Alexis Denisof Could Become The First ‘Buffy’ Alum To Win An Acting Emmy

July 24, 2018

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” was a cultural phenomenon with a lasting impact that few TV series achieve. It launched several acting careers, the spin-off series “Angel,” and it cemented creator Joss Whedon as king of all geek-dom, which eventually led to his big-screen success as the director of “The Avengers” (2012) and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (2015). Despite its success and acclaim, however, the series was never an Emmy darling. And the curse has continued to follow the “Buffy”-verse actors as no “Buffy” or “Angel” performer has ever earned a Primetime Emmy for acting in their careers. That could all change this year thanks to Alexis Denisof.

Denisof portrayed Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, an uptight Watcher introduced in Season 3 of “Buffy.” He later reprised the character as a member of the main cast of “Angel.” He was never nominated for that role, but this year Denisof is finally up for an acting Emmy, thanks to a relatively new category: Best Short Form Actor. He competes for the comedic web series “I LOVE BEKKA & LUCY,” in which he plays Glenn, a flirtatious neighbor of the title characters who threatens their domestic bliss.
