Courteney Cox is airing some grievances about her time on “Friends,” and why she’s ‘hurt’ that all her co-stars got this treatment except her!
It seems 2021 has been the gift that keeps on giving.
Not only was the original cast of “Friends” reunited in the same place for the first time in 17 years, but the reunion special, “Friends: The Reunion” also gave fanatics a look at never-before seen footage, secrets from set and a good chunk of outtakes.
Who doesn’t love a good outtake?!?

While the OG cast comprised of Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Cox, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, and Matt LeBlanc are still very much the BEST OF FRIENDS, there is a grudge Cox still holds to this day regarding the show.
During a recent interview with Howard Stern on “The Howard Stern Show” on Sirius XM, the ladies of the hit ‘90s sitcom got together in-studio.
Cox, Aniston and Kudrow recently appeared on the show and Cox, who played Monica Gellar on the show, revealed that she is very ‘hurt’ she was never nominated for an Emmy.
To put it in perspective, all of her co-stars were nominated for an Emmy during their time on the show. Cox is the only cast member to not have been nominated for an Emmy for “Friends.”
Friends In Flight!
Aniston, who portrayed Rachel Green, was nominated and won the Emmy for ‘Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy’ in 2002.
Kudrow played the eccentric role of Phoebe Buffay and took home the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy in 1998.
Cox’s male counterparts all received Emmy nominations as well.
Cox told Stern, “It always hurt my feelings … when every single cast member was nominated but me, it definitely hurt my feelings.”
Of course, Cox was elated for her co-stars when they were nominated and became winners, but it still didn’t take the pain away.
“I was happy for everybody, and then when it was finally like, ‘Oh, I’m the only one?,’ it hurt,” she said.
But Cox wouldn’t go too long without taking home some gold. She was nominated for a Golden Globe in 2010 for her role as the “head mistress of the Cul-de-sac Crew” on “Cougar Town.”
The “Friends” star went on to say, “The only thing that made me feel good — because they’ve all won and they’ve gotten so many accolades — I got nominated for ‘Cougar Town’ the first year — a Golden Globe. And I want to say, ‘Oh, who cares?’ But it meant everything to me.”
Cox admitted this nomination finally felt like Hollywood was recognizing her for her comedic acting talents.
“I wanted my peers to respect me and I know that the Golden Globes is not your peers, necessarily, but it’s like, ‘Ah!’ It took a little of the sting out,” the “Ace Ventura” actress said.
As she mentioned previously, she is always rooting for her friends and co-stars to win, but noted that it would be nice when she is acting alongside them, she gets some recognition as well.
