With 18 Emmy nominations on hand, Apple TV Plus won its first Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Award. Billy Crudup bagged the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his performance in “The Morning Show.”
This is Crudup’s second award for the show. He earlier won the 2020 Critics’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor as Cory Ellison. The Morning Show had seven other nominees including lead star Steve Carell, Jennifer Aniston, Mark Duplass, and Martin Short. Director Mimi Leder had a directing nomination and the show itself was nominated for Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Contemporary Program and Main Title Design.
Apple had also scored Daytime Emmys for Apple TV Plus shows “Ghostwriter” and “Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 10” earlier this year.
