Selena Gomez is on a roll! After surpassing 400 million followers on Instagram, she has now snagged another Emmy nomination. Selena Gomez’s cooking show ‘Selena + Chef’ received a 2023 Daytime Emmy nomination for outstanding culinary series. She is up against Andrew Zimmern’s ‘Family Dinner’, Martha Stewart’s ‘Martha Cooks, Jose Andres and Family in Spain’, and ‘Roadfood: Discovering America One Dish at a Time’. The winners of the award show will be announced during the 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in June.
In the current season of ‘Selena + Chef’, she learned cooking from various all-star chefs at a Malibu beach house. Like previous seasons, all the chefs who were featured, highlighted a different charity to benefit, and the program has raised $400,000 for 26 non-profit organizations so far. This is her second Emmy nomination after being nominated as an executive producer for ‘Only Murders in the Building’, which was up for best comedy series. While she was not nominated for her portrayal of Mabel Mora, her co-stars Steve Martin and Martin Short were nominated for the best actor in a comedy series for their roles on the show.
The entire cast was disappointed by Gomez’s snub. “Marty and I, and the whole team at ‘Only Murders in the Building,’ are thrilled with our nominations,” Martin said. “We’re also loving that our crucial partner Selena Gomez is recognized as a producer in the Best Comedy Series category.” He added, “We’re dismayed that Selena was not nominated because she’s so crucial to our performances, really.”
