Leslie Jones Tried To Tell Laverne Cox She Was Nominated For An Emmy, But It Didn't Go As Planned

Leslie Jones hosted the virtual announcement for the 2020 Emmy Award Nominations this morning, with Laverne Cox, Josh Gad, Tatiana Maslany and Television Academy CEO Frank Scherma joining her by Zoom calls.

However, when the 52-year-old actress and comedian tried to reveal to Laverne that she was nominated for an Emmy, it didn’t go over as planned.

As Leslie tries to announce it, she gets a little confused on what Laverne is actually nominated for. First, she mentioned Best Drama Series, before then saying Best Actress, then to Guest Actress.

“I was supposed to do that way smoother,” Leslie told Laverne afterwards, and Laverne was still confused about the announcement.

Laverne picked up a nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her role in Orange is the New Black.
