During “Friends’” 10-year run, the show amassed 62 Emmy nominations and six wins, but not one of them was for Courteney Cox. As many know, the erstwhile Monica Geller was the only actor of the sextet to not be nominated, which is frankly very rude (insert a Monica “I know!” gif here). Cox has never been nominated at the Primetime Emmys for any project (she does have a Daytime Emmy bid for “Celebrity Name Game”), but that can finally change this year with a little help from her “Friends” — or “Friends: The Reunion” specifically.
After finding the show’s name in the nomination list of 73rd Emmy Awards, ‘Friends’ actors, including Courteney, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer, took to their respective Instagram handles to express their happiness over the achievement.
Courtney posted a group picture of the whole cast from the sets of the reunion episode and wrote: “The one where we are incredibly grateful to the Academy for this honour and especially thankful for @mrbenwinston and his entire team for their outstanding achievement.”
