The Awardist podcast: The Big Bang Theory director Mark Cendrowski on his Emmy nod and the future of comedy
The CBS sitcom that surpassed Cheers this year as the longest-running multi-camera sitcom in TV history only earned three nods for its final season — and only for the behind-the-scenes players. There were no shout-outs in the comedy or acting categories.
But Mark Cendrowski, who earned his second nomination on TBBT for directing the finale episode, "The Stockholm Syndrome," is far from complaining. In this latest episode of EW's The Awardist podcast, Cendrowski tells us about those final days on the finale — which attracted the largest audience for any regularly scheduled entertainment program during the 2018-19 season — while making a positive prognosis for the future of multi-cam sitcoms.
