The performance of Ebon Moss-Bachrach as divorced father Richie in the TV series “The Bear” has so far collected the two top entertainment awards of the year.

On Monday, Moss-Bachrach, who is 46 and Jewish, received an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a comedy-drama series, repeating his victory at the Golden Globes on Jan. 7. On the program streamed by Disney+, Moss-Bachrach portrays a chef who takes over his brother’s Chicago sandwich restaurant. The show tied with HBO’s Fox News-inspired “Succession” drama, each winning six awards.

Two other shows with dominant Jewish themes also received nominations but did not win.

“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” received two nominations and “Fleishman Is in Trouble” earned five. Former “Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe also competed in Best Lead Actor in a limited series for his performance in “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” as the iconic, Grammy-winning parody musician, losing to Steven Yeun in Netflix’s “Beef.”

On the red carpet outside the program, “The Crown” actor Khalid Abdalla flashed a “Never Again” written on his palm and called for a ceasefire in Gaza, later stating on social media: “Mourn the dead and fight like hell for the living … Because all lives are sacred.”
