Despite the singer's burgeoning career in Hollywood and recent appearance at TIFF.

Taylor Swift is making moves to build a career in the acting world, appearing at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend to promote her “All Too Well” short film (which is also eligible for an Oscars nod) and taking on one of her biggest film roles yet in Amsterdam, which is out next month. But at TV's biggest event tonight, the Emmys, Swift was absent. The reason is simple: Swift has no nominations as she hasn't appeared in any TV series. While Swift's boyfriend Joe Alwyn was cast in Conversations With Friends, the Hulu series did not get any Emmy nods. (Alwyn, actually, was photographed at TIFF yesterday at the premiere of Catherine Called Birdy.)

Had Swift gone, she would've been able to support her longtime friend Selena Gomez, who is nominated as a producer for her work on Only Murders in the Building. Gomez is also presenting at the ceremony. And while Swift isn't at the Emmys ceremony itself tonight, her appearing at a future show is far from an impossibility.

Swift spoke at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend about her directing ambitions, though she focused her answer on the possibility of directing a feature film. “If it were the right thing, it would be such a privilege and honor,” Swift said during an In Conversation With… appearance, via The Hollywood Reporter.

She's not interested in doing action films. “I will always want to tell human stories about human emotion,” she said. “It’s really beautiful that we’re in a place where the idea of a female filmmaker doesn’t make you roll your eyes or think as skeptically as it once was.”

Swift added her directing career is one that has been built off baby steps. “I didn’t go to film school,” she said. “I’ve been on the set of around 60 music videos and I’ve learned a lot from that process. But when I did it on my own [for music video “The Man”], I really began to learn everything, because you have to.”
