Alan Alda was so excited about winning an Emmy for writing in 1979 (pictured above) that he did a cartwheel down the aisle en route to the podium — and landed in Emmy’s pantheon in the process. This wasn’t his first victory. He’d been hailed as best comedy actor in 1974 and earned a statuette in 1977 for directing the M*A*S*H episode ”Dear Sigmund” (which also earned him a writing nom). Alda’s scripting success for the episode ”Inga” made him the only person in Emmy history to win for acting, directing, and writing.
Another great moving-house find. I think this is from “Safi Duka,” the little supermarket jobby in Tanga, Tanzania, where I’d stock up on Pringles. “Opposite town vegetable market.” http://ift.tt/1AXDucy
