I rarely let my emotions get the best of me, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get a little verklempt by the sight of Friday Night Lights‘ long overdue Emmy contenders Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton walking the red carpet yesterday as full-fledged nominees. So they didn’t win. Big deal. The positive buzz surrounding FNL‘s fifth and final season all but ensures they’ll be in the running again next year. But back to this year’s event, watch what went down on the red carpet with Britton and Chandler before the ceremony (hint: lots of silliness, an impromptu purse search, and talk of a possible—make that impossible—sixth season).
