The comedy legend Steve Martin is as frustrated as everybody else that his co-star from Only Murders in the Building, Selena Gomez got snubbed at the Emmys. The series is starring Steve Martin alongside Selena Gomez. Martin Short has earned a slew of Emmy nominations. The two have snagged nominations for their acting performances at the Emmys.
Nathan Lane and Jane Lynch were also nominated for their guest role in the series. The third season of the series is renewed on Hulu recently. The series is the streamer’s most-watched original series.
A little about Only Murders in the Building
The show, Only Murders in the Building centers on a trio of three people, who are not exactly of the same nature. The trio consists of Steve Martin, Selena Gomez, and Martin Short. They come together to start a podcast on the subject: A suspicious death in their apartment building.
What did Steve Martin say to the interviewers?
When Steve Martin got asked about how he was feeling about getting nominated for their performances at the Emmys, he said:
“We’re very happy we got a lot of nominations, we’re a little dismayed that Selena Gomez didn’t get nominated because she’s so crucial to the trio, to the show. She kind of balances us. In fact, in some ways, you can say that we got nominated because of her balance in the show. But we’re happy that she is nominated as executive producer on the show. She’s a big asset for us.”
Craig Erwich, the President of Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment said that “Only Murders in the Building is the true crown jewel of our slate, its appeal across generations, the intersection of humor and heart, and its truly original approach are a hallmark of and testament to Dan, John, Steve, Marty and Selena’s work. We are grateful to be able to continue telling the stories of Charles, Oliver, and Mabel to viewers that have consistently shown us they crave more of this story.”
In season 2 of Only Murders in the Building, which began streaming on June 28th, the trio starts looking into the murder of Bunny played by Jayne Houdyshell, who was the Arconia’s tough-as-nails board president, and she was found dead in Mabel’s apartment, played by Selena Gomez.
New episodes of Only Murders in the Building season 2 are streaming on Tuesdays on Hulu.
