Hollywood Walk of Fame

Walk of Fame

Baker is honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame under the category of Television.

It was inspiring. One of the biggest hurdles in my career was having confidence in myself. I was surrounded by people who had more belief in me than I had in myself. You think probably a lot of people (with stars) weren’t necessarily confident they could make a career of it, and that encouraged me to think that maybe I could do it.

Emmy nomination


Baker is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Patrick Jane on The Mentalist.

It’s a pretty tough category, and obviously, I didn’t expect it. The sun has shone on me today. It’s weird. I didn’t jump up and down with excitement when I heard, but I have a more internal explosion going on inside of me. All I can really think is that I’m incredibly lucky.
