Danson Indifferent To Emmy Wins
CHEERS star TED DANSON has stopped counting his Emmy wins, insisting "no one is paying any attention" to who takes home the prizes at the prestigious award show.
The actor was nominated this year (09) for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Arthur Frobisher on hit U.S. crime drama Damages.
Producers at an early Emmy ceremony this week (begs14Sep09) announced Rescue Me actor Michael J. Fox as the winner of the category - sending Danson home without a trophy.
But the actor insists he's not upset by the loss because even his closest Hollywood pals seem to think he's scooped dozens of Emmys.
He laughs, "I've already lost to Michael J. Fox, who is a friend. It's no big deal, I've lost them before. I've been nominated 14 times. I lost 11 in a row before I actually won for Cheers. I used to be devastated and people used to (say), 'You must've won a dozen of them!' (But) I hadn't won any yet. So you realise no one is paying any attention. They're in their own world."
