"I'm what the world considers to be a phenomenally successful man. And I've failed much more than I've succeeded. And each time I fail, I get my people together, and I say, "Where are we going?" And it starts to get better." - Calvin Trager

That's right ... Erin O'Malley is up for an Emmy. Now, if you don't know who Erin O'Malley is, you just haven't been paying attention! You probably remember her work on the short-lived but critically acclaimed (it had to be by somebody, didn't it?) Greg The Bunny, or perhaps her higher-profile work as a co-producer of Curb Your Enthusiasm. But I first met her as a second-grader at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Day School in Tucson, where I knew her then as the kid sister of my great friend, Ian O'Malley (who is currently bragging on his sister to anyone who will listen ... and who can blame him!).
But now Erin is all grown up and nominated for her first Emmy. And even though I've never seen Da Ali G Show (don't have HBO ... sorry, Erin!), and even though it is up against a show I watch almost every night, I will actually watch the Emmy's this year and hope to see Erin strolling up on stage to claim her statuette!
Whatever your field is, it's great when you get recognized for being one of the best. And that's what Erin is.
