‘Grace’ gurus have will to fill trophy case

Skein has nabbed kudos in nearly all categories except writing

NBC’s “Will & Grace” enters its final awards campaign as one of the most decorated comedies in Emmy history, winning 14 trophies and garnering 73 nominations over its eight seasons.

The ensembler has won virtually every major award, with lead thesps Debra Messing and Eric McCormack and supporting actors Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes each taking a trophy at one point or another, and the skein winning comedy series in 2000 and getting noms in that category every year since.

“Grace” has been prolific in categories including guest thesp — Bobby Cannavale and Gene Wilder both won there — while also winning trophies in crafts areas like cinematography (five wins) and art direction (three). The series also has won for helming and casting.

Still, the series’ producers want it all. What trophy do they think they’re missing?

“Definitely the writing,” says David Kohan, who shares creator and exec producer credit with Max Mutchnick. “We’ve always felt like the writing staff at ‘Will & Grace’ never received the recognition that it deserved.”
