Courteney Cox has finally been nominated for an Emmy Award, but as she says, it’s not really the one she was after.
Don’t get Cox wrong, she’s totally happy for the reunion’s creator, Ben Winston for conjuring up one hugely successful reunion special. It’s just considering that every other Friends actor has received an Emmy for their acting work, she’s the only one who hasn’t.
Cox told Entertainment Weekly, “Honestly, I am so happy that the reunion has been recognized because I think it’s terrific. Ben Winston did a great job and all of his crew.”
However she says, “That’s not exactly the Emmy I was looking for. I’m being honest with you.”
Despite her nomination not falling under the acting category, Cox adds, “I’m so happy to be a part of it.”
“I’m so thrilled that I got to do it onstage back at that same studio, the same Stage 24, with those incredible people that I love so much. And I’m so thrilled, but that Emmy [nomination] really belongs to Ben Winston… So yes, I’m so happy. But when I was on Howard Stern, I wasn’t talking about that.”
Cox is reportedly referring to an interview she did with Howard Stern where she said that being the only Friends actor not be nominated for an Emmy award ” always hurt my feelings. I was happy for everybody, and then when it was finally like, ‘Oh, I’m the only one?’ It hurt.”
