Drew Barrymore was nominated this morning for a best actress Emmy for her role in HBO's Grey Gardens. It's the actress' third Emmy nod. She goes up against her costar in the TV movie, Jessica Lange.
The drama earned 17 nominations, tying it for the most Emmy nominations ever for a TV movie. Justin Timberlake was nominated for guest actor for Saturday Night Live. (He and Andy Samberg won an Emmy 2007 for "D--- in a Box.") Katherine Heigl -- who nearly died on the season finale of Grey's Anatomy -- was not nominated. The actress famously withdrew herself from 2008 consideration, saying she "wasn't given the material" necessary to warrant the honor. Tina Fey's 30 Rock received a record-setting 22 nods, the most of any TV series in history. Jennifer Aniston was nominated for her guest spot on the NBC comedy as well. (She only won one for Friends in 2002.)
