Flight of Conchords soar at Emmy nominations

New Zealand comedy duo Flight of the Conchords is among the top nominees for the upcoming Emmy Awards. The group’s eponymous telly series has been nominated for Best Comedy Series, while one half of the duo, Jemaine Clement, is up for Best Actor in a Comedy Series. The show will do battle with the hit series ’30 Rock’, which leads the field with an astounding 22 nominations. Also up for an award is the late Farrah Fawcett. Her documentary, ‘Farrah’s Story’, about her battle with cancer, has been given a nod for outstanding Nonfiction Special. Her longtime partner Ryan o’Neal says, “For the Television Academy to recognise Farrah’s Story with this nomination is such a wonderful acknowledgment for Farrah and her legacy. I know that she is smiling that fabulous smile right now in heaven and that she is grateful that the show has been so well received not only by her peers in the industry but by the public at large.”
