Selena Gomez Lands An Emmy Nomination As A Producer, But Snubbed For Lead Role

Only Murders In The Building became a very popular series among fans & received some nominations for Emmys too. But looks like they snubbed the very popular Singer & Actress Selena Gomez from the acting nominations.

Despite getting ignored as the lead actress in the comedy category nomination, she became the first-ever Latina producer after Salma Hayek to get nominated for being the executive producer of Only murders in the building. In the year 2007, the Eternals actress Salma Hayek was nominated for executive producing the series named “Ugly Betty”.

After her, it’s Selena Gomez who landed an Emmy nomination for the fan-favorite series, Only murders in the building. It was shocking for the fans, that Selena wasn’t nominated for the lead actress in a comedy series role, even though her co-stars got lead Actor Nomination for the series.

The executive producer of the show opened up about Selena not being Emmy Nominated, he says ” Our trio is the heart of everything and the reason for the success of this show. They made all of that happen together, the three of them, with Selena being an essential part of that.”

He further added saying that everyone is feeling bad for her being snubbed but every nomination of the series is hers, ” Nominations are tricky, and you never know who is going to be included. It can feel unfair at times like on a day like today where we’re all so celebrated, but I’m so proud of her.”
