Reese Witherspoon is an Oscar winner and a Golden Globe winner, having won both awards for her performance in Walk The Line. Until now, though, she’s never been nominated for an Emmy. (Blame it on her success in movies — she hasn’t had the time for many television projects over the years!) She’s got a chance to win two this year for her HBO series Big Little Lies: as the show’s producer, she can win a Outstanding Limited Series statue, and as a star of the show, she’s nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie. Those are just two of the 14 nominations the show received, though, and an excited Witherspoon can’t wait for Emmy night!
Will Reese Witherspoon and Big Little Lies be big winners at the Emmys? We’ll find out on Sunday, September 17, when Stephen Colbert hosts the awards show on CBS. In the meantime you can watch Reese in her new movie Home Again which opens in theaters this Friday.
