16 Jul 2015
APB speaker Jeffrey Tambor has been nominated for an Emmy Award in the category Lead Actor in a Comedy. Last year, he took home his first-ever Golden Globe win for his groundbreaking portrayal of “Maura Pfefferman” in Amazon Prime’s new hit series, Transparent. This year, he has already won a Critics Choice Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.
Tambor has given moving and inspiring speeches this past year, describing the Transparent role as “life-changing,” dedicating the accomplishments to the transgender community. His portrayal of a transgender father has inspired countless others, such as Caitlyn Jenner — who gave a trailblazing acceptance speech for the 2015 Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYS — speak out about transitioning.
A gifted speaker, Tambor is sought after for his willingness to share personal stories with candor and humor. His inspiring “perform your life” presentations bring audiences through an eye-opening, emotional, hilarious journey of how to love life and reach one’s fullest potential. Determined to help listeners reconnect with their hopes and dreams, Tambor empowers us all to become catalysts for change.
