In a much-deserved win for his role of Norman Josiffe/Norman Scott in 'A Very English Scandal', Ben Whishaw won his Emmys 2019 nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Limited Series Or Movie. 

Taking to the stage to accept the award, Ben complained of being hungover for the award ceremony. "I'm hungover. My agent took me out for drinks, and I'm hungover," he said.

"I want to thanks Steven Frears for being a wonderful director. I want to thank the magnificent actors and especially Hugh Grant." The actor also thanked his partner for having his back throughout the show. 

The three-part fact-based comedy-drama miniseries was based on John Preston's book of the same name - a dramatisation of the 1976-1979 Jeremy Thorpe scandal. 

Fans are every glad of Whishaw's win. "Ben was really great in 'A Very English Scandal' and also he’s just great in life," said one fan. Others wouldn't stop raving about Whishaw's acting calibre. "Congratulations Ben Whishaw! They made the very best choice. You were fabulous in A Very English Scandal. Your indelible performance will live long in my memory," said one. "That said, Emmy winner Ben Whishaw has a delicious ring to it. Really one of the best actors working out there; he basically ran the show in 'A Very English Scandal' IMO. #Emmys #Emmys2019," said another
