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.
