The fame of Jenna Ortega is undeniable! The young actress has been acting for a long time and remained a Disney face for years. However, her mainstream success took place overnight after she played the iconic character of Wednesday on Netflix. She stole millions of hearts without even blinking an eye, pulling off the sardonic vibe of the character. Videos featuring her went viral on social media, making her an internet sensation. And now she might take another huge leap in her career at the prestigious Emmy Awards coming this year.

Fans of the iconic superstar Angelina Jolie might know that she created the record for the youngest person nominated several times for Emmy in one year. And the actress was only 23 years old when she added this glorious title to her impressive resume. But it looks like the budding actress famous for her screams might steal it from her.

This can happen if the 20-year-old gets nominated under two categories at one time, as suggested by Goldderby. This includes Best Comedy Actress for Wednesday and Best Comedy Guest Actress for Saturday Night Live. Well, this would be a great achievement for the actor because her show has already created history on Netflix.
