Although Michael K. Williams didn’t take home a posthumous #Emmy, presenter Kerry Washington said the late actor’s spirit was present during an emotional tribute.
Variety Kerry Washington paid tribute to Michael K. Williams at the #Emmys: “Michael was…a brilliantly talented actor and a generous human being who has left us far too soon. Michael, your excellence and artistry will endure.
After five nominations, the late Michael K. Williams was favored to win his first Emmy for Lovecraft Country. But The Crown’s Tobias Menzies emerged victorious.
What people are saying?
Jeff Sneider Important to keep in mind that Emmy voting closed prior to MKW’s death. LOVECRAFT COUNTRY was never going to be an Emmy darling. THE CROWN, obviously, is poised to win a bunch of top awards tonight. Feared “vote splits” among actors on the same show not really happening tonight.
Scott Feinberg Jesus… Tobias Menzies is great… but bummer that Michael K. Williams leaves us 0 for 5 at the Emmys, never even NOMINATED for THE WIRE or BOARDWALK EMPIRE. Note: This year’s voting was over before he died.
