Lisa is nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category for playing Valerie Cherish in HBO's The Comeback, and LeBlanc is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for playing Matt LeBlanc in Showtime's Episodes. It was actually LeBlanc who broke the news to Kudrow!

Both actors rose to fame playing Phoebe Buffay and Joey Tribbiani on NBC's Friends (1994-2004)


Lisa Kudrow has gone on to star in two cable series, Web Therapy (Showtime) and The Comeback (HBO) as well as guest star on numerous TV Shows (Cougar Town, Scandal, American Dad). She has been nominated for a Golden Globe, 10 Emmys (1 win), a Critics Choice TV Award and 12 SAG Awards (winning 2). Matt LeBlanc took a break from acting after appearing in the Friends spin-off, Joey (NBC) and made his TV comeback in Episodes (Showtime). He has been nominated for 5 Golden Globes (1 win), 7 Emmys, 8 SAG Awards (1 win) and a Television Critcs Association Award.

And while a lot of the attention is on the roles they're nominated for 11 years after the Friends finale aired, some people still can't get over the fact that they're Phoebe and Joey.

1. People are really happy.

3. And Elaine- I mean Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

I love that Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are all nominated for Emmys, because apparently it's 1996.

4. This girl knows whats up.

Insert "Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are all nominated for Emmys--the 90s are back" joke here.

5. As does this tweeter.

Both Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow got Emmy nominations. Friends cast representing #emmys

6. Some shade thrown at Ross... you know because ROSS.

So Joey Tribbiani and Phoebe Buffay both received #Emmy nominations.... at least Ross didn't.... you know because ROSS.

7. Chances are they will, my friend.

14. "Joey and Phoebe"

Who'd have thought Joey and Phoebe would have been the ones competing for leading comedy Emmys 10 years after the end of Friends?

15. She asks a good question.

Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc nominated for emmys in 2015. Who keeps saying FRIENDS stars aren't talented?

16. Some more confusion as to what decade we're in.

Matt Leblanc, Lisa Kudrow nominated for best comedic actor/actress... apparently I have awoken in the year 1998... #emmys
