Menna Shalaby became the first Egyptian and Arab actress to be nominated for an American Emmy Award, which is given for series and television programs, for a work of art in Arabic.

Shalaby was nominated for the Best Actress Award for her role in the series “Every Week on a Friday”, which was produced last year and consists of ten episodes.

Menna Shalaby commented on her nomination, saying: “My presence on the list of candidates is in itself a surprise and a source of happiness and pride, and if I do not receive the award, I am satisfied with the mere nomination.”

In an interview with the BBC, she added that the role she played was the most exhausting of her roles during the past five years, as she was looking for how to enter the mind of the girl who represented her character and turned into a serial killer.
