He’s definitely not taking it slow. Adam Driver has been nominated for the Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series! Driver was recognized for his work hosting SNL, which included such memorable sketches as the sequel to the Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base skit (which gifted us Randy the Intern), the songs “Slow,” “Medieval Times,” and “Marrying Ketchups,” among others. Driver has been previously nominated three times for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, all for his work on HBO’s Girls. He will compete against Fred Willard (Modern Family), Dev Patel (Modern Love), Eddie Murphy (Saturday Night Live), Brad Pitt (Saturday Night Live), and Luke Kirby (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel).
