LOS ANGELES — Tony Shalhoub has spent the better part of the past two decades in the running for a Primetime Emmy thanks to two shows: USA Network’s “Monk” — which earned him three trophies — and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” from Amazon Prime Video, which he won in 2019. Shalhoub’s run as Adrian Monk ended over 12 years ago. And his role as Abe Weissman is coming to an end; “Maisel” is currently filming its fifth and final season.
For the fourth time since 2018, Shalhoub is up for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
“(It) kills me,” the actor told USA TODAY of the show’s final season at The Hollywood Reporter and SAG-AFTRA’s Emmy nominees party on Saturday night in West Hollywood. “It was such a good job. But they all come to an end. And I think we’re going to go out on a really high note.

Shalhoub, 68, called the Emmys “more of a community thing than a competition,” but admitted it’s an easier stance to take when you own five of those six-pound statuettes (he won a Daytime Emmy in addition to its four Primetime Awards). Others at Saturday night’s event are looking for their first, including Sheryl Lee Ralph, who is up for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in ABC’s ‘Abbott Elementary,’ alongside of her teammate Janelle James. This is the first nomination for both.
“I had no idea how quickly my life would change with this appointment,” said Ralph, 65. “The kind of phone calls you get. The way business changes. It’s all been so different.
Ralph wouldn’t divulge specifics, but gushed about her awards season experience as a nominee, calling it “everything you’ve come to expect from the premiere.”

This does not always guarantee that it will be memorable. Christina Ricci replied “not much” when asked what she remembered from her first nomination. He returned in 2006 for his guest role on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.” Ricci is nominated again, this time for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her performance in Showtime’s “Yellowjackets.”
First look: ‘Little Mermaid’ Halle Bailey singing, ‘Lion King’ prequel, ‘Snow White’ live-action
Attendees at the Saturday night bash weren’t exclusively Emmy nominees, past or present. Rachel Zegler is currently filming the “Hunger Games” prequel in Germany. But the actress, 21, returned to the United States and appeared alongside Gal Gadot at D23, Disney’s fan expo, in Anaheim over the weekend to unveil a first look at the new live action. “Snow White”. On Saturday night, the “West Side Story” star dropped by as a fan.
“I’m just here to support everyone named Oscar Isaac, and everyone named Andrew Garfield and everyone in ‘Squid Game,'” Zegler said. “I just listed all my favorites. If they ever want a coffee, I’m here.
Isaac and Garfield have more in common than Zegler’s support. Both are nominated for the first time at the Emmys, and they compete in the same category: best actor in a limited series.
Or, as Shalhoub might put it, they happen to be in the same community.
