Christina Applegate Speaks Out About Her Emmy Nomination Amid MS Journey Parade
The article discusses Christina Applegate’s emotional moment at the 75th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, held on January 15, 2024. Applegate, who publicly disclosed her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in 2021, received a standing ovation from the audience as she walked onstage to present awards. Despite her visible emotion, the actress managed to inject humor into the situation, joking about the audience shaming her disability by standing up. She also playfully referenced the weight loss drug Ozempic and humorously mentioned her iconic TV character, Kelly Bundy, from “Married with Children.”
The article highlights Applegate’s ad-libbed comment about crying more than usual while reminiscing about her first onscreen appearance in 1972. Despite previously indicating that the 2023 Screen Actors Guild Awards would be her last as an actor, she stood as a nominee for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series for her role in “Dead to Me.” Applegate shared in May that she doesn’t expect to continue working as an actor after the show’s third season, citing a lack of desire for early mornings and long hours on set.
