She received four nominations and two Emmys as outstanding lead actress in a drama series for her role in the remainder of the shows run.

Janney became the third performer to win two Emmys for different roles in the same year in 2014 for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series for her portrayal of a recovering alcoholic with an adult daughter, and outstanding guest actress on a drama series for Showtime’s “Masters of Sex.”

She won a second Emmy for her work on “Mom” in 2015 and was nominated again for “Masters of Sex.”
