The nominations are in
On September 18, two Denison graduates will be smoothing out their tuxes in preparation for the 63rd annual Emmy Awards show, to be held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
Christian Homlish ’03 will be there to see if the show he produces, Top Chef, takes home the grand prize in the “Outstanding Reality-Competition” category, while Steve Carell ’84 is up for “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series” for his role as Michael Scott, the quirky boss of The Office’s Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. Carell will join his former cast members (he appeared in his final episode back in April) to see if the all-star comedy group takes the golden trophy for “Outstanding Comedy Series.”
With the nominations announced last week and more than a month before the ceremony, that gives the rest of us plenty of time to stream every tense Top Chef-chop and every awkward Michael Scott moment from last season before we curl up on couches across the country, hoping to see one of our own take the stage.
