In the episode “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Crying,” Will is ready to take his career to the next level by becoming a senior partner at his firm.
It’s not an entirely dramatic performance, though, as Mc Cormack goes broad and over-the-top in expressing his feelings, ultimately scaring his date off.
The NBC sitcom was nominated for 27 Golden Globes in its original run, including five times for Mc Cormack, but never took home a single trophy.
In a wide-open field, Mc Cormack could win Best TV Comedy Actor and allow “Will & Grace” to finally be called a Golden Globe-winning show.
“Maybe now there’s other stuff to talk about,” Mc Cormack said.
Since “Will & Grace” ended its eight-season run on NBC in 2006, speculation about a revival has periodically popped up, gaining steam after the election special in September.
