Matt sizes up Emmy to Tony
Here's how tenacious our Derbyites can be. After viewing "Lend Me a Tenor" on Broadway, our trusty forums moderator Matt Noble waited at the stage door to have a word with Tony Shalhoub and let him know that he's got an excellent shot at winning his fourth Emmy for "Monk," thus beating two-time recent champ Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock"). The sample episode Tony gave to Emmy judges is the two-hour series finale in which Monk finally solves his wife's murder. It's not only a big operatic performance full of Monk's signature, wacky ticks, but it's a much longer performance in terms of screen time than the ones submitted by rival nominees.Tony seems surprised to hear the good Emmy news.
