Kieran Culkin was named Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his performance as the dastardly rogue Roman Roy at the Emmys 2024.
75th Primetime Emmy Awards saw HBO’s drama “Succession” and FX’s “The Bear” emerge as the standout winners, each securing six major awards. “Succession” claimed the title for Best Drama, while “The Bear” was honored as the Best Comedy.
Upon receiving the award, the 41-year-old Culkin first expressed gratitude to his team, co-stars, and the creator of the show, Jesse Armstrong. He quickly transitioned to a more personal note, becoming emotional as he thanked his mother, Patricia, for giving him life and a wonderful childhood. Culkin also acknowledged his manager, Emily Gerson Saines, appreciating her for keeping his name relevant even when he wasn’t in the public conversation.
Following that emotional moment, he turned his attention to his spouse Jazz Charton, 35, stating, “Thank you for sharing your life with me and for giving me two amazing kids.” He then playfully mentioned, “And Jazz… I want more. You said maybe, if I win!” Charton’s response was evident as she covered her face with her hands while the camera focused on her.
Meanwhile, Pedro Pascal responded with strong language to Kieran Culkin while presenting the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series award at the Emmys 2024.
Prior to the Emmys 2024, Kieran Culkin, known for his role in Succession, had previously directed a playful comment at the Last of Us actor Pedro Pascal, telling him to “suck it” during his acceptance speech for the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama earlier in the month.
The playful jab resurfaced when Pedro Pascal, who had lost to Kieran Culkin at the Golden Globes and was now competing against him at the Emmys, addressed the audience during the early hours of Tuesday morning at the prestigious TV awards event.
“A lot of people have been asking about my arm, it’s actually my shoulder… Kieran Culkin beat the s*** out of me,” Pedro said when seen wearing a sling on his arm.
