Winkler loses an Emmy nod

Jul 24, 2000 by Ian Evans

Henry Winkler was riding high last week when it was announced that he had received not one, but two Guest Actor nominations in the Comedy and Drama categories.

His Drama nod was for an appearance on The Practice. The Comedy nod was for his appearance on the now cancelled Battery Park.

NBC cancelled Battery Park and finally aired the remaining episodes after the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ nomination cutoff date of May 31st. It’s a bit of a technicality as the show was supposed to air in April and that’s when the producers submitted the show for Emmy consideration.

Winkler’s loss is William H. Macy’s gain. He now gets the nomination for his performance on Sports Night.
