The US actor played Monica Geller in all 10 series of Friends, during which time her character was at the centre of major plotlines including her secret relationship with (and, eventual marriage to) Chandler Bing, as well as the couple’s struggles to conceive a child.

“When every single cast member was nominated but me, it definitely hurt my feelings,” Courteney added. “I was happy for everybody, and then when it was finally like, ‘Oh, I’m the only one?’. It hurt.”
Meanwhile, Matt LeBlanc earned three nominations for his role as Joey Tribianni between 2002 and 2004.
