Aussie actor Ben Mendelsohn has shocked Hollywood today with his Emmy win for best supporting actor for his role in Bloodline.
He beat Games of Thrones‘ duo Peter Dinklage and Kit Harrington who were the favourites to take out the main prize. In fact Mendelsohn was given an 80-1 long shot to take out the award. We’re sure he’s just as surprised as everyone else!
Others that were in the running for Best Supporting Actor were Better Call Saul’s Jonathan Banks, House of Cards’ Michael Kelly and Ray Donovan’s Jon Voight.
Mendelsohn has been an Aussie favourite in the movie industry since his breakout role in the 1987 hit The Year My Voice Broke. He’s only just starting to make waves in Hollywood with this recent win sure to help sky rocket his already stellar career.
Mendelsohn was not at the Emmy’s ceremony so actress Taraji P Henson accepted it on his behalf.
Sadly Netflix announced last week they were axing the Bloodline series, which was set in the Florida Keys and also co-starred Australian Jacinda Barrett.’
