Emmy presenter Selena Gomez, star of the three-time-nominated series Only Murders in the Building, gave an award season look worthy of the stage this evening in Los Angeles. The actress stepped out at tonight's Emmys in a white sequin halter dress. She accessorized minimally with green tassel earrings.
Gomez was not nominated in the lead actress in a comedy category tonight, while her costars Steve Martin and Martin Short were in the lead actor in a comedy category. The series is nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series.
Martin and Short discussed how disappointed they were by her exclusion in an interview with Variety when nominations were announced.
Martin told Variety, “We’re very happy we got a lot of nominations. We’re a little dismayed that Selena [Gomez] didn’t get nominated because she’s so crucial to the trio, to the show. She kind of balances us. In fact, in some ways you can say that we got nominated because of her balance in the show. But we’re happy that she is nominated as executive producer on the show. She’s a big asset for us.”
He and Short added that they hadn't spoken with her since nominations came out. “I think I keep seeing her tweeting from Europe,” Martin said.
“I think she’s in Europe,” Short agreed.
“And you know, the communication is so slow, I think it takes five days to get a letter there,” Martin quipped.
