Reese Witherspoon Allegedly Upset At Jennifer Aniston For Scoring Her First Dramatic Emmy Nomination
Reese Witherspoon is allegedly upset at Jennifer Aniston for nabbing her first Emmy nomination.
According to Life & Style, Witherspoon thought that she will be the one to score an award at next month’s Emmys. She and Aniston’s characters are nemesis in Apple TV’s The Morning Show.
However, it was Aniston’s performance and not Witherspoon’s that captured the attention of the people behind the award show.
A source told the tabloid that Witherspoon has no other option but to publicly support Aniston to avoid more drama. However, she’s not happy with her co-star’s nomination.
However, one should take these claims with a grain of salt. After all, Witherspoon never said that she’s not happy for Aniston.
It is also unlikely for Witherspoon to be upset with Aniston because it’s not her fault that she got nominated for an award.
In June, Aniston was praised by her Friends co-star, Lisa Kudrow for her performance in The Morning Show.
“You did the work. It was just really clear. You were this other person. And you are poised, but it was a different shade of poise, maturity. It was just really thrilling,” she said.
But Aniston decided to give credit to her acting coach, Nancy Banks for helping her dissect her script.
“I feel like I’ve discovered a whole new doorway into what we do — into acting — that I’d never, in all the years, even thought about. I have a whole new tool belt,” she said.
Aniston’s recent nomination is her first in the drama category. But in the past, she was nominated in the comedy genre.
She was nominated for an Emmy in 2000 and 2001 for her role as Rachel Green in Friends. From 2002 to 2004, she was nominated in the lead category, and she won her first Emmy in 2002.
In related news, hundreds of Witherspoon’s fans are furious that she didn’t score an Emmy nomination this year.
Witherspoon didn’t react to the snub directly but she posted a broken heart emoji on social media shortly after the complete list of nominees was announced.
The actress replied to Lynn Shelton’s nomination for her outstanding direction of Little Fires Everywhere.
“I miss you @thelynnshelton,” Witherspoon wrote.
