Emmys 2013: Bobby Cannavale of 'Boardwalk Empire' wins Supporting Drama Actor
Bobby Cannavale has won the 2013 Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series for his role on the HBO series "Boardwalk Empire," marking his second win and fourth nomination.
The 43-year-old New Jersey native beat Jim Carter of PBS' "Downton Abbey," Peter Dinklage of HBO's "Game of Thrones," Mandy Patinkin of Showtime's "Homeland" and "Breaking Bad" stars Jonathan Banks and Aaron Paul -- last year's winner.
"Boardwalk Empire" debuted in 2010 and stars Steve Buscemi as Enoch "Nucky" Thompson, a corrupt political leader and gangster in Atlantic City during the Prohibition era. Cannavale played gangster Gyp Rosetti during season 3 in 2012. The show returned for a fourth season earlier this month.
Cannavale won his first Emmy in 2005, for his guest role as Vince in the comedy series "Will & Grace." He was also nominated this year for his guest recurring role as Dr. Mike Cruz in the Showtime series "Nurse Jackie" but lost to Dan Bucatinsky of the ABC show "Scandal" during a preliminary ceremony, the Creative Arts Emmys, last Sunday. Cannavale also earned an Emmy nod for his guest role on "Nurse Jackie" in 2012.
The 2013 Emmy Awards ceremony was held at L.A. Live's Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, September 22. The event was hosted by "How I Met Your Mother" star Neil Patrick Harris, who previously hosted the ceremony in 2009.
