In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, Ugly Betty star America Ferrera confesses that she’s overwhelmed by the boatload of Emmy nominations her hit show received. It hasn’t totally sunk in yet, the young actress, herself a nominee, reveals. For the show to be nominated for 11 Emmys is really exciting and it also sets the bar pretty high. America also admits to ET that she has an out-of-the-ordinary reaction to such good news. Whenever something really catches me off guard I always let out a little uncontrollable scream – out of nowhere. It happened to me at the Golden Globes. When they announced the show had won I just kind of screamed pretty loud and I didn’t notice I was doing it, until I was done. I did that again today! The complete interview airs tonight, July 19, on Entertainment Tonight.
