CONGRATULATIONS, Amanda Seyfried, for winning the Emmy Best Actress Awards.
Amanda Seyfried was named the best lead actress for her role in The Dropout at the 2022 Emmy Awards. And it was Amanda’s first-ever Emmy.
Here is more to it.
Amanda Seyfried bags her first Emmy.
It was a night filled with surprises and emotions. Amanda Seyfried burst into tears Monday night after she was named the best lead actress for her role in the movie The Dropout at the 2022 Emmy Awards.
Seyfried won the honor for her performance in The Dropout, a Hulu series based on the podcast of the same name, for which she not only served as a star but also as a producer. She plays Elizabeth Holmes, a real-life businesswoman who founded the biotech company Theranos and claimed to have fundamentally altered how blood tests are carried out.
When her name was called, a visibly shocked Amanda exclaimed, “Oh my god,” and she hugged her husband, Thomas Sadoski, before he led her to the stage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
As Seyfried took the stage to accept her prize, she remarked, “It’s a really nice feeling.” She continued by expressing gratitude to her loved ones and the cast and crew of The Dropout in her acceptance speech.
Toni Collette for The Staircase, Julia Garner for Inventing Anna, Lily James for Pam & Tommy, Sarah Paulson for Impeachment: American Crime Story, and Margaret Qualley for MAID were the other nominees in the category.
Similarly, along with Seyfried’s victory, The Dropout is up for several other Emmys in writing, directing, and Outstanding Limited Series categories.
Acting on The Dropout was the best time of her life.
The Dropout didn’t only earn Amanda Seyfried her first Emmy. It was also one of the best times of her life.
When discussing her experience working on the show, she said, “It was really hard, but it was like the best time of my life.” Because this is a real person with a real story, I had to set my own limitations. It’s something we just did. Because it’s a different Elizabeth Holmes, I had to keep that separate and keep it in mind.
