This is big news for Maya Rudolph.
After six nominations spanning eight years, the Big Mouth star has clinched her first Emmy Award win. For her performance in the animated sitcom, the actress and comedian was victorious in the Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance category during the fourth remote night of the Creative Arts Emmys on Thursday, Sept. 17.
The star commemorated her first win on social media with a celebratory happy selfie. “I WON AN EMMY!” she wrote on top. The star also playfully mouthed over audio of what sounded like a kid talking about their Emmy win.
“Thank you to all of those in the Academy for letting me win this Emmy,” she mouthed. “I’m so grateful because I never won an Emmy before. It’s a very wonderful feeling. I think that it will be better if I won more Emmys.
Rudolph was first nominated for an Emmy in 2012 for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series on Saturday Night Live, which she was nominated for again in 2020. She has also been nominated three times for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her performances on The Good Place.
