The Netflix original series GLOW received three Emmy Award
nominations today, a fantastic achievement for a new show.
GLOW got the nod in the Outstanding Comedy Series category
while Betty Gilpin, who plays Liberty Belle in the show, got
the nomination in the Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
Jesse Peretz got nominated in the Directing for a Comedy
Series category for the GLOW pilot.
In a tweet, Gilpin was over the moon with the unexpected
nomination. Greetings from a shock and denial paralysis on
my living room floor. Thank you to the Television Academy
for making me throw my phone across the room as if it was
made of lava needles, she tweeted.
I am so overwhelmed and grateful to be a part of a show
where women are allowed to be their weirdest, loudest,
bravest selves. Ill probably self-sabotage in a bold and
creative way before the ceremony, so I hope everyone has a
lovely autumn. Thank you, thank you, thank you. What. Is.
Happening, she continued.
Congratulations to the whole cast and crew!
