 71st annual Emmy Awards. During the ceremony, the 21-year-old actor brought home the statuette for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for playing Korey Wise in When They See Us, which stars Asante Blackk, Caleel Harris and Ethan Herisse.
The Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie category has been around for quite some time, though it was originally called Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie prior to 2015.
Previous winners include Darren Criss for The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, Riz Ahmed for The Night Of, Courtney B. Vance for The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Richard Jenkins for Olive Kitteridge, Benedict Cumberbatch for Sherlock: His Last Vow and Michael Douglas for Behind the Candelabra.
So. Well. Deserved.
