And as media outlets published reaction statements by nominated actors, HuffPost senior entertainment reporter Matthew Jacobs found Grant’s gem of a response so funny, he tweeted it.
Readers should be forewarned before scrolling any further that Grant’s response is also a major spoiler for the series.
“Incredibly kind of my fellow actors to nominate me,” the charming Brit said in a statement. “What a lovely week. I must kill more often. Extremely pleased for Nicole [Kidman]. Richly deserved.”
“The Undoing” offers a modern take on a “whodunnit” plotline. Grant plays Jonathan Fraser, who is revealed to be the murderer at the end of the story.
And hey, we can’t blame Grant for developing such a keen sense of humor. We suppose that’s what happens when you’re bestowed with a middle name like “Mungo.”
