Are you ready to make a “terrible but fun decision” this upcoming election season? No, not regarding who you will be voting for as president, but who you would like to see named Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series at this year’s Emmys? Well, Bruce Campbell has a suggestion, as seen in Emmy campaign materials put out by Starz.
In campaign videos, Campbell plays homage to his Ash Williams character, as seen in the Evil Dead movies and in the Starz series Ash vs Evil Dead, by inviting Emmy voters to “make the Emmys groovy” by giving him the nod for his role in the series.
Among the campaign slogans: “Vote for Bruce Campbell, He Doesn’t Suck”; “Vote for Bruce Campbell, I Have a Chainsaw Hand”; and “Vote for Bruce Campbell, Because I Fucking Said So!”
If you live in or are visiting Hollywood, you’ll also see various Ash4Emmy billboards, and Starz says mailers with campaign materials will be sent to guilds and awards press. We’ll see if they sway Emmy voters. If it were up to fans, Ash/Bruce Campbell may very well sweep most of the awards, and perhaps even the vote for the U.S. presidency as well.
