Imagine Meryl Streep receives an Emmy nomination and you miss the news. Well, that has just happened y’all :-) Many thanks to Frank for pointing out that on Thursday, Meryl received her career’s fourth Emmy nomination (after acting nods for “Holocaust”, “First Do No Harm” and “Angels in America”) in the category of Outstanding Narration for the Netflix series “Five Came Back”. She shares the category with a bunch of co-stars – Liev Schreiber has received two nominations for narrating “Muhammad Ali: Only One” and “UConn: The March to Madness”. Sam Neill is nominated for “Wild New Zealand” and Ewan McGregor for “Wild Scotland”. Rounding out the category is Laurence Fishburne for narrating National Geographic’s “Year Million”. “Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War,” tells the extraordinary story of how Hollywood changed World War II – and how World War II changed Hollywood, through the interwoven experiences of five filmmakers who interrupted their successful careers to serve their country, risk their lives and bring the truth back to the American people: John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens. Now, since Outstanding Narration will not be the pivotal award of the night (and I’m sure they’re given out during the Creative Emmy Awards), let’s not expect a big Emmy night for Meryl – at least now we know that this category even existed.
