From Monk to Marvelous: Why Tony Shalhoub Deserves His 5th Emmy

American/Lebanese actor and four-time Emmy award winner Tony Shalhoub dazzles again in season 5 of Amazon Prime Video’s exciting comedy series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”. Shalhoub is a highly respected actor who has had a successful career in both film and television. He is perhaps best known for his role as the obsessive-compulsive detective Adrian Monk in the TV series “Monk,” for which he won three Primetime Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe Award.

His portrayal of Abe Weissman in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is a standout performance that showcases his range as an actor. He brings depth and complexity to the character, which make him both relatable and compelling. Shalhoub balances Abe’s intelligence and wit with his sternness and sharpness and also imbues him with a sense of poignancy and regret that adds a layer of emotional depth to the character.


Abe initially struggles with his daughter Midge’s newfound independence and goals, but gradually comes to accept and support her choices. Shalhoub captures this transformation with great subtlety and nuance, giving viewers a real sense of the character’s inner journey.

Overall, Shalhoub’s performance in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is a testament to his talent as an actor, and it’s no surprise that it has been so well-received by critics and audiences alike. It’s certainly possible that the show could be recognized with a 5th Emmy award this year, which will be the show’s final season. 

Regardless, Shalhoub’s contributions to “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” have been invaluable, and his performance as Abe Weissman will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the show’s highlights.
