LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The cast of Chicago Hope has a case of jangled nerves when it comes to award ceremonies.

First, Christine Lahti pulled her infamous “bathroom boo-boo” at the Golden Globes when she almost missed receiving her award because she was in the ladies room.

Now, co-star Hector Elizondo reveals he pulled his own goof at the Emmy Awards last September when he forgot to kiss his wife or even thank her in his acceptance speech.

Elizondo maintains he was so shocked at receiving the award he just plum forgot about his wife, and, as a result, he’s still paying for his blunder.

He says he’ll be trying to make it up to his wife on Valentine’s Day tomorrow – but he didn’t say how.

By the way, Elizondo’s latest side project is hosting the Academy of TV Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame Program. The show, which will air March 9th on Showtime, will honor Elizondo’s good buddy Gary Marshall, Taxi producer James L. Brooks, and Diane Sawyer, among others.
