Kirsten Dunst was nominated as Lead Actress in a Limited Series for her role in “Fargo” for the 68th Emmy Awards.
The 34-year-old American-German actress competes for the title alongside Felicity Huffman for “American Crime,” Audra McDonald for “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grille,” Sarah Paulson for “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” Lili Taylor for “American Crime,” and Kerry Washington for “Confirmation.”
The “Hidden Figures” star plays as Peggy Blumquist for “Fargo.” She is a beautician who is on her journey to self-actualization.
During a recent interview, Dunst talked about her role, saying that she was making a “little witch’s brew of stuff.” She described her role as someone who has her own world.
“She probably should be on some meds. She’s a victim of the time and she’s trying to break boundaries, and I think she thinks she’s invincible,” she said.
On her nomination for lead actress for a limited series for the 68th Emmy Awards, Kirsten Dunst said it was an honor.
However, she wished people will just nominate and no one had to win as she thinks comparing ones craft from the other is the “thief of joy,” New York Times said.
In 1995, she was also nominated as Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for the 1994 hit movie “Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles,” IMDB said.
Kirsten Dunst won the Saturn Award for “Melancholia” in 2012, for the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, and was nominated in 2003 for the same award for “Spider-man.”
The actress started her Hollywood career when she was included in the cast of Woody Allen’s short film “Oedipus Wrecks.” She became popular after her famous portrayal as Mary Jane Watson for “Spider-Man.”
The 68th Emmy Awards will be on September 18.
