“Friday Night Lights'” Connie Britton says Emmy nomination “feels like a gift”
HollywoodNews.com: “Friday Night Lights” is one of the best underrated shows on television that never gets enough credit. However, Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler have a lot to celebrate after both being nominated for Emmys.
Britton said, “I’m so grateful. It really feels like a gift. We’re about to wrap the show after 5 seasons, so this is especially wonderful and so unexpected. And I’m thrilled for my TV husband, Kyle too… It really feels like an acknowledgment of the show.”
Executive Producer, Jason Katims, added, “I am thrilled for Connie and Kyle. I will admit I had to read the email several times before I believed it. Kyle and Connie have both created once in a lifetime nuanced, complex and compelling characters — it is no small thrill for myself that after four years not one but both have been recognized. I am also thrilled that Rolin Jones has been recognized for his beautiful script “The Son”, an uniquely powerful episode of television. And, to Linda Lowy and our incredible casting agents who have been recognized yet again for all they bring to the show.”
