Andrew Garfield Receives First Emmy Nomination for FX’s ‘Under the Banner of Heaven’


The nominees for the 74th annual Emmy Awards were announced today, recognizing achievements in television from June 1, 2021 through May 31, 2022.

Andrew Garfield has received his first Emmy nomination under the Lead Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series category for his work as Jeb Pyre on FX’s Under the Banner of Heaven.

Based on the non-fiction book of the same name, Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer, this series tells the true story of how a devout detective’s (Garfield) faith is tested as he investigates a shocking double homicide that seems to be connected to an esteemed Utah family, who have begun to spiral into LDS fundamentalism due to their distrust in the government. Each episode is a bounty of heart-wrenching storytelling and content that will leave you reflective about the effects of radical religion and toxic masculinity found in indoctrinated systems.
