James Cromwell

If you spent any time at all on Twitter last night, you know the Primetime Emmy Awards took place yesterday in Los Angeles — and this year, a slew of our recent guests picked up trophies and nominations.

After three previous nominations, James Cromwell took home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Miniseries Or A Movie for his creepy turn as Dr. Arthur Arden in American Horror Story: Asylum. Last season, George talked to him about playing George H. W. Bush in W and his role in the Canadian film Still Mine:
