An Emmy Nomination for His Work in ‘Black Bird’ Is a Fitting Tribute to the Late Actor Ray Liotta

Ray Liotta died in May 2022, but his part in the AppleTV+ miniseries Black Bird got him an Emmy nomination after he died.

Along with Paul Walter Hauser, Richard Jenkins, Joseph Lee, Young Mazino, Jesse Plemons, and Murray Bartlett, the late actor has been nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie.

This is the second time Liotta has been nominated for an Emmy, and it could be his second win. In 2005, he got an Emmy for his role on ER. The award was for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series.

One of Liotta’s last projects was Black Bird, which came out a few months after he died. In the show, Liotta played Jimmy’s disappointed father. Jimmy, played by Taron Egerton, was a great football star who turned to crime. Jimmy has to choose between a long prison term and a risky plea deal that requires him to befriend Paul Walter Hauser, who plays a suspected serial killer.
