The Television Academy says that Braugher was nominated for 11 Primetime Emmy Awards and won two of them. He also got two awards from the Television Critics Association.

Even though he had a lot of successes, Variety said in 2020 that Braugher did not have a big lead part in a “commercially successful project.”

Braugher told the news source that putting his family and personal life first at different times in his work may have hurt his chances of success.

He said, “It’s been an interesting career, but I think it could have been bigger.” “I think it could have taken in more fields, like directing, producing, and all these other things.” It would have cost me my life, though.”

The star from “She Said” kept his personal life quiet. In 2014, he told The New York Times that he had been through some “stumbling blocks.”

He said, “I won’t go into specifics, but I haven’t always been at the top of my game, and that costs me.” “I won’t write a book.”

Braugher went to High School at both Stanford University and The Juilliard School. Ami Brabson, his wife of 21 years and co-star of “Homicide: Life on the Street,” was also in the show. They had three kids together: Michael, Isaiah, and John Wesley. His mother, Sally, and brother, Charles Jennings, are also still alive.
