Britton is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Rayna James on Nashville.
Every single time I’ve ever been nominated it’s always felt like a surprise. I never, ever take it for granted. I’m just always so thrilled. And every nomination is different. Nashville was a big risk for me, it was scary in a lot of ways to be taking on the singing and all of that. So I just feel stunned and grateful to the Academy. I also feel like I’m representing all of my peeps here at the show. Everybody has worked so hard.
