'Special' Actor Ryan O'Connell Earns Emmy Nom After a Snafu!

Ryan O’Connell just earned his second Emmy nomination after the Academy disqualified a nominated series!

Better Call Saul short Employee Training: Madrigal Electromotive Security is no longer eligible for nominations as it didn’t meet the requirements of having a minimum of six episodes with a run-time of two minutes.

The show lost its nominations for Outstanding Short Form Comedy Or Drama Series and Outstanding Actor In A Short Form Comedy Or Drama Series for Jonathan Banks.

The series State of the Union received the series nomination while Ryan got the acting nomination for his work on Special. The new nominees had received the next highest number of votes in the category, according to THR.

Ryan had previously received a nomination for producing Special, which is up for Outstanding Short Form Comedy Or Drama Series.

“Omg! Thanks to a snafu, I got an Emmy nomination for best actor in Special! Looks like I better call Saul to say thank you!!! (is that joke OK or should I just send myself to jail now?),” he wrote on Instagram after the news was announced.
