“The Normal Heart” is based on writer Larry Kramer‘s semi-autobiographical stage play about the early years of the AIDS epidemic in New York City. It was first produced in 1985 and had its first ever Broadway staging in 2011, for which it won the Tony for Best Play Revival.
Kramer also wrote the screenplay for the TV film adaptation, which earned Ruffalo a pair of Emmy nominations: Best Movie/Mini Actor for his starring role as crusading AIDS activist Ned Weeks, and Best TV Movie, which he shares with a producing team that also includes director Ryan Murphy and recent Oscar-winners Brad Pitt and Dede Gardner.
Will Ruffalo’s first ever Emmy nominations lead to a pair of wins? Make your predictions below, and come back tomorrow for our live chat.
