I'm in exceptional company at least: Julia Roberts jokes off her Emmy Awards nomination snub


Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts is not fretting over being overlooked at the Emmy nominations this year for her role in the series Homecoming. Rather, she has laughed it off.

"Well, I'm in exceptional company at least," the actress wrote on Instagram while sharing a screenshot of a news alert that read, "Biggest Emmy nomination snubs: Julia Roberts, George Clooney and Emma Stone are among the A-listers shut out", highlighting the fact that she was not the only big star to have missed a nomination this year.

It was being expected that the 51-year-old actress will get an Emmy nod for her portrayal of Heidi Bergman, a caseworker who helps US soldiers transition back to civilian life, on the Amazon Prime show. She was nominated for an Emmy in 2014, for the mini-series The Normal Heart, and in 1999 for her guest role on Law & Order.

Julia missed out in the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category, which this year has nominations for Emilia Clarke in Game Of Thrones, Viola Davis in How To Get Away with Murder, Sandra Oh in Killing Eve, Jodie Comer in Killing Eve, Laura Linney in Ozark, Mandy Moore in This Is Us and Robin Wright in House Of Cards.
