The nominations for the Emmy Awards 2017 were declared today and we were pleasantly surprised to find our very own Riz Ahmed was nominated not for one but two categories of the most competitive television award show.
Riz has been nominated in the lead actor category in HBO’s limited series The Night Of and also for the best guest actor for his stint in HBO’s Girls where he plays the love interest of the beautiful Lena Dunham.
Riz’s role in The Night Of as Nasir Khan, has been appreciated by many. The intensity with which he delivered the role truly commands respect. He put in a lot of hard work and dedication for this role and we truly hope that it pays off.
Riz himself is ecstatic to be nominated for more than a single category of the Emmys and his message on Twitter says it all!
