law and order 2013 emmy nominees infographic zap2it The 2013 Emmy Nominees, 'Law & Order' connection   An infographicRecently, “Boardwalk Empire’s” Ron Livingston told Zap2it of his time on HBO’s “Sex and the City”: “I don’t think there’s an actor in New York who didn’t either die on a ‘Law & Order’ or wasn’t one of Carrie’s boyfriends.”

While not all of 2013’s Emmy nominees died on “Law & Order” (some of them had to be the killer/rapist/criminal mastermind), 29 of them have a connection with one or more installment of the “L&O” franchise.

“Homeland’s” Morena Baccarin did her time as a “Criminal Intent” extra, and “30 Rock” nominee Alec Baldwin has actually never been on “Law & Order.” But he did get a co-credit for the story that became Season 8’s “Tabloid.”

Bobby Cannavale — who is nominated for both his “Boardwalk Empire” and “Nurse Jackie” roles this year — has always been an overachiever, having appeared on “Law & Order,” “SVU” and “Criminal Intent.” But “The Big C: Hereafter’s” John Benjamin Hickey does him one better, adding an episode of “Law & Order: LA” to his resume as well.

Want to check out your favorite nominees “Law & Order” roles? Below is a handy guide to which episode from what season they appeared in.

The 2013 Primetime Emmys air Sunday, Sept. 22 on CBS. The 15th season of “Law & Order SVU” premieres Wednesday, Sept. 25 on NBC.

Brill Bundy has spent her entire career covering TV and pop culture. This is what happens when your parents try and limit your viewing habits to three shows a week. Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
