Omission of Reese Witherspoon’s name from the acting nominations led to a figurative gasp among the community. But wait–it’s not all bad because Reese is an executive producer on all three, which means she will receive Emmy’s should any of the shows win in general categories. PHEW!
The bubbly star seemed unfazed on Twitter. “What an incredible honor!” she posted on Tuesday. “I’m so proud of our team who works tirelessly behind the scenes to bring these stories to life! BRAVO to the cast & crews.”
