Mike: (On his Emmy nomination) I was completely shocked. A lot of people say, awards and stuff like this is something that happens through the advent of publicity, and I hadn't had a publicist angling. Well, I don't know if there's angling. There's a tendency when you've worked for a long time in this business to be jaded and to think that it goes to … that nominations and the like goes to the most popular, the person who hustles the most for that kind of attention. In fact, as evidenced by my nomination, it came from the success of the show, the success of the writing and the work that Ryan Murphy had done to bring this character to life.
