LOS ANGELES – Actor Nick Offerman took home his first Emmy Award on Saturday night for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series. Offerman won the prestigious honor for his portrayal of Bill in the HBO series “The Last of Us”. The show dominated the first night of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, taking home a total of 8 statuettes.

When asked about a possible return to the show for the next season, Offerman remained tight-lipped.

Although Offerman’s future involvement in “The Last of Us” remains uncertain, he expressed his interest in reprising the role. He considered himself lucky to have been cast in the first place, joking that he was chosen because he could use a shovel and that Harrison Ford and Jane Lynch were not available.

“The Last of Us” received a total of 8 Emmys on the first night of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. In addition to Offerman’s win, the show was awarded for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series, Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup, Visual Effects, Main Title Design, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, and Picture Editing.
