- Millie Bobby Brown said that thinking about her Emmy nominations made her “anxious.”
- Brown was nominated twice for an Emmy, both when she was a young teenager.
- She and her “Stranger Things” castmates were shut out of acting categories at the 2022 awards.
Millie Bobby Brown said that thinking about her two Emmy nominations for her work on “Stranger Things” gives her “anxiety.”
While participating in Wired’s signature autocomplete interview segment, Brown responded to the Google search “millie bobby brown emmy.”
“Ooh, well, this is… I don’t really know much about what this really means, but I definitely was nominated twice, at the ripe age of 12 and 14, I think?” Brown said. She was 13 years old when she was first nominated.
“Alrighty. That gives me anxiety,” Brown said.
Brown has been nominated for the outstanding supporting actress in a drama series award at the Emmys twice, in 2017 and 2018, for her role as Eleven in “Stranger Things.”
Brown was 12 years old when the first season of “Stranger Things” premiered in 2016, and her nominations followed the first and second seasons of the show, respectively. She did not win either award, but is among the youngest Emmy nominees of all time.
While the first part of “Stranger Things” season four, which premiered in May, was eligible for the 2022 Emmys, the show’s cast was completely locked out of nominations. “Stranger Things” earned 13 nominations that spanned multiple creative arts categories as well as outstanding drama series, but none of its actors, including Brown, were nominated.
