Actor Sam Heughan has jumped to international fame for playing the role as Scottish Warrior Jamie Fraser in Outlander (Starz) TV Show. Now, his fans and followers are millions, and every day is news and trend in social networks. In fact, I don’t have any doubt about his future, because he will be a Hollywood star soon. However, he was ignored in 2015 Emmy nominations. Not only him! Outlander, being one of the Top#1 2015 TV show, only received one Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score). Unfair!
Of course, other more popular awards disagreed with Emmy lists (in fact, nearly everybody has protested). Thus, Outlander won the EWwy award for Best Drama Series. Caitriona Balfe playing the role as Claire Fraser won the Best Actress award. And Tobias Menzies, who played the two characters Frank and Jack Randall, won the Best Supporting actor award. Outlander absolutely rocks! And of course, Sam Heughan won the Best Actor in a drama series award with over 82 percent of the votes.
No doubt, Sam Heughan is a wonderful actor. In the EWwy awards, he had serious oponents, but he won the election by a landslide. Andrew Lincoln of The Walking Dead came in second with over 10 percent of the votes and Timothy Olyphant of Justified came in third.
Remember that on August 15, 2014, after only the pilot episode had aired, Starz renewed the series for a second season of at least 13 episodes, based on the second book in Gabaldon’s series, Dragonfly in Amber.
