Andrew Garfield, who most will know from his portrayal as the Amazing Spider-Man, has been nominated for an Emmy.

It's his first Emmy nomination and it was for his acting in the seven-episode limited FX series 'Under the Banner of Heaven' that was filmed in southern Alberta in 2021.

While we might be used to television and movie crews working around the Foothills this limited series was shot in Calgary, Strathmore, Didsbury and Carstairs.

Garfield is up against some tough competition as you can see:

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie

  • Andrew Garfield 'Under the Banner of Heaven'
  • Colin Firth 'The Staircase'
  • Oscar Isaac 'Scenes from a Marriage'
  • Michael Keaton 'Dopesick'
  • Himesh Patel 'Station Eleven'
  • Sebastian Stan 'Pam & Tommy'

The series is based on the best-selling novel by Jon Krakauer based on a true story set in Utah and Alberta involving a two brutal murders.

It was originally broadcast on Hulu but is also available on Disney+.

We will have to wait until September 12th to find out if he wins.  

The Emmys will be broadcast on NBC at 6:00 p.m. MT.
