Peter MacNicol Just Lost His 'Veep' Emmy Nomination

Forsaken by Vigo, Ghostbusters II and Ally McBeal's Peter MacNicol just lost his recent Emmy nomination. Though the veteran actor was just given a nod in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series category for his role as Jeff Kane in Veep, apparently he doesn't actually qualify as a "guest." For that, the Television Academy requires one appear in less than half a season's episodes. MacNicol just missed that by appearing in five of the season's ten episodes--a disappointingly close call that seems about right given the recent events in Veep.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Academy will very soon announce a replacement nominee who doesn't have a fucking chance.
