‘Transparent’ Star Kathryn Hahn on Show’s Comedy-Series Emmy Snub: ‘For Sure’ a Surprise

“It’s such a crowded field,” actress tells TheWrap

Kathryn Hahn is now an Emmy nominee.

The actress picked up her first nod on Thursday, landing in the comedy supporting-actress category for her role as Rabbi Raquel Fein on Amazon’s “Transparent.”

“I’m still processing, but it’s so crazy — so crazy exciting,” Hahn told TheWrap. “Really, truly unexpected, and my mind is boggling. I’m sharing it with that entire amazing ensemble — those people are unbelievable, and that cast lifts each other up.”

The show landed three nominations in total, including recognition for Jeffrey Tambor and Judith Light.

But many pundits had also expected the Jill Soloway-created series to pick up a nomination for best comedy, as it has for its first two seasons. Alas, it was left out of the category this time around, marking one of the year’s most notable snubs.

Does the omission come as a surprise for Hahn? “Yes, for sure,” replied the actress, who also stars in Amazon’s “I Love Dick,” which was co-created by Soloway. Hahn added that “Transparent” would have received a comedy-series nod “in an ideal world.”

“I love that family so madly,” she said of the show’s team. “I’m just so proud of everything that we’ve been doing. We are so lucky though to be living in a time when it’s such a crowded field with such unbelievable talent and such quality all over the place. The women that are working and making art is so inspiring to me.”
