“The Oscars. You’re on notice, mother&$%ers. Maybe we can get a token VFX nod next year!” Ryan Reynolds Accept Creative Arts Emmy As Deadpool
On January 7th the Television Academy presented the second of its two 75th Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremonies honoring outstanding artistic and technical achievement in television at the Peacock Theater at L.A. LIVE. The ceremony awarded many talented artists and craftspeople in categories including animation, documentary/nonfiction, game shows, reality and variety series.
FX’s “Welcome To Wrexham” won five Emmys and Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, executive producers on the show, accepted the award… kinda. McElhenney started off thanking the Television Academy only to be hilariously interrupted by the Merc with a Mouth.
“Mr. Lively couldn’t be here to accept this broken Emmy, so he sent me on his behalf. First and foremost, Wrexham, we love you. Thank you for letting Rob and the other guy tell your story. Cymru am byth, bitches . I’d also like to thank The Academy for this honor and for not asking us to attend the televised awards show with the real celebrities.
I’d also like to thank FX and Disney for their support and in exchange, Mr. Lively promises to not f&$k up my next movie.
Lastly The Oscars. You’re on notice, mother&$%ers. Maybe we can get a token VFX nod next year! The amount of work on Hugh and Ryan’s face alone is at least worth a nod.
Welcome to Wrexham. All episodes now streaming on Hulu and Disney.”
The FX show won 5 Emmys including OUTSTANDING CINEMATOGRAPHY FOR A REALITY PROGRAM, OUTSTANDING UNSTRUCTURED REALITY PROGRAM, OUTSTANDING DIRECTING FOR A REALITY PROGRAM, OUTSTANDING PICTURE EDITING FOR AN UNSTRUCTURED REALITY PROGRAM and OUTSTANDING SOUND MIXING FOR A REALITY PROGRAM (SINGLE OR MULTICAMERA).
Rob McElhenney (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) navigate running the 3rd oldest professional football club in the world. Welcome to Wrexham is a docuseries tracking the dreams and worries of Wrexham, a working-class town in North Wales, UK, as two Hollywood stars take ownership of the town’s historic yet struggling football club.
An edited presentation of the awards presented on both nights of the Creative Arts Emmys will air Saturday, Jan. 13, at 8:00 PM EST/PST on FXX and be available for streaming on Hulu on Sunday, Jan. 14.
