Here’s an interview that Jason Ritter did with TVLine’s Megan Masters. In the interview, Ritter talks about how his reaction to receiving a best Guest Actor in a Drama Series nomination for his work on Parenthood. Ritter also talks about Sarah and Mark’s relationship in season 4 and how the arrival of Ray Romano’s character will affect their relationship. Here’s an excerpt from the article where Jason Ritter talks about his reaction to finding out about his Emmy nomination:

-

TVLINE | Congratulations! Take us through your nominations morning. 
There have been times where I’ve opted not to wake up and check [the nominations], but I’ve always known when it was on. And for some reason this year it just totally slipped my mind. So, I went from, “Who is calling me at six in the morning? That is unacceptable!” to “Oh my gosh, someone’s texting me again and again — something horrible has happened!’ to this total surprise. I still can’t quite believe it.

-

TVLINE | Parenthood is a show full of great actors — including yourself — andyou were singled out. That has to feel unbelievable.

-
That does feel crazy, because I feel like a visitor to the awesome planet that isParenthood. [Laughs] Even from the very first second I started working on that show a couple of years ago, it just felt so wonderful.  There are so many incredible actors on that show — all the way from the very young kids to Bonnie Bedelia and Craig T. Nelson. I’ve always felt like I’m trying to keep up and not draw attention to myself as the guy who should clearly not be on the show with all those people.

TVLINE | Did you hear from your Parenthood family?

-
Yeah, I heard from [series creator] Jason Katims, and cast-wise I heard from Lauren [Graham] and Mae [Whitman] and Sarah [Ramos], Peter [Krause]… It’s such a supportive group of people. There’s no ego; everyone is just so happy for me and for the show. I love all those people quite a lot, so it’s nice.

My thoughts: I’m so happy that Jason Ritter received an Emmy nomination for his work on Parenthood. Parenthood is such a wonderful show, and I hate that the show has constantly been overlooked by so many people. While I wish the show had received a best drama nomination and that maybe some of the series regulars could have received Emmy nominations, I’m just glad that the show is finally being recognized for something.
