"No, I will not be going," she told Kimmel, after noting that it's the reunion, not her specifically who's nominated. "I think Ben Winston, our producer and director, [who's] incredible, who put the whole thing together [will go]."
"This is a big step for me to just be here," Aniston added of appearing on the late-night show as one of her first major post-quarantine outings. "I'm just [taking] baby steps."
Friends: The Reunion debuted on HBO Max in May, and earned Emmy nominations for Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded), Outstanding Production Design For A Variety Special, Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special, and Outstanding Lighting Design/Lighting Direction For A Variety Special.
At the time of the nominations in July, Aniston reacted to the news on her Instagram Story by sharing a pic from the set of the reunion.
"Congrats to my @friends family on FOUR Emmy nominations," she wrote. "This was such a special reunion for us and we couldn't be happier to share it all with you."
Aniston also shared an "extra extra special thanks" to the Emmy-nominated director of the reunion, Ben Winston, who "made it all happen."
"You're brilliant and WE LOVE YOU!" the actress gushed.
