Boardwalk, which has already earned Golden Globes for the show and leading man Steve Buscemi, could do even more damage at next weekend's prime-time Emmy Awards, where the show looks to keep Mad Men from being named Outstanding Drama Series for a fourth consecutive year. Buscemi and co-star Kelly Macdonald are also nominated for best actor and best supporting actress in a drama.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Justin Timberlake took home awards for their guest appearances on Glee and Saturday Night Live, respectively. (Timberlake was also honored for co-writing his opening monologue). On the drama side, Paul McCrane won for his guest spot on Harry's Law while Loretta Devine's guest-star work on Grey's Anatomy was recognized.
