From PopCulture: ‘Mom’ and Allison Janney Receive Big Emmy News Despite CBS Cancellation

Mom received three major nominations for the 2021 Emmy Awards this year following the CBS show’s cancellation. Mom ended back in May after Season 8 came to a close, and many fans and critics praised the show in hindsight. Now, the people behind the series — including co-star Allison Janney — are seeing that praise come to fruition.

Janney is nominated for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance on Mom this year, alongside Aidy Bryant for Shrill, Kaley Cuoco for The Flight Attendant, Tracee Ellis Ross for Black-ish and Jean Smart for Hacks. Mom is also nominated for Outstanding Directing For a Comedy Series for the episode “Scooby-Doo Checks and Salisbury Steak,” directed by James Widdoes.
