The path to Mamoudou Athie's Emmy nomination is a unique one.

Nominated in the Outstanding Actor in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category at the 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards, the actor is being recognized for his work in Oh No, Jerome, which aired as a recurring segment in the first season of FXX's hybrid live-action/animated anthology series Cake. And though the project unfurled on TV in the fall of 2019, Athie's performance as the titular Jerome—an overly sensitive young man caught in a comical and, at times, bizarre quest for love in the Big Apple—began much earlier.

Emmy First - Timers Club : Mamoudou Athie Doesn ' t Plan on Keeping His Trophy If He Wins . 17 September 2020. "After losing his wife and his memory in a car accident, a single father undergoes an agonizing experimental treatment that causes him to question who he really is."

The Yale School of Drama grad was approached by filmmakers Teddy Blanks and Alex Karpovsky just as his career was getting started, asking if he'd like to be involved in what was then just a one-off short film. "I was a little confused," Athie told Deadline in August, "because I don't think I had anything out, outside of the Get Down trailer, which I'm in like two seconds of."

With no expectation of returning to the character once the weekend of shooting was finished, Athie was surprised yet again when the writer/director duo reached back out to him and shared the news that FXX wanted to not only include the short in Cake, but expand on it with an order of eight additional episodes.

"I couldn't believe it, but it was just one of those fortuitous things that happens, when you sign on to something for the love of it," Athie said. "It was a weird and fun experience, let me tell you."

Whose performances inspired you to become an actor?

Different stages in my life, but Denzel [Washington] initially, and then my classmates Gabriel Levey, Mickey Theis and my pal Kareem Lucas.

What was the last non-acting job you held?

Cater waiter. People are crazy.

What TV show other than your own have you never missed an episode of?

Cowboy Bebop, only 26 episodes. A wonderful blend of western, noir, futurism, and, all the while, gives you that fuzzy nostalgic feeling. Melancholic yet hilarious. Incredible director, Shinichiro Watanabe. I'll watch everything he's involved in.

What was the first thought that passed through your mind when you learned you were nominated?

"Wait, what? Excuse me? Yessssss."

I called my family and friends, ate well, played some games, and stayed inside! Also a prayer of thanks for a little happy in the maelstrom of true insanity these past few years have been.

Where will you put your Emmy if you win?
