There can only be one winner in the building.
At least that seems to be the case for Only Murders in the Building costars Steve Martin and Martin Short, who are up against one another for the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series award at the 2022 Emmys.
"It's been pretty cutthroat," Steve quipped while chatting with Live From E! Correspondent Laverne Cox on the red carpet. "I asked Marty to announce that he would sacrifice people voting for him for me and he would come off like a hero."
But Martin made it clear he's more interested in being labeled a winner than a hero. "I ignored that call," Martin joked. "Winner takes all!"
As for how Steve will feel if Martin takes home the win? He kept the humor rolling by adding that there will be harsh feelings "to go along with existing bitterness."
With that being said, there is a chance both will be scoring an Emmy Award tonight. After all, Steve is also up for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series alongside John Hoffman for Only Murders in the Building.
As for rumors Steve is going to retire following the success of the Hulu series? Well, as it turns out, his idea of retirement looks a little different than what fans assume.
"Well this is it. I'm doing a television show, I've got a book coming out and I'm touring with this guy," Steve said in reference to Martin. "So, that kinda is my retirement."
