Alexis Bledel won her first Emmy Award for The Handmaid's Tale almost a year after she made her return to TV as arguably our favorite character, Rory Gilmore, in Netflix's Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
Being the amazing Gilmore Girls mom she's always been, Lauren Graham (who plays Rory's mother, Lorelai Gilmore) took to Twitter to immediately congratulate Alexis for her win. "THIS IS SO AWESOME. Congratulations and love! xL," she wrote.
THIS IS SO AWESOME.
Congratulations and love!

Bledel won Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series. Other nominees in her category included Cicely Tyson for How to Get Away With Murder, Laverne Cox for Orange Is the New Black, Shannon Purser for Stranger Things, Alison Wright for The Americans and Ann Dowd for The Leftovers.
It's nice to see nothing has changed between Lauren and Alexis and they're still supporting each other in their careers. Once a Gilmore girl, always a Gilmore girl.
