It's Primetime Emmy season again which always means celebrating the performances of past students!

Jennifer Coolidge (Class of 1982)

Coolidge is once again nominated for her fan-favorite role of Tanya McQuoid in HBO’s The White Lotus. Coolidge is hoping luck will strike two years in a row as she won last year for season one of the show. Season two of The White Lotus has been nominated for twenty-two Emmys including “Best Drama Series.” Last year the first season took home a whopping ten statutes.

Brett Goldstein (Specialized Training 2003)

The maybe, maybe not final season of Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso racked up nineteen nominations and, of course, Goldstein landed one for “Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” for his hilarious turn as Roy Kent. Brett has won two Emmys from the previous two seasons of Ted Lasso, will season three give him his third?

Jessica Chastain (Class of 1998)

No stranger to the awards circuit, Chastain secures her first Primetime Emmy nomination in the “Best Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or TV Movie” category for her transformation into country music icon Tammy Wynette. Showtime’s bio-series on the infamous relationship of country music superstars George Jones and Tammy Waynette, George & Tammy, has received three Emmy nominations. Chastain also received a Golden Globe nomination for her performance.

Other Mentions

In the “Best Animated Program” category both Bob’s Burgers, which features John Roberts (Class of 1991), and The Simpsons, which features Hank Azaria (Specialized Training 1980), are nominated. In the “Best Comedy Series” category Barry, featuring Michael Irby (Class of 1995), is nominated. In the “Best Television Movie” category Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, featuring Arturo Castro (Class of 2007) as Pablo Escobar, is nominated.
