It's Courteney Cox
's day, week, month, and (possibly) year: she's finally gotten her
long-awaited Emmy nomination for "Friends."
On Tuesday, the 57-year-old actress, best known for her role as Monica Geller on the hit NBC
series Friends, was nominated in the Outstanding Variety
Special (Pre-Recorded) category for her role in the HBO Max
special "Friends: The Reunion
Cox co-created the special with Marta Kauffman and David Crane, as well as Jennifer Aniston
, Lisa Kudrow
, Matt LeBlanc
, Matthew Perry
, and David Schwimmer
Prior to the show's cancellation in 2004, it had received 62 Emmy nominations, with Aniston receiving five, Kudrow receiving six, LeBlanc receiving three, and Perry and Schwimmer receiving one each.
Last month, Cox told Howard Stern
on his SiriusXM radio show that the snubs had hurt her.
“Yeah, it always hurt my feelings,” Cox admitted. “When every single cast member was nominated except me, it definitely hurt my feelings; I was happy for everybody, and then it was like, ‘Oh, I'm the only one?'”
