Laurie Metcalf emerges from the ashes of 'Roseanne' with an Emmy nominationJuly 12, 2018 7:46pm

July 12-- Some actresses are as good as gold, but Laurie Metcalf is something even better. She's good as Teflon.

The decorated actress, who has taken home two Tony Awards and an Oscar nomination in the past two years, just earned another feather in her cap-this one maybe the most unlikely of all.

After the ABC revival of "Roseanne" was canceled in the wake of racist tweets by its eponymous star, Roseanne Barr, Emmy prospects looked grim for the cast members left behind.

But never count Metcalf out at the Emmys.

The actress earned a nomination for supporting actress in a comedy for her portrayal of Jackie Harris. Her nomination was one of only two for "Roseanne," which also earned a nod for multi-camera editing Thursday morning.

Metcalf's nomination was right in line with her previous Emmys recognition. During the original run of "Roseanne," Metcalf was nominated three times for her work as Harris and won all three times.

Can she keep her streak alive? Find out when the Emmys are handed out on Sept. 17.
