Strathmore is known for many things, but "Emmy award winning town" usually isn't one of them. However, that may change with a new nomination!

Andrew Garfield has been nominated for an Emmy for his role in the seven-episode limited FX series "Under the Banner of Heaven" that was filmed in southern Alberta in 2021.

TV crews came down to Strathmore last year for a day to film at the former Leroy's Motor Inn. The show was filmed all across southern Alberta, with scenes also being shot in Calgary, Didsbury and Carstairs.

It won't be easy for Garfield to take the award though; he has some serious competition.
