Andrew Garfield has earned another accolade for his endless talents as the 2022 Emmy Nominations have officially been announced. Playing the role of Detective Jeb Pyre in Under the Banner of Heaven, Garfield is a contender in the category of Lead Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie. That’s right, Garfield is officially an Emmy nominee.

Fans are thrilled with the announcement, and while it is incredible, it’s certainly not surprising. Garfield is an immensely dedicated and gifted actor — and his performance in Under the Banner of Heaven was otherworldly.

The limited series was based upon the nonfiction novel, Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith by Jon Krakauer. Detective Pyre was tasked with investigating a murder within the Mormon community, and he found himself questioning his faith — the basis of which he’d built absolutely everything.

From compassion and disdain to a deep-seated fear, Garfield showcased a multifaceted character through several phases of a turn of faith, and it was an emotional watch. The Emmy nomination was something fans saw coming after that performance, but it’s still worth celebrating.

Fans are already taking to social media with Garfield’s new title.
