When the Emmy nominations were announced last month, the star of a popular sitcom received two nominations. However, he is now officially being credited with three nominations after an oversight caused his name to be overlooked in one category, the L.A. Times reports.
Neil Patrick Harris, who appears in CBS’s "How I Met Your Mother," collected two nods when the nominations were announced–one for outstanding supporting actor for the sitcom and another for outstanding guest actor on "Glee." But Harris emceed the nominated Tony Awards broadcast, the story reports, and will receive the Emmy–along with the producers–if the show wins in the best special-class program.
Therefore, Harris officially has three nominations for the upcoming Emmy Awards, scheduled for Aug. 29.
Although earlier reports attributed the oversight to the TV Academy, the mistake was apparently on the part of the producers of the Tony Awards broadcast, who left Harris off the entry. The TV Academy said it added Harris to the nomination last week after receiving a request from the producers.
