The dystopian drama Squid Game has always been the center of attraction, becoming the top show in Netflix’s history because the unique storyline of this deadly game to win cash prizes intrigued fans. And the show got 14 nominations in July, and Lee Jung-Jae was selected for the category of Outstanding Lead Actor.
The results of the 74th Emmy Awards have finally come out, with Squid Game taking six awards home. This is a new success bar that the show has set in the history of Netflix shows. However, fans are annoyed by one particular honor given to Lee Jung-Jae as they feel that he robbed Bob Oderink of his Emmy. Let’s see what fans have to say about this decision!
Lee Jung-Jae of Squid Game become the first Korean actor to win Emmy for the best male lead
Lee Jung-Jae played the lead role of Seong Gi-hun in the hit Netflix show Squid Game, which premiered in September 2021. This was the first non-English pop culture show that set fire on screen with its fantastic script and amazing visuals. Unsurprisingly, it was clear that the series would be receiving the best direction award as it did.
Moreover, Lee receiving the award for the best lead role was shocking news for many people. He beat many famous faces, including Bob Odenkirk, Jason Bateman, Jeremy Strong, Adam Scott, and Brian Cox.
Although fans focused more on Odenkirk, who portrayed Saul Goodman in Better Call Saul, fans complained that Bob had been robbed of his Emmy as he was a better contender for this award. Meanwhile, the more significant reason for this reaction can be that Bob Odenkirk has been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor five times in the past but never won it.
Netizens are not happy that Bob Odenkirk did not win at Emmy Awards
Fans are reacting after Bob Odenkirk faced defeat at the 74th Emmy Awards 2022. They are taking his side, saying that he was a better choice.
Jeremy Strong and Bob Oderink robbed. Shameful

Bob Odenkirk doesn’t need the award because it’s too SMALL!!. It’s a tiny little trophy given out by out of touch losers who can’t appreciate a good show that does everything right for 6 seasons straight! Vince and Peter captured LIGHTNING IN A CAMERA. pic.twitter.com/NP0OtAPfdR

Such a great show, honestly. I loved it. But the performance wasn’t better than Jeremy Strong’s, Adam Scott’s, Bob Odenkirk’s, Jason Bateman, or Brian Cox’s…in my opinion idk. Congrats tho
