The 57-year-old actor added, "(Director) Ben Winston did a great job and all of his crew. That`s not exactly the Emmy I was looking for. I`m being honest with you."

Cox went on to say she was "happy to be a part" of the `Friends` reunion, but that the Emmy she received is not the kind she was saying she wanted when she recently spoke to Howard Stern. "I`m so happy to be a part of it. I`m so thrilled that I got to do it onstage back at that same studio, the same Stage 24, with those incredible people that I love so much. And I`m so thrilled, but that Emmy (nomination)] really belongs to Ben Winston," Cox told Entertainment Weekly.

"So yes, I`m so happy. But when I was on Howard Stern, I wasn`t talking about that."

Cox had earlier admitted that it did "hurt" her "feelings" to be the only cast member who hadn`t earned an Emmy nomination for `Friends`.

"When every single cast member was nominated but me, it definitely hurt my feelings. I was happy for everybody, and then when it was finally like, `Oh, I`m the only one?` It hurt," she had said.

Cox was the only member of the `Friends` cast that had not been nominated for an Emmy. 

Jennifer Aniston landed five, Lisa Kudrow earned six and Matt LeBlanc garnered three. David Schwimmer received one nomination.
