Courteney is LONG overdue for an Emmy! Besides, is Lea even funny?
I was in total agreement with the Emmy nominations announced July 8… until it came time for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. There were the usual suspects like Tina Fey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, both of whom I agree belonged on the list, but when I saw Lea Michele nominated for Glee over Courteney Cox for Cougar Town, I couldn’t believe my eyes.
Not only is Cougar Town one of the most under-appreciated comedies on TV right now, but Courteney’s Jules became consistently funnier and more engaging throughout the show’s first season. Meanwhile, Lea’s Rachel never stopped being annoying — and never started being funny.
And this is hardly the first time Courteney has been snubbed by the Emmys. During Friends‘ 10-season run, Courteney was the only to never receive a nomination. Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer were all recognized for their work.
Courteney is hilarious. She at least deserves to be nominated for an Emmy. Case closed.
But you tell me: Am I crazy? Does Lea, in fact, deserve the Emmy nom over Courteney?
