Gilmore Girls forever! This mother and daughter on-screen duo are still as close as ever. We see how strong this bond is after Graham, 50, gave a shout out to Bledel, 35, after her first ever Emmy-Win at Sunday’s Creative Arts Emmy Awards, for her role in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale.
Bledel’s on-screen mom tweeted “THIS IS SO AWESOME. Congratulations and love! xL,” in response to the win.
THIS IS SO AWESOME.
Congratulations and love!

What makes Bledel’s win even more impressive are the other nominees she was up against How to Get Away with Murder‘s Cicely Tyson, Orange Is the New Black‘s Laverne Cox and The Leftovers‘ Ann Dowd, for the category for outstanding guest actress in a drama series.
Graham in a way has been a second mom to Bledel, as she watched her grow up from her earlier years when the show first aired October 2000. And over the course of seven years, seven seasons and 154 episodes she has seen her grow as a woman and an actress.
Since the show ended in 2007 fan’s have been waiting to see if the story of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore would continue on. And in November 2016 Netflix finally gave them what it was they’ve been waiting for, a Gilmore revival called revival, called Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
But will there be more Gilmore to be expected in the near future?
“I always said, while we were doing it, that I couldn’t see more episodes in that form. Five years from now do you have A Very Gilmore Christmas?” Graham said in June, about future projects.
She continues on to say, “Maybe, but there’s no reason anymore except enjoyment. And, actually, I think there’s far more risk to continue — you run the risk of disappointing people,”.
Hopefully we’ll see more of this mother and daughter pair. But it seems that even offscreen, Lauren Graham will never stop playing proud mom to Alexis Bledel. #MomandDaughter goals.
