Carrie Coon Says She’s “Heartbroken” Over The Leftovers’s Emmy Snubs

Sure, every Emmy or Oscar nomination morning brings surprises and snubs—beautifully-crafted performances brutally unrecognized by voters. But Carrie Coon’s absence in the 2017 Lead Actress, Drama category—is not just egregious. As Esquire wrote Wednesday after the nominations were announced, the snub is “fucking criminal”—a conclusion echoed by mobs of (rightly) angry fans of The Leftovers, whose flurry of frustrations quickly rocketed Coon to trending status on Twitter Wednesday morning.

Although Coon was nominated in the Lead Actress, Limited Series category for her work on Fargo, the snub seemed savage considering the actress turned in one of the most staggering, gut-wrenching performances on any medium of late during the show’s third and final season as Nora Durst, a woman left gutted after losing her children and husband in a mysterious event that made 2 percent of the population disappear. (For more on Nora, read Joanna Robinson’s Anatomy of the Character.) Coon’s brave performance in the drama’s beautiful finale “The Book of Nora,” which showed Nora at her most vulnerable, seemed worthy of an Emmy statuette. That it didn’t even get a nomination, though? Well, hasn’t Coon been through enough with this character?!

On Wednesday, during a phone call with Vanity Fair, Coon revealed that she was disappointed with the morning’s nominations—not because of her snub per se—but because The Leftovers’s third and final season was mostly overlooked, aside from a Guest Actress nomination for Ann Dowd.

“I am incredibly proud of the show, obviously,” Coon said, echoing her official statement issued this morning. “I think it is really bold and brave and I think history will be very kind to The Leftovers. I think it is going to enter the pantheon of great TV drama.”

“As wonderful as it was to be nominated for Fargo, I can’t deny that I was really heartbroken over the lack of attention for The Leftovers—for Damon, for Justin,” Coon continued, referencing series creator Damon Lindelof, who wrote or co-wrote seven of the last season’s eight episodes, and co-star Justin Theroux. It was great to see Ann Dowd finally get the recognition she deserves for being so brave in everything that she does. But I was surprised.”

Did the actress realize she was trending on Twitter shortly after the nominations were announced?

“No, I didn’t,” Coon said, bursting into laughter. “It must have been angry Leftovers fans. . . was it? I have never trended on Twitter before!”

“I am grateful for the outrage, because it is not something I can express—it would be ungracious for me to walk around like an open wound today when I have such amazing things happening in my life,” Coon said. “But I can’t say I wasn’t surprised. I am just really heartbroken for Damon and Justin.”

Asked whether she has spoken with her Leftovers family today, Coon said, “I texted with Damon pretty immediately [after the announcement]. And I plan to reach out to Justin. But frankly, I was on the phone since the moment it was announced—with my best friend, my mom, then my agents, then the P.R. firm., and then I actually had a meeting with a playwright and a director, now I’m talking to you.”

“After this, I’m going to return all of the texts and emails,” Coon said. “I am going to call Justin, [co-star] Amy Brenneman, Ann Dowd, hopefully have time to touch base with those people, because we really thought there might be a chance that we’d get a little recognition. It just didn’t go that way.”
