it’s becoming more common to see actors pulling double-duty on television; particularly with the ever-growing list of actors appearing in guest spots. Some of those actors could even find themselves eligible for Emmy recognition in more than one category.
For actors enjoying a regular role on television, recognition in the guest category can be an extra bonus. Oscar nominee and four-time Emmy winner Alfre Woodard made an exciting villain on “Luke Cage,” but still found time to appear in two episodes of “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” both for Netflix.

Happy Sleep in Public Day!
If you are a cog in the daily grind, you have probably celebrated this holiday a few times throughout the year. Animals, they indulge in public sleep everyday. That’s what happens when the world is your bedroom.
