Gold Derby can exclusively reveal that Henry Winkler is entering the “Barry” episode “Chapter Four: Commit to You?” as his Emmy submission for Best Comedy Supporting Actor. This installment aired April 15 and was the fourth episode of the first season for the HBO show.
In this segment, Gene Cousineau (Winkler) criticizes the reading by Barry (Bill Hader) of his speech from “Glengarry Glen Ross.” Gene is seen in his pathetic life as an auditioning actor but continues to return to open arms to teach his acting class. He calls Detective Moss for a date, who wants to meet him for information and not romance. Enjoy our recent video chat with Winkler discussing this season and his career.
This year marks the sixth career Emmy nomination for Winkler, with the last being in 2000 for “The Practice.” He was nominated three times for his iconic role as Fonzie on “Happy Days” (1976, 1977, 1978) and for producing “Who Are The Debolts?” (1979). For the 2018 ceremony, he is up against reigning champ Alec Baldwin (“Saturday Night Live”), past winners Louie Anderson (“Baskets”) and Tony Shalhoub (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”), and former nominees Tituss Burgess (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Brian Tyree Henry (“Atlanta”) and Kenan Thompson (“Saturday Night Live”).
