Norman Lear and Brent Miller (‘Live in Front of a Studio Audience’): Working with Jimmy Kimmel and being ‘a fraction older’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
TV legend Norman Lear became the oldest person to ever win an Emmy last September at age 97. And now he has a shot at breaking his own record with another Emmy nomination at age 98. Both bids were for his “Live in Front of a Studio Audience” variety specials for ABC. Both featured new live adaptations of “All in the Family,” while the 2019 version had “The Jeffersons” and the one from this past December recreated “Good Times.”

Lear had already won four Emmys for “All in the Family” in the 1970s.
