'Roseanne' scores two Emmy nominations, despite controversy

(CNN)"Roseanne" may get the last laugh.

The comedy series, which was canceled in May by ABC after star Roseanne Barr's much-publicized racist Twitter rant, scored two Emmy nominations on Thursday, though not in the much-coveted overall series category.
Laurie Metcalf was the sole cast member to be nominated for her role as Roseanne's sister, Jackie Harris.
She will compete against Zazie Beetz ("Atlanta"), Alex Borstein ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"), Aidy Bryant ("Saturday Night Live"), Betty Gilpin ("GLOW"), Leslie Jones ("Saturday Night Live"), Kate McKinnon ("Saturday Night Live"), and Megan Mullally ("Will and Grace").
