Patrika Darbo Won the First Acting Emmy for a Short-Form Indie – And She Wasn’t Even Paid

12 September 2016 4:43 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Patrika Darbo wasn’t paid a dime to star in the web series “Acting Dead.” But that gamble paid off – with an Emmy win this weekend.

“Nobody got paid, we all worked deferred,” Darbo told IndieWire on Monday, a day after winning for outstanding actress in a short form comedy or drama. (Deferred payment refers to when an actor works for free until the project makes money.) “So I really got paid very well with my Emmy last night.”

The victory was sweet for Darbo, who had previously been nominated for a Daytime Emmy in 2000 (as Dr. Nancy Wesley in “Days Of Our Lives”). But it was also a big win for independent creators, as the Television Academy’s expanded short form categories opened the door toward recognizing small-time productions outside of the usual studio and network system.

Acting Dead” is a smart and zany satire written and produced by accomplished voiceover actor Brian Beacock. »
