“Nurse Jackie” star earns her 12th series nod
Falco was nominated seven times for HBO’s “The Sopranos” and won twice, in 2000 and 2003. On Thursday, she received her fifth nomination for the final season as a pill-popping nurse in Showtime’s dramedy “Nurse Jackie.”
The previous record holder for series acting nominations was Lansbury, who collected a dozen nominations for playing mystery-writing sleuth Jessica Fletcher on CBS’ long-running “Murder She Wrote.”
The British actress also earned six other nominations for movies, specials and guest appearances — but has never won an Emmy.
