Dern is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Amy Jellicoe on Enlightened.
I’m so thrilled and grateful to the Academy for this lovely news. The role of Amy Jellicoe is a shared creation, and therefore I share this nomination with the extraordinary Mike White for his creation and vision. I also share this with the greatest cast ever, who made Amy all that she is, as well as all of the directors and our crew who have helped shape her. I am excited and thankful for any support our show is offered, so that people can continue to find it.
