Gold Derby can exclusively reveal that Milo Ventimiglia is entering the “This Is Us” episode “The Car” as his Emmy submission for Best Drama Actor. This installment aired February 6 and was the 15th episode of the second season for the NBC show.
In this segment, Jack Pearson (Ventimiglia) is seen purchasing the family’s Jeep when the kids are 10 years old. It was a more expensive car than they could afford, and the episode follows their journeys all the way up to Jack’s memorial service many years later. Enjoy our recent video chat with Ventimiglia discussing this season and his career.
Ventimiglia has a second straight nomination in the lead category. His co-star Sterling K. Brown won last year and competes against him again. The other contenders are past champ Jeffrey Wright (“Westworld”) and previous nominees Jason Bateman (“Ozark”), Ed Harris (“Westworld”) and Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”).
