Nearly two decades after Friends ended, Courteney Cox received a late honor: she was nominated for an Emmy for the producer of the show’s reunion show. Before that, she was the only one who was never considered – and had to nibble on it.
Actress Courteney Cox can look forward to an Emmy nomination for ‘Friends’ – finally. Cox was the only one of the six-member acting ensemble who never received a nomination for the successful sitcom.
17 years after the end of the series, the Reunion Special, broadcast in May, has now been nominated for four Emmys. Including for the production of the one-off show. Since Cox co-produced the whole thing with her fellow lead actors David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc, she is also on the list. It’s a late satisfaction. Because in the ten-year term, ‘Friends’ received a proud 62 Emmy nominations, Kudrow and Aniston even won one. LeBlanc was nominated three times, Schwimmer and Perry once each. Only Cox, who played the neurotic Monica Gellar on the series, went empty-handed.
Courteney Cox was sad because she didn’t get an Emmy nomination for Friends at the time
The 57-year-old recently said in an interview how bitter it was for her. ‘It definitely hurt my feelings,’ she said on the radio show hosted by US presenter Howard Stern. ‘I was happy for everyone, but when it finally became clear that I was the only one, it hurt,’ said Cox. She found consolation when, after ‘Friends’, she was even nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in the series ‘Cougar Town’. ‘I’d like to say I didn’t care, but it meant a lot to me,’ Cox admitted.

She was all the more pleased about the nomination. ‘The episode in which we are incredibly grateful to the Academy for this honor and especially grateful to (the producer, editor’s note) Ben Winston and his entire team for this incredible achievement,’ she wrote on Instagram.
