Hugh Bonneville

Emmy nomination

19 Jul, 2012

Bonneville is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Robert, Earl of Grantham on Downton Abbey.

To be part of a show like Downton Abbey is thrilling enough, that it has been embraced by American audiences to the extent it has and for the show to have received 16 nominations from the Emmy voters this year is astonishing. I can hardly believe that I’ve been nominated alongside five legends of contemporary television drama – Steve, Bryan, Michael, Damian and Jon. I’m truly honoured.
