Sam Esmail’s Acceptance Speech at the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards
Sam Esmail accepted Mr. Robot’s award for Best Drama Series at Sunday night’s 2016 Critics' Choice Awards.
Right after thanking the “hooligans” in the writers room, Esmail explained how, growing up as a “weird Egyptian kid in New Jersey,” he became obsessed with film and television. Reading critics' reviews had allowed him to discover new and different shows and movies, and his gratitude toward the press continues to this day on account of their support for Mr. Robot and allowing people to discover USA Network's “weird little show.”
