Courteney Cox, a friends actor, was finally nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award. Known for acting in the popular sitcom of Monica, Cox was appointed ‘Outstanding Variety Special’ by the Emmys this week as the producer of this year’s Friends reunion special.
The 57-year-old yesterday recognised this honour with a snap-in Instagram behind the scenes (July 13). ‘The one we’ve unbelievably thanked the Academy for this honour and in particular for @mrbenwinston and his whole team for their excellent performance,’ Cox said as the title.
Winston led Friends: the meeting and has been ready for an ‘Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special.’
“I guess it’s [David] Schwimmer when the first person has been nominated for an Emmy, you’re so delighted,” she remembered. “So excited is the second person. It was [when Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow were both nominated] and not myself that I was like ‘Whoa!’ When Lisa and Jennifer were simultaneous, I had difficulty not taking it personally.
“It’s a man, a female, anything. But not me, both of them girls? It stung. That hurt. But I’m quite vulnerable.” Netflix is streaming Friends in the UK, where Comedy Central airs every day. In the US, the show airs on HBO Max.
