Emmys: David Morse — give him one already

DavidmorseAll of those great seasons on “St. Elsewhere” and David Morse had to wait until last year to nab his first Emmy nom, for a guest role on Fox’s “House.” And he didn’t win.

Morse is up again this year for supporting actor in a movie or miniseries for “John Adams,” and for pity’s sake, HBO trusted him enough to cast him as George Washington. Give him an Emmy already. (Unfortunately, the competish is pretty tough, from Denis Leary and Bob Balaban of “Recount” to Morse’s “John Adams” costars Tom Wilkinson and Stephen Dillane.)

Morse is one of the great character thesps of this generation of TV and film crossover players — a face that the public knows well but can’t place the name. He elevates anything he’s in, because he’s so darn good.

Morse really went through hell (on screen) during the run of “St. Elsewhere,” and he’s only gotten better since then. Give this man an Emmy already.
