Michael J. Fox, Will Arnett and Lorne Michaels among Canadians receiving 2012 Emmy nominations

The 2012 prime time Emmy nominations list is full of Canadians: Michael J. Fox is up for Outstanding Guest Actor for his recurring role on The Good Wife; Rosedale-raised Will Arnett received a nod for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy for his work on 30 Rock; and Toronto-born SNL creator Lorne Michaels is up for a writing award. There also appears to be an appetite for children’s programming that frankly discusses teen issues, like being transgendered or  a teen mom who is an aspiring pop singer, because for the second year in a row, Degrassi is nominated in the Outstanding Children’s Program category.
