emmy nod for ‘fnl’ star?
Thousands of fans on Facebook are pushing for “Friday Night Lights” actor Zach
Gilford to be included when nominations for the 62nd annual Primetime Emmy Awards are announced in a week.
Gilford plays Matt Saracen in the high school football drama, which debuted in 2006. It airs first on DirectTV and later in the year on NBC.
As of Friday evening, almost 9,000 people on the social networking site “liked” the idea of Gilford getting an Emmy.
Gilford, 28, who left the show during its current season, says he appreciates the effort. He will return for a story arc in the show’s fifth and reportedly final season, which is now filming.
The Primetime Emmy nominations will be announced Thursday.
