Clear eyes, full hearts, could win: Chandler and Britton earn noms

NUP_136830_0071Finally, a touchdown for Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton.

The two performers, long neglected for their celebrated work on “Friday Night Lights,” each scored Emmy lead acting nominations today for their work on the series’ fourth season.

Overall, “Lights” received four Emmy nominations today, matching the program’s total from its first three seasons combined. Rolin Jones was nominated today for writing “The Son” episode, while Linda Lowy, John Brace and Beth Sepko were cited for the fourth year in a row for casting.

The noms are credited to DirecTV, which helped “Lights” keep on the air through an arrangement with NBC. Though a small amount of hope remains that the clock has not officially run out on “Lights,” the cast and crew are aware that their current production season is likely their last.

“The thing that makes this so sweet is that we only have two episodes left (to film),” Britton said this morning. “Another thought was this was good for the show. We’re always thinking of ways the show can be saved at the 11th hour.”
