There was no lack of surprises (good and bad) when it comes to the list of nominees for the Emmy 2022. the absence of Selena Gomez in the list released this Tuesday (12), was the most regretted – and not for less, right?
Despite the name of Mabel’s interpreter in Only Murders in the Building not appearing on the list for Best Actress in a Comedy Series, the star secured another category at the awards: she is on the team of executive producers of the series, who can take home the award for the category of Best Comedy Series.
The inclusion of Selena in the production team brings a historic milestone: this is the second time that a Latina has been among the producers nominated for a comedy series in the 74-year history of the Emmys. So it is.
According to Varietythe first was Salma Hayek for Ugly Betty from Fox in 2007. The magazine also recalls that only one Latina woman has won as a producer in any of the major series categories in history. In 2004, Celia D. Costas took the award for Angels in America.
Selena was quoted for her performance in the Hulu series, including critical support. But she ended up being left out of the list, taking the place of the so-called “snubbed” in the awards. The series is nominated for Best Comedy and had the other two protagonists nominated for Best Actor in a Comedy Series, Martin Short and Steve Martin.
As soon as it was released, the fans of the actress and singer passed on the news on social networks – and her name “Selena”, was among the most commented on Twitter this afternoon.

Some people even talked about discrimination. That’s because Selena’s origin is Latin.
about the emmy nominations i liked it, but she deserved more and you can say that selena gomez is not latina here, but there they consider her so much that they even made a point of putting her in one category and even as a producer to pretend they didn’t discriminate against her.

At the same time, they recalled that the actress can take a statuette – even if indirectly – as an executive producer, as the series is running for Best Comedy Series.

But it wasn’t just Selena who was among the “snubbed” in the Best Actress category. Even Jennifer Aniston, the eternal Rachel from Friends, was left out. She plays Alex Levy on “The Morning Show” (Apple TV), was not nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series. In her place, her series colleague Reese Witherspoon entered.
