Sussex’s sit-down with Oprah Winfrey who got chosen for an Emmy and, as is the method when it comes to the Harry and Meghan, responses to the news have been diverse. The couple’s interview with Oprah, formally known as Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special, will most undoubtedly go downcast in royal history.
Now, the interview has been named as one of the five nominations for Outstanding Hosted Nonfiction Series Or Special Category in the American Emmy Awards. As at all times, royal fans reacted to the news through Twitter. And, let’s fair to say, not all will be congratulating should the trio take home the win.
“Is this a joke?” one user asked. “Should be awarded for best-scripted drama show,” another quipped. “For ‘Liar! Liar Pants on Fire!’ outstanding fiction category?” a third penned. But not everyone was dismayed by the nomination, with many offering the rogue royals their congratulations.
“As it should!” wrote one Sussex fan. “Well, that will p*ss off a few brits. I am happy for them. It was a good interview,” another added. “Well deserved, congrats Oprah and the Sussex’s!” a third fan celebrated.
As we know that Princess Diana’s Panorama interview with the BBC is well-known in history, the import of Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah may have surpassed that of Diana’s.
From Meghan claiming that Kate Middleton made her cry, to Harry attesting that his brother and father were unknowingly trapped within the institution, to Meghan alleging that there had been concerns over the color of her first son Archie’s skin, the 90-minute event certainly grabbed the attention of people all over the globe.
And now, who knows, it may just grab an Emmy.
