Emmy’s Guest Star Category Can Reap Multiple Noms for Actors and Shows

Emmy’s Guest Star Category Can Reap Multiple Noms for Actors and Shows
The Emmys’ guest actor and actress category names may have evolved over the years, but ever since the Academy first honored seasoned actor and director Patrick McGoohan for a stint on NBC’s “Columbo” they have had a reputation for celebrating well-known talent.

Some of this is also due to repetition. NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” has been a mainstay in the guest acting comedy categories the past decade. Since 2009, the late-night sketch show has won half the trophies awarded in those categories — nine of 18 — with victors ranging from Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon to Tina Fey and Betty White. Last year, hosts Dave Chappelle and Melissa McCarthy won their respective categories, and a total of five of the 12 nominees were from the show.

Since “SNL” guest hosts use the show’s platform to promote their own work, it’s inevitable that they might also be eligible for other Emmy categories.

My Favorite Scene: ‘The Collection’ Creator Oliver Goldstick on the ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Moment That Still Haunts Him

My Favorite Scene: ‘The Collection’ Creator Oliver Goldstick on the ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Moment That Still Haunts Him
No one loves a great scene more than the person who first dreamed it up -- the writer. We're asking iconic shows' creators and writers to tell Et all about getting to see their most cherished moment on their series make it from script to screen.

For Oliver Goldstick, creator of Amazon’s new period drama, The Collection, it’s his work on an earlier show, Pretty Little Liars, which still haunts him to this day. The scene, from season two, plays on the fears that many of us have while serving as a template for the emotional and suspenseful moments to come in the five seasons to follow. While the story of five girls terrorized by a mysterious villain named “A” is very different from The Collection, which focuses on one Parisian family’s attempt to restore the city’s supremacy as the haute couture capital of the world, the two shows
