Julia Roberts laughs off Emmy nomination exclusion
After not receiving an Emmy nomination for her portrayal of Heidi Bergman, the actor took to Instagram to respond to the news in a light-hearted manner
Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts is not fretting over being overlooked at the Emmy nominations this year for her role in the series Homecoming. Rather, she has laughed it off.
"Well, I'm in exceptional company at least," Roberts wrote on Instagram while sharing a screenshot of a news alert that read: 'Biggest Emmy nomination snubs: Julia Roberts, George Clooney and Emma Stone are among the A-listers shut out', highlighting the fact that she was not the only big star to have missed a nomination this year.
The actor was expected to receive the Emmy nod for her portrayal of Heidi Bergman, a caseworker who helps US soldiers transition back to civilian life, on the Amazon Prime show.
Roberts missed out in the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category, which this year has nominations for Emilia Clarke (Game Of Thrones), Viola Davis (How To Get Away with Murder), Sandra Oh (Killing Eve), Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Laura Linney (Ozark), Mandy Moore (This Is Us) and Robin Wright (House Of Cards).
Roberts has been previously nominated for an Emmy in 2014, for the mini-series The Normal Heart, and in 1999 for her guest role on Law & Order.
