Emmy Awards 2020
It was a disappointing evening for the Irish nominated at this year’s virtual Emmy Awards, which saw Pop TV’s Schitt’s Creek lead the way with seven awards on the night.

HBO original series’ were also well represented with dystopic superhero drama Watchmen and dynasty drama Succession both picking up four awards each.

Among the five Irish nominees were the cast and crew of Element Pictures’ hugely successful drama series Normal People with Kildare native Paul Mescal nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series alongside Hugh Jackman, Jeremy Pope, and Mark Ruffalo. The award was given to Ruffalo for his performance in I know This Much Is True, however Mescal’s nomination at 24-years-old is considered a significant achievement in itself.

Normal People’s casting agent Louise Kiely also missed out on the casting award for a Limited Series to Victoria Thomas CSA and Meagan Lewis CSA for their work on Watchmen, while Watchmen creator and writer Damon Lindelof and Cord Jefferson also piped Sally Rooney & Alice Birch to the award for Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series.

Veteran Irish actress Fiona Shaw, who was nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category for Killing Eve, missed out on the award to Ozark’s Julia Garner.

Unorthodox’s Maria Schrader picked up the Emmy for directing in a limited series beating both Normal People’s Lenny Abrahamson and Irish-American director Steph Green for Watchmen.
