ICM Partners’ Clients Receive Three Emmy Nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series
Ahead of this year’s 72nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, ICM Partners would like to congratulate our clients Mark Duplass, Giancarlo Esposito, and Bradley Whitford for their nominations in the category for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
Mark Duplass was nominated for his role as Producer Chip Black on Apple TV+’s The Morning Show. The story explores the lives of the men and women who create a morning talk show, with a focus on gender biases in the workplace. Along with his brother and fellow ICM Partners’ client Jay Duplass, Mark is also known for his writing, producing, and directing credits. In 2018 he won his first Emmy for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series for Netflix’s Wild Wild Country. Duplass served as an Executive Producer under his production banner Duplass Brothers.
This year earned Giancarlo Esposito a second nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Gus Fring on AMC’s Better Call Saul. However, as Better Call Saul is a prequel series to the award-winning crime drama Breaking Bad, where Esposito began his role as Gus Fring, this year’s nomination is technically the third Emmy nomination Esposito has received for playing the Machiavellian methamphetamine distributor. In addition to his nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor this year, Esposito was also nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his role as the equally fierce Moff Gideon in Disney +’s The Mandelorian.
Bradley Whitford is already a three-time Emmy Award winner, and this year marks the actor’s second nomination for his role on Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale. In the television adaptation of the Margaret Atwood novel, Whitford plays Commander Joseph Lawrence, the lead architect of Gilead’s dystopian society. In 2019, Whitford won an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for the same role. The ICM Partners’ client won his first Emmy in 2001 for his performance on NBC’s The West Wing, and he received his second Emmy award for his guest appearance on Amazon Original’s Transparent.
