The Office Special

The Office Special Gets
Two Emmy Nominations

BBC America’s The Office Special received two Emmy nominations today, as announced in Los Angeles by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS).

The nominations for the multi award-winning, critically acclaimed

comedy are:

- Outstanding Made for Television Movie

- Outstanding Writing for a Mini Series, Movie or Dramatic Special

Ricky Gervais, co-creator and double Golden Globe winning star, said: “It's a real honor to be nominated for such a prestigious award as myself and Stephen (Merchant) consider the American TV industry to be the best in the world. We are delighted whatever happens on the night, as we believe it's not the winning but the taking part that counts...unless we win - in which case we consider all the other nominees complete losers!” Posted by Picasa
