Gold Derby can exclusively reveal that Rachel Brosnahan is entering “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” episode “How Do You Get to Carnegie Hall?” as her 2022 Emmy Award submission for Best Comedy Actress. The episode aired on March 11 and is the eighth episode and fourth season finale of the Amazon Prime Video comedy.
In this installment, Midge (Brosnahan) and Lenny Bruce (Luke Kirby) finally have sex. Later, after Midge turns down an opening act gig for Tony Bennett, Lenny chastises her for routinely committing career sabotage out of fear instead of putting herself out there. Midge then spots a billboard for “The Gordon Ford Show” with the tagline “Go Forward.”
