It looks like David Schwimmer will soon replace the fame he gained as Ross Geller in “Friends” with recognition for his portrayal of Robert Kardashian in “American Crime Story.” The 49-year old actor has been nominated for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series category.
David Schwimmer received his first nomination for playing Ross Geller in “Friends.” Although the actor’s comedic portrayal was well appreciated by critics and fans, he still wasn’t able to bag the award.
Earlier this year, David Schwimmer played the lead role in AMC’s Feed the Beast TV Show. Unfortunately, the series was cancelled after one season due to poor ratings.
Fortunately, David Schwimmer’s role in “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” was noted for his outstanding portrayal of the character. However, the actor isn’t the only one nominated from the TV Series.
John Travolta and Sterling K. Brown from “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” have also been nominated for the same category. Furthermore, Bokeem Woodbine and Jesse Piemons from “Fargo” TV series will also be competing for the award along with Hugh Laurie from “The Night Manager.”
Last year, Oscar nominee Bill Murray won the award in the same category for playing Jack Kenninson in “Olive Kitterdige.” The actor has again been nominated this year in Outstanding Television Movie category for playing as himself in “A Very Murray Christmas.”
By far, David Schwimmer has received 18 nominations throughout his acting career with 3 wins. However, predictions are suggesting that Sterling K. Brown from “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” will be winning the Primetime Emmy this year.
The 68th Primetime Emmy has been scheduled take place on September 18th at 5:00 PM PDT. Fans can watch the show live on ABC.
