No One Was More Surprised by Jodie Comer’s Emmy Win Than Jodie Comer

No One Was More Surprised by Jodie Comer’s Emmy Win Than Jodie Comer
Jodie Comer is remarkably close with her family — which is why, ironically, the “Killing Eve” star didn’t bother to invite them to the Emmys this past weekend.

It’s not that she didn’t want them to fly in from Liverpool and be there to cheer her on. But Comer had no expectation of winning the bloody trophy and didn’t want them to be disappointed.

“It’s nice to bring your parents to these things,” she says. “But I just said, ‘Oh no, sit this one out. Now’s not my time.’ I’m probably not going to ever live that one down with them, or they’ll be coming to every single thing now!”

Comer won the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama, beating out contenders Laura Linney, Viola Davis, Robin Wright, Mandy Moore, Emilia Clarke and her “Killing Eve” co-star, Sandra Oh. At 26, Comer

Sandra Oh, Lena Headey and 6 more overdue actors overlooked again by unsentimental Emmy voters

Sandra Oh, Lena Headey and 6 more overdue actors overlooked again by unsentimental Emmy voters
The Emmys are a notoriously unsentimental bunch, as we saw last week with the guest categories, passing over overdue favorites Phylicia Rashad and Adam Sandler. Several actors went into Sunday’s Emmy telecast with numerous losses under their belt, hoping this may finally be their time to go from bridesmaid to bride. Would Sandra Oh finally find herself wielding an Emmy statuette? Could actors on the last seasons of their shows get a farewell hug, like Lena Headey? (See full list of Emmy winners.)

The TV academy has gone for a few performers in their final seasons, like Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”) and Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”), but there are also countless instances of actors never winning for iconic performances, like Steve Carell in “The Office,” Martin Sheen in “The West Wing” and Amy Poehler in “Parks and Recreation.” Unfortunately, there were no instances of majorly overdue actors winning at this year’s Emmys,

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.

Jodie Comer (‘Killing Eve’) upset Emmy win moved her past Lindsay Wagner and Gillian Anderson in the record books

Jodie Comer (‘Killing Eve’) upset Emmy win moved her past Lindsay Wagner and Gillian Anderson in the record books
Most of us Emmy pundits didn’t see Jodie Comer‘s Best Drama Actress victory for “Killing Eve” coming. Her co-star Sandra Oh was the odds-on favorite, but the fact that Comer’s victory was a surprise overshadowed the fact that her win was also unprecedented. At age 26, Comer became the youngest woman ever to win Best Drama Actress.

Twenty-somethings winning at the Oscars is commonplace — from Gwyneth Paltrow (“Shakespeare in Love”) to Jennifer Lawrence (“Silver Linings Playbook”) to Brie Larson (“Room”), to name a few. But it’s far less typical at the Emmys, where only two other women have won south of 30. Lindsay Wagner was 28 when she prevailed for “The Bionic Woman” in 1977. And Gillian Anderson was 29 when she was awarded for “The X-Files” in 1997.

Jodie Comer (‘Killing Eve’) overcomes vote-splitting to win Best Drama Actress Emmy over co-star Sandra Oh
Jodie Comer (“Killing Eve”) just overcame massive vote-splitting at Sunday’s Emmy ceremony to win Best Drama Actress over co-star Sandra Oh. Only eight of Gold Derby’s 31 Experts accurately forecasted Comer’s victory. Conversely, a whopping 21 were confident Oh would prevail despite both leading ladies clamoring for votes. This was Comer’s first career acting Emmy nomination, while Oh previously came up short for her roles on “Grey’s Anatomy” (2005-09) and “Killing Eve” (2018). This year’s other five nominees were Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”), Laura Linney (“Ozark”), Robin Wright (“House of Cards”), Mandy Moore (“This Is Us”) and Viola Davis (“How to Get Away with Murder”).

Surprise: The second season of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s critically acclaimed Amazon comedy “Fleabag” also picked up an award for comedy writing on Sunday, but it was Waller-Bridge’s acting win that proved most surprising. She won the trophy over “Veep” star Julia Louis-Drefus, snapping the Emmy darling’s six-time winning streak.

Snub: “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus has more acting Emmys than any other performer, but she was bested for the first time in the seven years of “Veep” on Sunday, by “Fleabag” star Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
