Whoopi Goldberg was nominated for that category for her appearance in this episode. Imogene Coca was also nominated for her role as Agnes' mother, Clara, in Los Dos Dipestos, Season 4, 1988. I'm really surprised Mark Harmon was never named for his role as Sam. Maybe because he was in four episodes, not just one. Wonder if that's a standard they have? Hmm. (Even in season 2, they still missed Dana Delaney in Knowing Her--and if there's some kind of rule about 'one episode,' she'd still meet it!) Rules is rules, and parts is parts, and in any awards decision, there are going to be some deserving people left out. Still, it's a shame.

Looks like Mark Harmon was beat out by the guest stars of L A Law and St. Elsewhere. But, talking about Moonlighting Emmy wins, it is interesting to see how many nominations "Atomic Shakespeare" got and how frequently it was pitted against another ML episode, "I Am Curious... Maddie." The complete 1987 Emmy listings can be found at imdb:
