‘Veep’ Actor Peter MacNicol Disqualified From Emmys
The Emmy nomination of Peter MacNicol, an actor in the HBO series ‘Veep,’ for guest acting was revoked on Wednesday by the Academy of Television and Arts and Sciences. In order to qualify for the “outstanding guest actor” category, an individual must have appeared in less than half of the episodes in a single season. MacNicol appeared in exactly half of the episodes in season five of the series. “HBO’s guest actor entry for Peter MacNicol was accurate at the time of the submission deadline, but he was subsequently included in an additional Veep episode,” the academy told The Hollywood Reporter. A new nominee will be announced soon.
