The Dresser’s nomination is a tribute to the HFPA’s support for this important and beloved form. This nomination is a testament to Ronald Harwood’s brilliant writing, Richard Eyre’s glorious direction and a masterclass in acting by Anthony Hopkins and Ian McKellen, along with all the support we received from Starz and the BBC.”

Mark S. Greenberg, President of EPIX on Graves star Nick Nolte’s nomination for Best Performance By an Actor in a Television Series, Musical, or Comedy: “We are incredibly honored for the support and recognition of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association of Nick Nolte’s masterful portrayal of a former President who endeavors to make good on a less than auspicious political career in one of our first original series. Graves’ was undeniably prescient in its reflection of issues that surfaced on the debate floors of this year’s election, many of which were once thought too outrageous in the writers’ room only to see them come to life during the Presidential campaign.”
