The late actor's nephew and mentee, Dominic Dupont, appeared in the Williams-produced 2017 Vice documentary Raised by the System. The documentary centered on Dupont — who served more than 20 years in prison for murder before his sentence was commuted by then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo in 2017 — and called for reforms to address America’s system of mass incarceration. Williams, who's up for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, earned an Emmy nomination for producing Raised in the System.
