While Nicole is no stranger to the Emmys, as she’s been nominated twice previously for her Netflix series Nailed It!, this year’s ceremony could be her biggest one yet. She’s competing in a whopping three categories; one for her variety special Nicole Byer: BBW (Big Beautiful Weirdo) and two for Nailed It!. Nicole was first nominated for the Netflix baking show in 2020, becoming the first Black woman to ever earn a nod in the Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program. With Laverne, Nicole will unpack the difficulties she’s faced over the years, as well as her desire to not just win awards, but encourage people to think outside of the box, too.
Interested in hearing the Emmy nominees dish on other subjects? You’re in luck, because as Laverne puts it in the above sneak peek, “I love getting in people’s business.”
