Courteney Cox: 'I was hurt by Emmy Snub'

  Courteney Cox has confessed to TV Line that she really wishes to be nominated for an Emmy.

  The Cougar Town actress reveals she had a hard time back in the day when Friends aired because she was the only star on the show who never got a nomination for her acting:

 "When the first person was nominated for an Emmy, I think it was Schwimmer, you're so excited. Then the second person, so excited. The only time I was like 'Whoa!' was [when Aniston and Kudrow were both nominated] and not me. I had a hard time not taking it personally when it was both Lisa and Jennifer at the same time. One guy, one girl, whatever. But both girls and not me? It hurt. I'm very sensitive, though."

 The Scream actress admits having a hard time when dealing with nominations and awards and caring too much about it:

 "God, it would be such an honour. I'd be so excited. I'd probably be one of those people who just cried. I wish I could say I didn't care about stuff like that. Maybe if I didn't, it would be some kind of karmic thing for me, but I actually do. I think it's nice to be recognised. [Not being nominated] makes me go, 'Oh s**t, maybe I don't know what the f**k I'm doing'."

 Cox still wishes to make amends with the Emmys by hoping to be nominated for her comedy show, Cougar Town and goes as far as saying it would mean even more to her now than when she was on the NBC sitcom:

 "Don't get me wrong, it would have been great back then," she explains. "But I think it would mean that I'm on another show that is regarded and is written and performed as well as [Friends] in some way."

 What do you guys think? Is Courteney deserving of some Emmy love?
