Brian Cox’s Succession wins big again – Angus Robertson
TV comedy drama Succession, starring Brian Cox, is worth putting on your watch-list, writes Angus Robertson.
Congratulations to Scotland’s very own Brian Cox after the show in which he stars, Succession, won four awards at the Emmys.
Best Lead Actor Jeremy Strong shared his Emmy with co-star Cox during his acceptance speech to the 72nd annual Emmy Awards which were held remotely because of coronavirus restrictions.
Cox plays media mogul Logan Roy in the satirical comedy-drama which has already had two series, with a third on the way.

The Dundee-born actor has already won a Golden Globe for best actor in a television series drama.
The TV series – which includes a storyline where his son buys him Hearts FC, earning him a rebuke because his character is a Hibs fan – revolves about the dysfunctional Roy family which runs a global media and hospitality empire and the ongoing fight for control during uncertainty about the health of the family patriarch played by Brian Cox. Without the need for a spoiler alert, Roy’s four children each begin to plan for the future without their father’s dominating presence.
If you haven’t yet seen Succession put it on your watch-list. In the meantime, best wishes to Brian Cox who continues to excel on both sides of the Atlantic and keeps a strong interest in Scotland, including his recent appeal for support to help protect Edinburgh’s Kings Theatre.
