The coach wins an Emmy!
Big congrats to Kyle Chandler for his upset win of an Emmy for his role as Coach Eric Taylor on television's Friday Night Lights. The show also got yet another writing Emmy. Alas, Connie Britton did not win best actress (but you can read more about her here). All the same, a fitting end for the beloved Austin-shot series.
What Chandler said:
"Let me thank the people of Austin, Texas, who welcomed us into their homes ... and brought the show to life."
I first met him on the set the first FNL season. You can read that piece from The Dallas Morning News here.
