Better Call Saul actor Bob Odenkirk, who is known for his role as Saul Goodman(Jimmy McGill) in the series, experienced a bittersweet joy after nominations for the 72nd annual Emmy Awards were unveiled Tuesday.
Netflix’s Ozark, HBO’s Succession led drama categories with 18 nominations each, and AMC’s Better Call Saul also nominated drama categories. But, Better Call Saul’s fans are not happy for these nominees list, because neither Bob Odenkirk nor Rhea Seehorn have been nominated for Emmy awards.
However, Odenkirk shared his thoughts about the 2020 Emmy complete list of nominees on his Twitter page and said that although he wasn’t nominated, co-star Rhea Seehorn should had been nominated. He tweeted:
“I am so proud our show is included in this stellar list of well-done story-telling! Wish Rhea had been nominated, she has just killed it the past two seasons on BCS.”
The 57-year-old actor also congratulated Giancarlo Esposito(Gus Fring), who is nominated ‘Supporting Actor’ in a drama series. He continued:
“Happy for the GREAT Giancarlo Esposito! And the writers and all! Good stuff”
The Emmy Awards will air September 20 on ABC, and it was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones was joined by Laverne Cox, Josh Gad, and Tatiana Maslany to announce the nominations.
