Emmys: A final hurrah for “ER”

Rodholcomb

NBC’s “ER” capped its farewell season on Sunday with a win in the drama directing category for helmer Rod Holcomb.

Holcomb (pictured) deftly handled the series’ two-hour closer, “And in the End,” just as he sent the show off on its storied run back in 1994 by helming the pilot, “24 Hours.” He was Emmy nommed for the pilot (he won the DGA Award that year) and one other “ER” seg, but the statuette eluded him until Sunday night.

But Holcomb wasn’t at the Nokia Theater to pick up his award. Ever the consummate pro, the helmer was on the other side of the country in Gotham, getting ready for the start of shooting today on an episode of CBS’ frosh Julianna Margulies drama “The Good Wife.”

So here’s one last hearty congrats to Holcomb and to “ER.” The show holds the Emmy record as the most-nommed series with 124 bids, and a total of 22 — let’s make that 23 — wins.
