Applegate is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Samantha Newly on Samantha Who?
This year’s nomination means more to me than ever before. I’m incredibly happy and honored. Certainly it’s bittersweet—we no longer get to do the show that we love so much, but that doesn’t take away from the excitement and honor of this nomination. This is a wonderful recognition of what we created together every week.
