“How did Oscar Isaac not get nominated for #MoonKnight ?” one fan requested. “Did you SEE him?! Freaking master class!”
The present Moon Knight was itself nominated for eight Emmys, by the best way. That contains for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance for F. Murray Abraham as Konshu, the Egyptian God who grants Marc/Steven their powers within the superhero present. That was the only actor-focused nomination for the present, nonetheless, with lots of the different nods going to things like cinematography, costumes, music, and stunts.
As far as one fan was involved, each Isaac and May Calamawy’s snub for her wonderful efficiency as Layla El-Faouly constitutes “my villain origin story.”
In Moon Knight, Isaac performs a personality with dissociative identification disorder, AKA a number of personalities, making his efforts as a thespian all of the extra spectacular within the function. For that purpose, although it’s a superhero present, we couldn’t agree extra with one fan’s evaluation that Isaac’s “acting was top notch there.”
With Marvel alums like Andrew Garfield, Michael Keaton, and Sebastian Stan all being nominated in the identical class as Isaac, there’s little question that the competitors will probably be stiff for certain.

Funnily sufficient, Isaac’s efficiency because the titular Moon Knight just isn’t the primary time he’s performed a super-powered particular person with an Egyptian theme on this planet of Marvel.
