Jennifer Lopez: 'Emmy win would be the icing on the cake'

Jennifer Lopez dreams of adding an Emmy to her awards haul.

Her NBC show Shades of Blue, the police drama which she stars in alongside Ray Liotta, was recently renewed for a second season. The show will start filming in New York again soon.


And at a promotional event for the show, ahead of Emmy nomination voting which will begin Monday (13Jun16), the high-achieving entertainer, who is currently in the midst of a Las Vegas residency, All I Have, revealed she still has some goals to achieve, with winning an Emmy at the top of the list.


"It would be amazing,” Jennifer told Entertainment Tonight at the Shades of Blue For Your Consideration event in California, when asked about a potential nomination.


"The work that I do and being an artist for so many years, there’s always a goal when you’re a little girl, like, ‘I want to win an Oscar one day, or I want to win an Emmy, or a Grammy.’ But then I’ve been in the business so long, the reward is actually being able to do this for a living," Jennifer shared. "I really feel blessed... All that would just be icing on the cake if it happens."


For now, Jennifer is pleased that the gritty show has been renewed for a second season, even though it will already add to her busy workload.


"I’m super happy (about the renewal). I was like, ‘Oh great, that was really hard. I’ll do that again!'" the stunning 46-year-old actress-singer told Entertainment Tonight on Thursday (09Jun16).


"The show is so intense and the show does take a lot out of you. But, it was great and I’m glad everybody really liked it and is enjoying it," she added.


And as if juggling her Las Vegas residency and a hit TV show weren't enough, the mother of eight-year-old twins, Max and Emme, hasn't quite ruled out having more children.


"They’re so big and so amazing and happy,” Jennifer gushed. “I wish I could have a lot more (kids)," she added. "I wish. I don’t know if it’s in the cards for me but it’s something I would love to do."
