Firsts only happen once.

“Justified’s” Walton Goggins likened his first Emmy nomination to being a baby -- or rather, the child-like wonder of experiencing something new.

“I have an 8-month-old son, and I’m reminded that there are so many firsts in life,” Goggins said during a roundtable discussion with fellow first-time Emmy nominees. “Every single day, something new is happening in his life ... and this experience for me has been one that I’ll never forget, because it may very well never happen again, and that would be OK. But it’s been an extraordinary type of experience.”


Goggins was joined by Josh Charles, Michelle Forbes and Johnny Galecki in the roundtable, which was moderated by Los Angeles Times TV critic Mary McNamara last week in anticipation of this weekend’s 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards

Goggins (“Justified”) and Charles (“The Good Wife”) will battle it out in the supporting actor in a drama category. Michelle Forbes (“The Killing”) is holding her own in the supporting actress in a drama category. In the comedic corner, Johnny Galecki (“The Big Bang Theory”) received his first Emmy nomination for lead actor in a comedy.

Show Tracker will post additional videos from the discussion leading up to Sunday’s awards telecast.
