Henry Winkler had received an Emmy nomination for 'Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy' for his appearance in the episode Walter's Rib, but after newspaper reporter Alan Sepinwall pointed out that the episode had been postponed to June from an earlier scheduled airdate and therefore missed the Emmy's May 31 deadline, the nomination was withdrawn.[9][10]
