The 65th Primetime Emmy Award nominations were announced on Thursday morning, and this year's nominees are over the moon with excitement! Here's what the stars had to say:
Sofia Vergara, nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for "Modern Family": I better not finish this cheesecake then.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for "Modern Family": I'm thrilled and honestly surprised by this nomination today! I just got off the phone with Eric Stonestreet who was the first to congratulate me. Congrats to Ed, Ty, Sofia, Julie, Chris Lloyd, Steve Levitan, Nathan Lane and our amazing director Gail Mancuso on their nominations as well. We are all so grateful and lucky to have this job and days like this make for an embarrassment of riches. I'm also thrilled to see two of my favorite actors, Tony Hale and Adam Driver receive first time nominations.
Don Cheadle, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for "House Of Lies": Given all the hilarious film work I've done, from Traffic to Crash to Flight, it's nice to finally be recognized as the comic genius I am. Thank you, Academy member.
Edie Falco, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for "Nurse Jackie": It's a huge honor - genuinely exciting to be among these women in my category. These are actresses I've watched and loved for years.
Jimmy Kimmel, Outstanding Variety Series for "Jimmy Kimmel Live": It just goes to show you - good things happen to bad people.
Mayim Bialik, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for "Big Bang Theory": I am legitimately in shock and beyond honored to be nominated for the second year in a row alongside the inspirational Jim Parsons and our fantastically written show. I can't begin to express how shocked I am to be nominated with such an impressive group of women. Wow. Now I have to find a dress.
