ENTERTAINMENT | Three Minute As Dr. Fauci? Give Brad Pitt The Emmy.

Fresh off the glory of his pre-pandemic Oscar win – which now feels like a lifetime ago – Brad Pitt is an Emmy nominee. In an instance of doing the most with the least amount of screen time. Pitt is nominated for guest actor in a comedy series for the three minutes he played Dr. Anthony Fauci in April cold-open of Saturday Night Live at Home, nailing Fauci’s Brooklyn accent and debonair gray hair (with the help of a wing). It took one national treasure and heartthrob to  play another, as Pitt joked: ‘I’d like to thank all the older women in America who have sent me inspiring – and sometimes graphic – emails’.

Pitt faces some formidable competition in the category, including Eddie Murphy for hosting SNL, a posthumous nomination for Fred Willard for his appearance on Modern Family, and Luke Kirby, who plays Lenny Bruce on the year’s most-nominated comedy, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. But even before what many consider to be a surprise nod (Pitt previously won an Emmy for producing 2014’s The Normal Heart), Pitt’s SNL performance won the approval of Fauci himself.

‘I’m a great fan of Brad Pitt and that’s the reason why when people ask me who I would like to play me, I mention Brad Pitt’, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease told Telemundo. ‘I think he did a great job’. Most of all, Fauci praised Pitt for removing his wig at the end of the skit to thank the real Fauci and frontline doctors and nurses: ‘Not only is he a really great actor, but he is actually a classy person’.
