Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.

Jane decides to change her life getting her fears out of her head, and is encouraged by Michael to join the training of E.M.T. in the Grafton Volunteer Fire Department. Nobody believes in the clumsy Jane, but she concludes the training period and applies to the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians and gets her certificate. She begins to work to Grafton Volunteer Fire Department, affecting her personal life and the long relationship with Michael. Written by

I worked as an EMT and I now work in a related field supplying EMS agencies with specialized medical products for use mainly with babies. I have a lot of contact with small town EMS personnel and I feel they captured her role and lifestyle quite well. There were some "Hollywood moments" but overall this was very entertaining and believable. Small town volunteers need more recognition for the sacrifices and dedication involved with supporting a community! I would love to see more shows like this because the large agencies (NYFD, LAFD, etc) get a lot of media attention and as important and heroic as these people are, there are many, many more small community heroes and heroines who deserve the same recognition.
