Friends: Courteney Cox suffered from being the only one not nominated to Emmys


“When all the actors were appointed except me, it hurt my heart”

Thursday night, the special episode of the cult series Friends, Reunion (The Reunion in original version), was broadcast unencrypted on TF1. On this Sunday, June 27, TFX will in turn offer to (re) see him, at 9:05 p.m.

This is what we will remember from Friends: the reunion

Between 1994 and 2004 and in ten seasons, the actors of the series Friends have been nominated no less than sixteen times at the Emmy Awards. All except one. Surprisingly, Courtney Cox, who played Monica Geller, never had this honor. The actress, recently guest on the radio show SiriusXM, Howard Stern, with her friends and teammates Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green) and Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay) returned to an anecdote that particularly struck her.

Indeed, Lisa Kudrow was the group’s most mentioned actress at the Emmy Awards, with six nominations in the category “Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series” and won the award in 1998. Jennifer Aniston was named five times and also won the “Outstanding Leading Actress in a Comedy Series” award in 2002, Matt LeBlanc won three Emmy, and David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry have each been nominated once. Cox said: “It always hurt me. When all the actors were nominated except me, it hurt my heart. I was happy for everyone, then I thought to myself “Oh, so am I the only one? It hurts.”

Which did not prevent her from being happy for her friends: “I want them to win. I never wanted to take anything away from anyone. I just want to be a part of some things … And the girls and guys on this show have all earned their nominations. . I am in awe of their talent. “

Subsequently, that did not prevent Cox from receiving an award in turn, the Golden Globe, for his series. Cougar Town, on ABC: “The only thing that made me feel good – because they all won and received so many accolades – was being nominated for Cougar Town, to the Golden Globes. It meant a lot to me. I wanted my peers to respect me, and I know the Golden Globes aren’t my peers, but I thought to myself “hey, that removes a bit of the sting”.

Especially since the actress may not have been nominated for an Emmy, but she still received quite a few other awards for Friends : the Golden Apple Awards for “Female Revelation of the Year” in 1995, the People’s Choice Awards for “Favorite Actress in a New TV Series” the same year, the TV Guide Awards for “Best Cast” in 2000 … In short, enough to reassure her a little.

Outraged Friends, Aniston was also nominated for “Best Actress in a Drama Series” at the Emmy for her role in The Morning Show.
