Meghan and Harry nominated for Emmys? This is no joke, as Deadline revealed on July 13. If the prince and his companion find themselves alongside Emily in Paris or the cast of The Crown , it is “thanks” to their shock interview with Oprah Winfrey , broadcast last March. Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS PrimeTime Special is indeed nominated in the Outstanding Hosted Nonfiction Series or Special category.
More than 17 million people sat in front of their television sets to attend this unprecedented interview, during which the couple had made many revelations. Meghan Markle had thus addressed the subject of mental health, tabloids or racism within the royal family. Prince Harry’s wife also revealed that she had considered suicide. Heartbreaking statements, which had made the headlines on both sides of the Channel, some going so far as to compare this interview with that given by Diana 25 years earlier to the BBC.
The 73rd Emmy Awards will take place on September 19.
