Jenna Ortega bloomed like a floral goddess as she strutted her stuff at the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards on a Monday that was clearly confused about being January 15th. The Peacock Theater in Los Angeles had never seen such a dazzling display of petals in winter.
Our 21-year-old sensation, Jenna, is not just turning heads; she’s snagged her first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Why, you ask? Well, because she’s the brain, the brawn, and the beauty behind the quirky character in Netflix’s smash hit series, Wednesday!
Joining her on the carpet were the delightful Joy Sunday and the mastermind himself, Tim Burton. Yes, the man who made us all question whether we were normal or just living in one of his surreal dreamscapes. And hey, he brought along Monica Bellucci, because why not add a dash of Italian elegance to the mix?
Now, brace yourselves for the plot twist of the century: This is the 2023 Emmy Awards show, happening in 2024! Hollywood decided to be fashionably late due to some labor disputes, and suddenly, Monday became the new Sunday. It’s like the Emmys pulled a time-traveling stunt, but instead of meeting dinosaurs, they bumped into Jenna Ortega wearing head-to-toe Dior.
And just when you thought things couldn’t get any wackier, the show is not just about Jenna’s shiny nomination; it’s also in the running for Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series. Tim Burton directed an episode titled, “Wednesday’s Child is Full of Woe.” I mean, isn’t every day of the week full of woe?
So, get ready for a night of laughs, glamour, and unexpected calendar acrobatics as the Emmys air live on Fox, hosted by the one and only Anthony Anderson. Let’s see if Monday can outshine Sunday in the Emmy history books!
