Dean Haspiel for Outstanding Main Title Design (Bored To Death). And Todd Levin for Outstanding Writing For A Variety, Music Or Comedy Series (The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien).

Inside is an accordion-style, full-color reproduction of the notebook, which incorporates pasted-in photographs, poems, collages, paintings, and a letter Michael once wrote home, along with fragments typed by Carson.”
