Betty Gilpin on Her First 'Glow' Emmy Nomination: 'Never Thought This Was Gonna Happen'

Betty Gilpin made her debut appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (August 1) and dished about scoring her very first Emmy nomination for her role in Netflix’s GLOW!

“I’m so excited that this is happening, this was not on my bran dream radar at all,” the 32-year-old actress revealed. “Yeah, no. I feel like I have a healthy sense of insecurity with a little healthy sprinkle of self-loathing. You set the bar healthily low. I just never ever thought that this was gonna happen.”

Betty also talked about having a “healthy sense of realism” about the roles she gets offered, that while things are changing, “it’s still like men get to be three-dimensional, sexy forever farting geniuses.”

Betty pointed out a lot of her roles were not of the three-dimensional, farting genius type. “I played a lot of either, like, you know, sobbing boobs or sobbing laundry basket,” she said – Watch the full interview below!

    Haven’t seen Glow yet, but I have seen her in Nurse Jackie… She has a way of expressing things during her interviews which is rare. She is poised and awkwardly thoughtful.
    I reckon, its about time to watch GLOW!!!

    Just watched it, and her nomination is well deserved. the characters are all pretty well-rounded, they get to be sweet and mean and thoughtless and angry and basically real human beings. BG comes across as very thoughtful and intelligent in her interviews and she wrote a great article on growing up insecure when she went from being the ‘ugly duckling’ to suddeny having these huge boobs and being desired by men, but still only about 12 and wanting to hide and feeling so deeply unsure of herself and her body. she has a real way with words

    I’ll find that article and read, I reckon, she has way of words very few in today’s world.
