Neil Patrick Harris receives a third Emmy nomination

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Neil Patrick Harris, already nominated for 2010 Emmys for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series (How I Met Your Mother) and outstanding guest actor in a comedy series (Glee) has belatedly received a third Emmy nomination for hosting last year’s Tony Awards.

Awards expert Tom O’Neil who does the Gold Derby blog for the Los Angeles Times explains why the third nomination comes a little late: Harris’ name was missing from the list of Emmy nominees in the race for best special-class program when bids were unveiled last month. Hosts of award shows used to compete in the old Emmy category of best performance in a variety special (Hugh Jackman won for hosting the Tonys in 2005), but that contest was eliminated last year. Award-show hosts are now grouped with the producers of the kudocasts. If the award show wins best special-class program, then the host wins along with its producers.

Although 2008 host Whoopi Goldberg was included in that year’s nomination and Oscar hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin are included in the Emmy nod for the Academy Awards, NPH’s name was ommitted.
