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.

Laura Harrier & Netflix's 'Hollywood' Cast Present First Look at Tastemaker Event!

Laverne Cox happily strikes a pose with Laura Harrier while supporting her at the special Tastemaker screening and reception for her upcoming series Hollywood held at San Vicente Bungalows on Sunday (February 23) in West Hollywood, Calif.

Laura, 29, was joined at the event by her co-stars Maude Apatow, Jake Picking, Dylan McDermott, Michelle Krusiec, David Corenswet, Jeremy Pope and Mira Sorvino, as well as co-creator and executive producer Ian Brennan.

Laverne, 47, was in attendance in support alongside Rumer Willis, Maude‘s father Judd Apatow, Harry Hamlin and his wife Lisa Rinna, Zelda Williams and Janet Mock, who introduced the first screening of Hollywood to the crowd.

Here’s a synopsis: “Hollywood follows a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers in post-World War II Hollywood as they try to make it in Tinseltown — no matter the cost. Each character offers a unique glimpse behind the gilded curtain of Hollywood’s Golden Age, spotlighting the unfair systems and biases across race, gender and sexuality that continue to this day. Provocative and incisive, Hollywood exposes and examines decades-old power dynamics, and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled.”

Ryan Murphy‘s new show Hollywood launches globally on Friday, May 1!

FYI: Maude wore a Bora Aksu outfit.

Julia Garner to Be Joined by Anna Chlumsky & More in Netflix's Anna Delvey Series

Julia Garner will officially take on the role of con artist Anna Delvey in the upcoming 10-episode limited series Inventing Anna, which marks Shonda Rhimes‘ new show for Netflix.

The 25-year-old Emmy-winning Ozark actress will be joined in the cast by Veep‘s Anna Chlumsky, Orange Is the New Black‘s Laverne Cox, Scandal‘s Katie Lowes, and The Bold Type‘s Alexis Floyd.

Here is the official synopsis via Netflix: “In Inventing Anna, a journalist (Chlumsky) with a lot to prove investigates the case of Anna Delvey (Garner), the Instagram-legendary German heiress who stole the hearts of New York’s social scene — and stole their money as well. But is Anna New York’s biggest con woman or is she simply the new portrait of the American dream? Anna and the reporter form a dark funny love-hate bond as Anna awaits trial and our reporter fights the clock to answer the biggest question in NYC: who is Anna Delvey?”

Julia‘s character is “described as a young woman in her mid-20s with a hard to place European accent who takes New York by storm. Either a brilliant businesswoman or a scammer extraordinaire, Anna in turn inspires loyalty, compassion, contempt, and obsession – all while leaving behind an emotional body count,” according to THR.
