Carl Reiner laughs all the way to the Emmys (again), at 96

(CNN)Carl Reiner became the oldest-ever nominee for an Emmy Award in July — for his role, appropriately enough, narrating and appearing in the HBO documentary “If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast,” about people staying active into their 90s and beyond.Reiner, 96, won his first Emmy in 1957 — for “Caesar’s Hour” — and his last in 1995, for a guest performance on “Mad About You.” The writer, producer, director and actor was also inducted into the Television Academy’s Hall of Fame four years later, giving him a dozen honors — four, he noted in an interview, for each of his three kids after he’s gone.Divvying up a 13th Emmy would be a high-class problem, but if it arises, Reiner knows who to credit and blame: His nephew by marriage, George Shapiro, the veteran talent manager who produced “Seinfeld,” and who suggested that Reiner work with him on a documentary that was to be tentatively titled “Vital After 90.”
