At the 2020 remote edition of the Primetime Emmy Awards, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II won his first Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his powerful role on HBO’s Watchmen.
Also praising his co-stars, the actor talked about what he learned from the HBO miniseries. The Watchman becomes a tale approximately trauma. It was a story about the enduring brand of white domestic terrorism. It was a story about police corruption and cruelty, but in the midst of all this, it was also the story of a deity who came down to the earth and was drawn to a black woman whom she loved, who she deserved.
Said, “Abdul-Mateen II.” They did all of that in the body of a black man, and I’m so proud that I was able to walk with those shoes, which is why I dedicate this award to all the black women in my life.
Watchman is an American superhero drama limited television series based on the 1986 DC Comics series Watchmen, produced by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. The television series was produced for HBO by Damon Lindelof, who also served as an executive producer and writer.
