Fans of the National Geographic “Genius” series, produced by Academy Award winners Ron Howard and Brian Grazer about the life of Albert Einstein, know that we kind of geeked out about the show. To the point where we stayed up late at night to pen weekly episode recaps. Einstein’s life made for must-see TV, and it’s now getting the recognition it deserves.
The series, which wrapped up its 10-episode run in June, was just nominated for ten Emmy Awards. Australian actor Geoffrey Rush, who portrayed Einstein in his later years, was nominated for lead actor in a limited series or movie.
