6 Must-Watch Rami Malek Moments from Season One of Mr. Robot
Warning: Contains spoilers from season_1.0
You can now add the Emmys to the list of awards Mr. Robot has been racking up since its critically acclaimed first season ended last fall. Mr. Robot earned a total of 6 Emmy nominations for its inaugural season, headlined by nods for “Outstanding Drama Series” and “Lead Actor in a Drama Series.” Rami Malek earned the nomination for the latter and we all agree, his portrayal of vigilante hacker Elliot Alderson is one of the most gripping on television today.
Here are 6 scenes that prove Rami Malek’s Emmy nomination for Lead Actor In A Drama Series is well-deserved:
S1 Ep 3 - Choices:
In “eps1.2_d3bug.mkv,” Elliot explains to his therapist Krista how we’re duped into having a false sense of making choices.
S1 Ep 4 - Withdrawal:
In this clip from “eps1.3_da3m0ns.mp4,” Elliot’s calm voiceover narrates his torturous detox from morphine.
S1 Ep 6 - Shayla's Fate:
During the final moments of “eps1.5_br4ve-trave1er.asf,” the realization of what has happened to Shayla washes over Elliot in a long take.
S1 Ep 8 - Elliot and Darlene:
Elliot’s delusions come to a head in this memorable scene from “eps1.7_wh1ter0se.m4v.” Looks like Elliot is as freaked out by this revelation as the audience is.
S1 Ep 9 - Elliot Is Ready To Let Go:
The ultimate confrontation between Elliot and Mr. Robot comes in “eps1.8_m1rr0r1ng.qt” when Elliot finally stops listening to his father’s B.S.
S1 Ep 10 - Is Any Of This Real?:
In the season_1.0 finale, “eps1.9_zer0-day.avi,” Elliot breaks the fourth wall as his conscience is breaking apart. But can he ever stop the voice of Mr. Robot?
