One year after receiving the first Emmy of his illustrious career, Newhart is again among the nominees for outstanding guest actor in a comedy for his portrayal of Professor Proton, the host of the favorite childhood TV show of Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) on CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory.”

Fey and McCarthy received outstanding guest actress in a comedy nominations for hosting “Saturday Night Live.” All but one of the other nominations in the category went to actresses from “Orange is the New Black” –– Uzo Aduba, Laverne Cox and Natasha Lyonne. Joan Cusack from “Shameless” is the other nominee.
