Edgar Ramirez aka Emmy nominee for CARLOS

If you missed CARLOS, our “mesmerizing” 3-part miniseries that aired back in October, the one that “garnered some of the longest articles of praise in newspapers across the country,” (Yeah, we’re kind of patting ourselves on the back about that one) then you missed a knockout performance from Edgar Ramirez, who was just nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries/Movie (more back-patting). And Director Olivier Assayas has been nominated for Outstanding Directing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Dramatic Special. First off, congratulations to Edgar and Olivier! Not that we’re surprised or anything, but still, way to go! We’ll be watching as you go up against your fellow nominees on awards night, September 18, 2011.
