Apple TV+ scored its first Emmy win ever, as Billy Crudup’s received the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his performance in “The Morning Show.” Apple TV+ had 18 nominations for last night’s virtual Primetime Emmy Awards.
Crudup had previously won the 2020 Critics’ Choice Award for his role as Cory Ellison, the charismatic network executive that advances his career by taking advantage of a television network in crisis.
Crudup’s Emmy nomination was one of eight for “The Morning Show.” Steve Carell, Jennifer Aniston, Mark Duplass, and Martin Short all earned acting nominations, while Mimi Leder earned a directing nomination. The show’s colorful opening title sequence and overall production design were also nominated.
Apple also previously won a pair of Daytime Emmys for Apple TV+ children’s shows “Ghostwriter” and “Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 10.”
