Rihanna’s ‘SNL’ Skit Earns Emmy Nod

Rihanna and Shy Ronnie

Rihanna has appeared at the Grammys, MTV Video Music Awards, and American Music Awards, but she finds herself in new company. An “SNL” skit in which she starred has been nominated for an Emmy.

The “Shy Ronnie” digital short, in which she plays herself alongside comedian Andy Samberg, received a nod for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics at the 62nd Annual Emmy Awards. Only the song’s writers and producers receive the nomination. The winner will be announced August 29.

The sketch became a viral sensation after it aired on “Saturday Night Live” in December. If you haven’t seen it already, watch it below.

    it would be PHENOMENAL if riri gets a nomination then wins…but i doubt dat she wrote anything in the song…but still she was apart of a emmy nomination song no less so i guess its appropriate to say:

    “that rihanna reign just won’t let up”
