Gilmore Girls finally has its Emmy nod! Well, in an unconventional way. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will compete in the Best Limited Series category for this year’s Emmy nomination, competing against shows such as Big Little Lies, Feud, and American Crime.
Lauren Graham announced the great news by sending members of the press some pastries postmarked from the Dragonfly Inn with a special note, as below:
Greetings from Stars Hollow!
With Emmy voting just around the corner, we are sure that you will be catching up on a lot of television, including the four 90-minute chapters of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” on Netflix — which is officially in the race for Outstanding Limited Series! Rory and I find nothing goes better with couch time than some fresh baked treats straight from Sookie’s kitchen.
As for whether this Emmy Award nomination puts more pressure for a repeat series? Both Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham are leaving themselves open, but only if it’s the right thing to do.
“What can we do that is satisfying, and worth continuing, and gratifying to the people who care so much about it?” said Graham, 50. “I don’t know if there is a need to do more. I would never want it to feel like we overstayed our welcome.”
“There’s probably a way to keep these characters alive, but I don’t know if that’s the best thing for them,” she added.
Bledel shared that her decision would weigh heavily on what the Palladinos have in mind for Rory: “I’m just interested in telling a story that is dynamic and that I sort of relate to and can hook into. And if that happens … I don’t know.”
Maybe if the re-revival gave us back a stronger Rory?!
