Gold Derby can exclusively reveal that Kaley Cuoco is entering “The Flight Attendant” episode “In Case of Emergency” as her 2021 Emmy Awards submission for Best Comedy Actress. This program aired November 26 and was the first episode of the first season for the HBO Max show.
In this installment, flight attendant Cassie (Cuoco) gets drunk and has sex with a stranger but finds him dead in bed next to her the following morning. She doesn’t want to be arrested, so she cleans up everything and leaves. She can’t remember much of what happened when questioned by the FBI.
This year marks her first and second career Emmy nominations (also for producing this time). For this 2021 contest, she is competing against Aidy Bryant (“Shrill”), Allison Janney (“Mom”), Tracee Ellis Ross (“black-ish”) and Jean Smart (“Hacks”).
