The Damon Lindelof produced/written Watchmen sequel series that premiered on HBO back in October of 2019 received 26 prime-time Emmy Awards nominations today. In fact, it’s total tally of noms rivals any of the other time slotters that were nominated this year.
The nine-episode series, which generated soaring amounts of buzz among TV audiences and activated a maelstrom of conversations across the social media landscape regarding its unflinching examination of racism in America, was nominated for Best Limited Series and received nods for cast members Regina King and Jeremy Irons among its considerable roster of nominations.
Academy Award winner Regina King has been nominated for Best Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her unforgettable turn as Angela Abar/Sister Night in HBO’s Watchmen.
Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons nabs a Best Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie Emmy nomination for his brilliant portrayal of Ozymandias in HBO’s Watchmen.
Big, BIG CONGRATS to DC, Warner Bros, HBO, and showrunner Damon Lindelof for knocking it out of the park on this one. So very cool!
