Dick Van Dyke is the oldest actor to be nominated for an Emmy
April 19th, 2024 under Dick Van Dyke, Emmys. [ Comments: none ]

Dick Van Dyke was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Guest Performance in a Daytime Drama. The 98-year-old actor received the nomination for playing Mystery Man/Timothy Robicheaux on Days of our Lives last year.

While that is an honor in itself, he received another honor because of it. He is now the oldest actor to be nominated for an Emmy. Before today, David Attenboro held that title at 92.

If Van Dyke wins, it will be its seventh Emmy win and third Daytime Emmy.

Hopefully, he will bring home the statuette at the 51st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on June 7th. You can watch the awards show on CBS.

Dick Van Dyke was serenaded at Disneyland

Dick Van Dyke went to Disneyland yesterday, and he found himself being serenaded by some of his biggest fans. As soon as The Dapper Dans saw the legend, they had to sing to him one of their favorite tunes, Jolly Holiday from Mary Poppins, a little film he made 60 years ago with Julie Andrews (who turned 88 yesterday).

What did the 97-year-old think of their rendition? He loved it. And he shared a little story about filming that song, “Julie sang, like, a little sharp on top of the note, and I just went crazy. I’m flat most of the time. I had trouble staying with her because she was always a little bit sharp.” I never noticed during the umpteenth times my older niece made me watch that musical.

Back to the barbershop quartet, I loved their faces beaming with pride because they were able to sing for the OG and GOAT. It is a moment they will never forget. For all of the people they have delighted throughout the years, it was nice to see them being delighted by someone else.

And back to Van Dyke. Even though he is sitting in a wheelchair during their performance, he was standing up in other videos that were captured from the park yesterday.

Dick Van Dyke is 97, so you would think he has done it all. He hasn’t.

This year has been full of firsts for the beloved actor. First, he appeared on The Masked Singer, which was his singing competition debut. And in the Fall, he was will make his soap opera debut on Days of our Lives on Peacock.

He will play a mysterious older gentleman with amnesia who is helped by John Black (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena Evans (Diedre Hall).

And Van Dyke has Hogestyn to thank for the role. “Drake and I went to the same gym together. I used to kid him, ‘Don’t you have any parts for old people? C’mon get me a part,'” Van Dyke told Access Hollywood. “He took me seriously and got me a part.”

Even though he has been playing older men since his youth, this is the first time playing one that is not comedic.

I can’t wait to see Van Dyke on DOOL! Who knows, maybe he will stick around like Jackée Harry has.

When police arrived on the scene, they noticed that he was bleeding from his mouth and nose, but he refused to go to the hospital even though they suspected that he might’ve suffered a concussion.

Hopefully, he is OK and back to his old self.
