On July 12, we finally met all the nominees for the 2022 Emmy Awards. Among such giant names in the world of television such as ‘Stranger Things’, ‘Euphoria’, ‘Better Call Saul’, ‘The game of the squid’ or ‘Succession’, a newcomer to the scene like ‘Only murders in the building’ has burst in with force after the announcement of its third season. With 17 Emmy nominations to its credit, the series produced by Hulu and available on Disney+, has a Spanish illustrator nominated in the category Best credits design: Laura Pérez.
‘Only Murders in the Building’ has been nominated for Best Comedy Series, Best Directing for a Comedy Series (up to two episodes) and Best Writing for a Comedy Series, in addition to Steve Martin and Martin Short as Best Leading Actors and Nathan Lane and Jane Lynch for Best Guest Actor and Actress. However, within our borders, the best news is that of Pérez’s nomination, who, beyond creating the final credits, plays a key role in fiction since Selena Gómez plays an illustrator whose drawings are the work of the Perez herself. “I never imagined working for the film industry and it has been wonderful. Working with Disney, in addition, is another dimension“declared the Valencian in conversations with culture plaza last year.
The illustrator, who has worked for renowned titles such as National Geographic, The Wall Street Journal or Vanity Fair, explained what the change to work in audiovisuals was like. She did it with the help of the American studio Elastic, in charge of the credits of ‘Game of Thrones’ or ‘The Politician’. “Going from working on comics or illustrated albums to audiovisual work with Disney or 20th Century Fox has been a very enriching experience“Perez explained.

The illustrator was in charge of echoing the news through her social networks, where she also mentioned Elastica, Lisa Bolan, creative director of the team, and the Hulu series itself. The gala will be held on September 12, although the technical prizes will be awarded between the 3rd and 4th of that same monththe so-called Creative Arts Emmys.
From the leading trio of ‘Only murders in the building’, Selena Gomez is the only one who has been left without her nomination as leading actress. Although she has been nominated in the field of production, her co-star Steve Martin has explained to Variety how disappointed you are. “We are very happy to have received so many nominations, but we are somewhat dismayed that Selena has not been nominated because it is very important for the trio and for the series. In fact, in a way you can say that we were nominated for their balance within the series. But we’re very happy that she’s nominated to executive produce the show. She’s a great asset to us.”.
