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.
