Aniston’s past nominations
Deadline noted that Aniston had been nominated in the comedy category six times before – five times for Friends and once for 30 Rock as a guest star.
At the recent 2020 SAG Awards, she won the Female Actor in a Drama Series category also for The Morning Show.
The television drama tells a story of broadcast morning show whose hosts have different problems. Mitch (Steve Carell) has been ousted from the network for his sexual harassment issue.
His co-anchor and best friend, Alex (Aniston), is trying to hold her aging career amid the threat of a younger co-anchor, Bradley (Reese Witherspoon). She is also trying to argue the case of Mitch with the internal network execs and the show’s producer.
Despite the critics’ poor review of the show, it proves itself with several award nominations and wins. This year, it has eight Emmy nominations. It also got three nominations from Golden Globe Awards last year.
Now, it remains to be seen if Jennifer Aniston will once again go home with an award for The Morning Show.
