Congratulations to former Chicago PD star Brian Geraghty, whose current series The Alienist scored six Emmy Award nominations on Thursday.

While the One Chicago franchise was overlooked for the Emmys on Thursday, one member of the Chicago PD family is enjoying some Emmy Awards recognition.

The TNT period drama The Alienist, which stars Brian Geraghty as Theodore Roosevelt alongside Daniel Bruhl, Luke Evans, and Dakota Fanning, received not one but six Emmy nominations.

Though Geraghty wasn’t Emmy-nominated himself, the show was nominated in the category of Outstanding Limited Series.

It also received five nods for various behind the scenes accomplishments, including Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Period or Fantasy Program (One Hour or More), Outstanding Cinematography for a Limited Series or Movie, Outstanding Period Costumes, Outstanding Main Title Design and Outstanding Special Visual Effects in a Supporting Role.

The series premiered in January and was Brian Geraghty’s first TV starring role since leaving Chicago PD.

Introduced as Kim Burgess’s (Marina Squerciati) second patrol partner and eventual love interest, he was a regular through the fourth season. But the actor chose to leave after that, wanting to pursue other projects.

Roman was said to have moved from Chicago to San Diego, after a failed attempt to convince Burgess to leave with him.

The Outstanding Limited Series nomination means that if The Alienist wins when Emmy Awards are handed out in September, Geraghty would be included in that victory. Though the focus of the show is on the characters portrayed by Daniel Bruhl, Luke Evans and Dakota Fanning, Geraghty is still billed as a main cast member.

Brian Geraghty’s work being nominated, even if it’s not an individual nomination but recognition for the project he’s in, might be a source of solace for One Chicago fans. After another year where the franchise hasn’t picked up a single Emmy nod, at least someone who’s been part of the family is getting a chance at awards gold.

Watch a scene from The Alienist season 1 including Brian Geraghty above, and tell us what you think. Does this series have a shot at the Emmys? And with it being billed as a limited series, we’ll have to see what Geraghty does next.
