‘1923’ Star Says ‘Yellowstone’ Shows Deserve Emmy Nominations and Wins

  • Sebastian Roché has weighed in on “Yellowstone” and its spinoffs being ignored by the Emmy Awards.
  • The “1923″ actor told Insider that the shows are “great works of art” and deserve recognition. 
  • “The fact that Kelly Reilly hasn’t been nominated for an Emmy is just staggering to me,” he said.

Since it launched in 2018, Paramount Network’s “Yellowstone” has grown to become one of the most-watched dramas on cable television with a devoted fan base and several successful spinoffs.

However, one thing the flagship series co-created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson does not have is recognition from the Emmy Awards, having been shut out of the awards during its first three seasons. 

Season four earned a single nomination in 2021 for production design, but lost out to “Mare of Easttown.” Meanwhile, last year’s spinoff, “1883,” which starred Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, garnered three nominations, two for cinematography and one for music, but likewise did not win.

Speaking to Insider, Sebastian Roché, who stars as Father Renaud in the franchise’s most recent spinoff, “1923,” said he thinks the shows in the “Yellowstone” universe have “been deserving of all the awards for the past few years” and is hopeful something changes soon.

“I’ve been watching ‘Yellowstone’ since its inception, and ‘1883’ too, and these are great works of art,” he said. “They should have been recompensed, that’s my opinion.”

Roché went on to single out British actor Kelly Reilly’s performance as the ferocious but flawed Beth Dutton as one that he thinks really should receive a nod from the awards body.

“The fact that Kelly Reilly hasn’t been nominated for an Emmy is just staggering to me,” he said.

The actor added that he is hopeful that when nominations are announced this year, both “Yellowstone” and “1923,” which is led by Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren, will get a few nominations. 

“It’s something we haven’t seen for so long on television or screen, a sort of epic drama with deep family connections and a deep understanding of history,” the actor said of the series, which it has been announced will be returning for a second season.

“While I was reading it, I was thinking of Hemingway,” Roché. “I do believe ‘1923’ should be in the conversation. I mean, when I see the work that the crew does in terms of directing, photography, and acting.”

“I’m blown away by the work that my colleagues are doing on this show and I think it should be recompensed.”

Roché went on to praise Sheridan who, as actors have previously revealed, is very involved in the casting process for all his shows.

“The thing about Taylor Sheridan is he’s a masterful casting director, not only a brilliant writer. He knows who to cast and it’s as if he writes, and has a very specific idea of who he wants and he always finds the right person,” the actor said.

“This is a work that I’m extremely proud of and I think that the academy should recognize it for what it is. It’s a great work of art.”
