Carl Reiner Is the Oldest Emmy Nominee Ever at 96, but He's Still Got Work to Do



Carl Reiner has accumulated lots of plaudits over his seven decades in the entertainment industry as a writer, producer, director and actor. But alongside his work on the seminal television series “Your Show of Shows” and “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and his directing on films that include “The Jerk” and “All of Me,” Reiner can now claim another designation: At 96, he’s the oldest person ever nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award.

5. How can Mel Brooks and he be in their 90s and not wear glasses?
