Selena Gomez Lands Her First Emmy Nomination For 'Only Murders In The Building'

Gomez is now the second Latina woman ever to be nominated for a producing Emmy for a comedy series.

Selena Gomez can finally add “Emmy-nominated” to her résumé.

The singer scored her first Emmy nomination on Tuesday for her involvement in Hulu’s hit show “Only Murders in the Building.” Gomez plays Mabel Mora on the series, starring opposite Steve Martin and Martin Short.

Gomez received a historic nod when “OMITB” was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series, as she is an executive producer on the show.

This makes Gomez just the second ever Latina woman to land a producing nomination for a comedy series, according to Variety. She follows Salma Hayek, an executive producer for “Ugly Betty,” which was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2007.

The singer was shut out of the Emmys’ Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy category. Only two Latina woman have ever been nominated in that category: Rita Moreno, for “9 to 5,” and America Ferrera, for “Ugly Betty” (which she won in 2007).

Gomez began her career on the children’s TV program “Barney” in 2003 and shot to stardom during her time on Disney’s “Wizards of Waverly Place,” which ran from 2007 to 2012.

The actor, singer and Rare Beauty creator will find out whether she wins at the 74th Emmy Awards, which are set to air live on Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
