Two Skarsgard brothers scored big wins this week by playing very bad boys. Alexander Skarsgard won his first Emmy Award for playing abusive husband Perry Wright in HBO's "Big Little Lies," and his younger brother Bill Skarsgard topped the box office again as Pennywise the clown in "IT."
Alex won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or a Television Movie, defeating these five fine fellows:
- David Thewlis, "Fargo"
- Alfred Molina, "Feud"
- Stanley Tucci, "Feud"
- Bill Camp, "The Night Of"
- Michael K. Williams, "The Night Of"
Alexander, the eldest son of actor Stellan Skarsgard and My Sonja Marie Agnes, thanked his mother for flying out from Stockholm, Sweden to join him at the Emmys -- and for giving birth to him, since that was pretty cool, too. He also thanked the amazing women of "Big Little Lies" for making him feel like one of the girls. Nicole Kidman, who played his on-screen wife, looked thrilled for him in the audience.
Meanwhile, Bill's first "IT" movie is breaking box office records, with "Chapter Two" already in the works. FYI, there are actually eight Skarsgard siblings, including two half-brothers from Stellan's second marriage. The photo above shows Alex on the far right, with Bill in the middle, and their very talented actor brother Gustav on the left.
Here's the full list of winners at the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
