Transparent, the brand new Amazon comedy-drama has picked up two Emmys at yesterday’s award ceremony.
The show’s star Jeffrey Tambor and its director won an Emmy each at yesterday’s ceremony for their roles in Amazon’s hit show Transparent, which follows the lives of a family after their father reveals that he is trans. Transparent also won best guest actor in a comedy for the former West Wing star Bradley Whitford.
“I had a teacher who used to say, you know, ‘When you act, you have to act as if your life depends on it.’ And now I’ve been given the opportunity to act because people’s lives depend on it.
“I’d like to dedicate my performance and this award to the transgender community. Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your courage. Thank you for your stories. Thank you for our inspiration. Thank you for letting us be part of the change. God bless.”
