In addition to Aniston’s nod, The Morning Show earned eight total nominations, including Steve Carell for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series, Billy Crudup and Mark Duplass for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series and Martin Short for Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series.

Jennifer Aniston was previously nominated five times for playing Rachel Green on Friends — winning the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2002 — with a sixth nomination for a guest spot on 30 Rock in 2009.

Aniston’s The Morning Show performance has thus far earned her a Golden Globe nomination and SAG Award win for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series.

MacDailyNews Take: This is just the beginning of an award avalanche for Apple TV+, a streaming service that’s built on quality over quantity.


  1. Congratulations to all for your Emmy nominations in recognition of your, um, talent, I guess is the word.

    Just remember the Gervaisian Prime Directive when at the award show and you win. That is, “If you do win an award. Don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You’re in no position to lecture the public. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school then Greta Thunberg. So, if you win. Come up, accept your little award, thank your God and your agent and #$^^*&-off.”
