Elle Fanning Reacts to Her First Emmy Nomination, Lead Actress For 'The Great'

Elle Fanning has earned her first Emmy Award nomination at the upcoming 2022 Emmys!

The 24-year-old actress picked up the nom for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for portraying Catherine in Hulu’s The Great.

Her co-star Nicholas Hoult also received his first nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, and he was actually the one who told her about her nomination!

Find out how she reacted inside…

“I can’t put into words what ‘The Great’ means to me. To be recognized for playing Catherine, a character who has shaped me personally in so many ways, is a moment I will never forget. And Jean, Quinta, Rachel, Kaley, and Issa, sharing this nomination with you makes it all the more meaningful,” Elle shared on Instagram.

“We are on set filming season 3 right now and my partner in comedy, Nicholas Hoult broke the news to me with the crew and my fellow cast mates by my side. Wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!” she continued. “Getting to celebrate alongside him, Fran di Mottola, the magician production designer who builds our transportive sets, and Sharon Long, our costume designer who adorns us in her glorious creations is truly special. But it all would be meaningless without Tony McNamara’s vision. His words and imagination are what bring us to work every day and push us to ‘greate’ heights. HUZZAH ! Thank you to the television academy for this unbelievable honor!”

The Great also earned nominations this year for Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Period or Fantasy Program and Outstanding Period Costumes.

Congratulations to all Elle, Nicholas and all the nominees!

The 2022 Emmys will take place on September 12th.
