Former Stargate SG-1 co-star Beau Bridges continues to find big success after Stargate. Bridges has been nominated for an Emmy in the category of Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series.
The nomination is for Bridges’ appearance in the Desperate Housewives episode “The Best Thing That Ever Could Have Happened,” as Eli Boggs. His competition includes Steve Martin (30 Rock), John Hamm (30 Rock), Alan Alda (30 Rock), and Justin Timberlake (Saturday Night Live).
Bridges played General Hank Landry in the final two seasons of SG-1, and in the two DVD movies.
Also nominated for this year’s awards is Amanda Tapping’s fantasy series Sanctuary, which has earned its first Emmy nod in the Outstanding Special Visual Effects For A Series category. The show was nominated for the pilot episode, “Sanctuary For All.”
Hosted by Neil Patrick Harris (Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, which also received a nomination), the 2009 Emmy Awards will be broadcast September 20 on CBS in the U.S. Check out the full list of nominations at Emmys.com.
