Does Olivia Colman have what it takes to win the Supporting Actress in a Limited Series trophy at the 68th Emmy Awards?
Will the 42-year-old actress, who plays Angela Burr in “The Night Manager,” be successful in snatching the award from last year’s winner Jean Smart of “Fargo”?
Aside from Smart, the nominee from the British-American television miniseries is also set to prove her worth against Kathy Bates and Sarah Paulson of “American Horror Story: Hotel,” Regina King of “American Crime” and Melissa Leo of “All the Way.”
In an interview with Vulture on Thursday, Olivia Colman was asked about her nomination for the Supporting Actress in a Limited Series category in the 68th Emmy Awards.
While she got extra ecstatic upon knowing it, she, however, admitted that she never had the time to celebrate because of her busy schedule.
“I’ve been filming, so I haven’t had much time to celebrate, to be honest. It hasn’t really sunk in,” she said. “It’s incredibly exciting, I still can’t believe it. I’m flying in on Saturday, and show is on Sunday, and I fly back on Monday because I’m filming again on Tuesday.”
“The Night Manager’s” Olivia Colman even joked that since she is “quite nervous,” she “might be quite drunk” when she attends the 68th Emmy Awards.
Meanwhile, it was noted that her character in the AMC series has been mysterious considering that there is only very little backstory about her that has already been presented.
When asked if more “biographical details” on Angela Burr would be disclosed soon, the Supporting Actress in a Limited Series nominee had this to say, “Not really, maybe a little. I thought, in my head anyway, that running through the story was this class battle. “
Going back to her possible fate at the 68th Emmy Awards, Orion Gazette predicted that Olivia Colman would fail to replace three-time winner Jane Smart, who is reportedly a certified Emmy favorite.
