Capote vs. Swans,’ White Lotus

Tom Hollander, the guest on this episode of The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, is a brilliant British character actor who has distinguished himself on the stage and screens big and small, with the New York Times describing him as “vitally funny in dramatic roles [and] wrenchingly somber in comic ones.” Indeed, over the course of a career dating back 42 years, he has been a part of two SAG Award-winning casts, one for a film, 2001’s Gosford Park, and another for a TV series, 2023’s The White Lotus season two. He won a best supporting actor BAFTA TV Award for 2016’s The Night Manager. And he was nominated for a best actor in a play Tony Award for 2018’s Travesties.

Now, he is poised to land his first Primetime Emmy Award nomination, in the category of best actor in a limited or anthology series or TV movie, for arguably the meatiest part he has ever been asked to play on screen, and the one for which he has received the most widespread acclaim: that of Truman Capote on the FX limited series Feud: Capote vs. the Swans.
