Another candidate will be released shortly.
Well, that sucks. Imagine being an actor up for an award at the biggest television event of the year, only to be told that you're ineligible for candidacy because you work too much. That's what happened to 'Veep' star Peter MacNicol who has had his nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series revoked this week.
It's no doubt a disappointment for the actor, but maybe he'll be recognised for his larger role at next year's Emmys. On the grounds of a technicality that labels guest actors as only those who have appeared in less than 50% of a series, Peter MacNicol has been disqualified from the awards show.
