Here’s what a sly puss that Emmy nominee Ricky Gervais is. He just sent Gold Derby a Tweet urging us to watch a YouTube video featuring one of his two notoriously frisky cats (Kodi – the other one is Shorty, who stars in many other videos) actively tubthumping for Ricky’s Emmy bid to be Best Comedy Actor of 2014.
Titled “ShoKo’s Emmy Campaign,” the video depicts Kodi snatching a “#VoteDerek” flyer from the front door, then parading it around the house. Then up flashes a poignant quote of Derek’s on screen: “If pets aren’t allowed in Heaven, I don’t want to go there. I’ll go where the pets are.”
Memo to Kodi, Ricky, Derek and Shorty: stop worrying. You’ve got our vote. Ricky is the overwhelming favorite to win, according to the predictions of Gold Derby Editors, who have watched all of the episodes submitted by nominees to Emmy judges.
