They’ve both won Emmy Awards before but not until this round did Westport’s Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward receive nominations for the same piece of work, the HBO series “Empire Falls.”
Newman was nominated in the category “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie” while Woodward received hers for “Outstanding Actress in a Miniseries or Movie.”
“It’s a deliight,” said Woodward in a statement issued today by the Westport Country Playhouse, where she is artistic director. “We’ve never been nominated for the same movie. It’s fun.”
CBS is scheduled to air the 57th annual Primetime Emmy Awards Sept. 18 from Los Angeles. The nominations were announced July 14.

These nominations were announced two weeks ago, not today.
The Newmans are the greatest. They give and give and then give some more. My wife and I are big fans of their generousity (and their movies too). I think they are heroes to all Westporters.
I couldn’t agree more with Mr. Corrigan! If only more “celebrities” would use them as examples.
