Will the third time be the charm for ‘Homecoming’ star Julia Roberts at the Emmys?

Despite two nominations, Julia Roberts has yet to take home a Primetime Emmy Award. But she could finally snag her maiden statuette this year in Best Drama Actress for her turn on Amazon’s “Homecoming.”

Based on the Gimlet Media podcast of the same name, written by Micah Bloomberg and Eli Horowitz, and directed by Sam Esmail (“Mr. Robot”), the first season, consisting of 10 half-hour episodes, follows Heidi Bergman (Roberts), who’s a counselor at Homecoming facility, a place that aids war veterans adjust back to civilian life. Her job mainly consists of conducting interviews with soldiers upon return from combat.

Several years later, we find Heidi working as a waitress at a seafood restaurant with an entirely new life.
