Congratulations go to Stargate Universe star Robert Carlyle who won the 2010 Gemini Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role for the first season episode “Human”.
The episode, written by freelancer Jeff Vlaming and directed by Robert C. Cooper, centered on Carlyle’s character Dr. Nicholas Rush as he navigated his way through painful memories of his wife’s illness and death while interfacing with the Destiny. It was an emotional roller-coaster for Rush, and Carlyle’s performance was well deserving of this recognition.
The newest edition to the Stargate franchise was nominated for nine Gemini Awards this year, but Carlyle’s is the only one taken home this time around.
Carlyle and the rest of the SGU cast and crew are currently filming the Season Two finale, “Gauntlet”, and will be wrapping principal photography very soon. Word from Syfy concerning renewal could come as late as January 2011. Until then, new episodes are being aired first on Syfy on Tuesdays at 9 PM ET.
