Will Ferrell: It's a 'crime' if Steve Carell doesn't win an Emmy for 'The Office'

Will Ferrell The OfficeWill Ferrell is campaigning for Steve Carell to win an Emmy for his final season on "The Office."

Ferrell recently joined the cast to work closely again with his old pal Carell, who last teamed up with Ferrell on screen in the film adaptation of the TV series "Bewitched" in 2006. Carell's quest for the Emmy has been elusive -- he's lost five times. Last week, Carell took his final bow on the show in a poignant episode that he probably submitted to Emmy judges.

The writers "did such a nice job with that last episode, of making it funny but emotional and poignant," Ferrell told Access Hollywood. "And if Steve doesn’t win an Emmy, it's a crime. As long as I win an Emmy, that'll be fine. But if Steve doesn't, for sure, it's a crime."
