Gold Derby can exclusively reveal that the “Ramy” episode being entered by Ramy Youssef is “Are You Naked in Front of Your Sheikh” as his 2020 Emmy Awards submission for Best Comedy Actor. This program streamed May 29 and was the 10th and final episode of the second season for the Hulu show.
In this installment, Ramy’s former lover and cousin Amani surprisingly arrives from Egypt. Through a flashback, it’s revealed that the couple had broken up in Cairo when he wouldn’t make a commitment to her. He hooks up with her, even though he is planning a sexual encounter the next day with Zainab.
Youssef has his first two career nominations this year for acting and directing. For this 2020 acting contest, he is competing against previous winners Ted Danson (“The Good Place”), Michael Douglas (“The Kominsky Method”) and Eugene Levy (“Schitt’s Creek”) and past nominees Anthony Anderson (“Black-ish”) and Don Cheadle (“Black Monday”).
