Fox is nominated as Comedy Guest Actor for his turn as a frustrated neighbor of the visiting Larry David. Our odds currently have him just ahead of Jimmy Fallon for his guest hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live.” If Fox fails to win, he will be in good company.
Six of the Emmy also-rans guested on “The Larry Sanders Show”: Carol Burnett (1993), Dana Carvey (1993), Rosie O’Donnell (1996), Mandy Patinkin (1996), Ellen DeGeneres (1997), and David Duchovny (1997).
The first two celebs to contend in these categories were Stevie Wonder (“The Cosby Show,” 1986) and, in her final TV appearance, Gilda Radner (“It’s Garry Shandling’s Show,” 1988).
