Courteney Cox ‘Grateful’ For Emmy Nods | Television
Courteney Cox is “incredibly grateful” to finally receive an Emmy nomination for “Friends” thanks to the reunion special.
The cast of the classic sitcom reunited for a nostalgic return to the series on HBO Max earlier this year and the one-off show won four nominations for this year’s ceremony, including an Outstanding Variety Special (pre-recorded), a exceptional production design for a special variety, exceptional staging for a special variety, and exceptional lighting design / direction for a special variety.
Along with series creators Marta Kauffman and David Cane, Courteney and her cast mates – Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer – were the executive producers of “Friends: The Reunion”.
That means she finally received a Primetime Emmy nod for the show – and as a whole – after being the only actor to miss both during the original run and her post-‘Friends’ career.
Responding to the news on Instagram, Courteney wrote: “One where we are incredibly grateful to the Academy for this honor and most of all grateful to @mrbenwinston and his entire team for their outstanding achievement. (Sic)”
The cast all thanked Ben Winston, who ran the reunion special.
David Schwimmer shared Courteney’s post, while Jennifer said: “Kudos to my family @friends on FOUR Emmy nominations. It was such a special reunion for us and we couldn’t be happier to share it all with you. .
