GeekDad Puzzle of the Week – Anagrammed Emmy Winners

Reading Time: 1 minute

Watching the Primetime Emmy Awards a few weeks back, I was surprised to hear that Morgan Freeman was nominated for an Emmy this year, for his role as a supporting actor in a mini-series. I mean, he was nominated for an Emmy back in 2012 for “Through the Wormhole,” but I didn’t think that he was even in the “Sherlock” mini-series at all.

MartinMorgan_teaserAfter realizing that I had confused Martin Freeman’s nomination with Morgan Freeman’s name, I thought “Mix ups at the Emmys? What a great idea for a GeekDad puzzle!”

Below, please find anagrammed versions of the names of 16 recent (2000 or later) Emmy Award winners. This week’s GeekDad Puzzle of the Week is to simply unscramble or decipher each of the names.

EXAMPLE: The letters in Morgan Freeman’s name can be rearranged to spell NEON GAME FARMER. Similarly, his counterpart Martin Freeman’s name can spell REARM FAINT MEN.

Here is the list of slightly scrambled thespians:

  • LICE TENT TOOL
  • SPEARED JAMS
  • A GREMLIN MATADOR
  • HAIL SLIME CHICK
  • JOIN INFANT SNEER
  • SAINTED WINE
  • HAMMIEST GIG
  • IMMENSE CHOLERA
  • LIMIEST NARWHAL
  • SEMIANNUAL JAIL RUG
  • BAN CARNY SNORT
  • DEPARTING LEEK
  • MYTHICAL SCREAMS
  • SNUB HOLY OATH
  • I YEN FAT

As always, please send in your solutions to GeekDad Central. All correct (or reasonably close) submissions will be entered into a random drawing for this week’s fabulous prize – a $50 Gift Certificate from our friends over at ThinkGeek.
