Martin Short said, ” She is nominated as an executive producer.” Not just the actors of the fan-favorite series but also executive producer John Hoffman shared his thoughts as well about the same.

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.”
