    Haha, my thoughts exactly. :p Looking at the list, though, my first thought was that Michael J Fox will take the win.

    "Best guest actor" is one category he has not yet won. This is his 17th nomination and he has won 7 times. Serious achievements. A bunch of Golden Globes, too.
    He is the only actor to have ever won Emmys for playing the same role in two series, one as Lou Grant in the comedy, Mary Tyler Moore Show, and the other in the drama, Lou Grant.
