Comedy legend Carl Reiner turns Emmy shot into punchline

LOS ANGELES — Comedy mastermind Carl Reiner can’t help turning his latest Emmy nomination into a punchline.

The 96-year-old creator of “The Dick Van Dyke Show” already has 12 Emmy trophies. Reiner, the oldest-ever Emmy nominee, says winning No. 13 would create a problem: how to divide the awards evenly among his children.

Reiner is nominated as the narrator of the documentary “If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast” that looks at how people — including 92-year-old Mel Brooks — stay active and vibrant.

The Emmy Awards will air Sept. 17 on NBC.
