We’re continuing our countdown with the 13th Day of Christmas, and the news that Rami Malek and Christian Slater received Golden Globe nominations. So, Mr Robot Hacks thought it high time we relive one of the best moments of Rami Malek’s life. It seems an age since he scooped his Emmy Award for Best Actor, so we thought we’d relive the moment our unfriendly neighborhood anti-social hacker hero won the Emmy and made THAT speech!
Please tell me you’re seeing this too!
He’s so shocked and is obviously a genuinely great guy… even honoring the award to the Elliots of the world!
It’s enough to bring tears to your eyes, isn’t it?
Wait til you watch his backstage speech!
Rami was the first ever Arab-American Best Actor winner and it’s vitally important, especially in this day and age, that what Rami calls “not the typical” leading men are being honored. Props to The Emmy Academy for being progressive.
If you’re wondering why our main picture features 007, Rami’s not wearing a white tuxedo to pay homage to Roger Moore’s James Bond, but because George McFly wore one in Back to the Future which plays a huge part in Mr Robot.
Let’s hope Rami goes Back to the Future again in 2017 with a Golden Globe win and another Emmy to add to the collection.
We’re all rooting for you because there’s a little bit of Elliot (and George McFly) in all of us!
