Bruce Campbell is hilarious and has started an entertaining campaign to get an Emmy Award Nomination for his work as Ash in Starz’s Ash vs Evil Dead Season 1. It is being called the make “Emmy’s groovy again” campaign with billboards around intersections, online social media, and digital advertising pushes meaning one thing, Campbell and Starz are 100% serious about getting that Emmy.
Starz EVP of Communications Theano Apostolou said in a statement to Deadline:
If there’s one thing that the 2016 campaign season has taught us, it’s that voters respond to a bold pitch. You can’t really go wrong by getting out of the way and letting Bruce Campbell do what he does best… which is pitch Bruce Campbell. We think his chainsaw hand will help cut through all the noise.
