Below is Jeremy Irons’ reaction to being nominated for a Golden Globe for his work in The Borgias. Congratulations to Jeremy from all your fans at Jeremy Irons Online!
Veteran thespian and two-time Globe winner Jeremy Irons picked up his sixth career nomination for “The Borgias,” which Showtime renewed for a second season earlier this year.
“I am delighted to be nominated for my work in Neil Jordan’s ‘The Borgias.’ In truth I know it reflects the tireless efforts and exceptional talents of all those who bring this splendid series to the screen,” he said of his nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a drama series. “Without the magnificent work in the costume and set design, script writing, lighting and camera work, and the constant care in the direction, production, and marketing, this series would not have grabbed its audience as it appears to have done. That I am surrounded by a talented and dedicated cast is self-evident. But, of course, if you want to nominate anyone, and escape with your life, then you’d better first nominate the Pope.”
