Robin on his nomination: "I had this crazy and beautiful realization of the amount of people who are unseen- the amount of people who live a life and don't get accolades or recognition. We just happen to be a part of this crazy career where that is a part of our construct. Watching my family and friends be so genuinely loving and supportive and excited made me go, 'Oh, that's right! This is representing a village!'"
