Nomination

Janney is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Bonnie Plunkett on Mom.

…the nomination for Mom I share with Anna Faris because we’re a team. Any recognition for my work is recognition for her as well. Congratulations are also in order for the wonderful Chuck Lorre. I definitely have a spring in my step this morning!
