The 2010 Emmy Award nominations have been announced and now the stars are showing their appreciation!
Emmy Award nominees shared with PopSugar their reactions to being nominated this year.
Some of the comedians in the nominees couldn’t say thank you without throwing in a couple jokes!
“They announce the nominations so early in the morning, that this year I just stayed up all night and had an Emmy rave,” Neil Patrick Harris said. “So I must say, I’m deeply honored to be nominated, and also, my hair feels so amazing!”
“This is great and exciting news,” Tina Fey shared making a crack at her fellow NBC stars. “Also, this seems like an appropriate time for me to announce to NBC that I will not be renewing my contract . . . with my gym.”
“I’m Running Wilde with excitement,” Will Arnett joked to Popsugar. “I can recall all the times I thought, ‘Man, it’s Tuesday at 9:30, I hope 10 years from now I can say I have a show this fall, on Fox,’ and be referencing something I’m proud of.”
“This is such exciting news! It is such an honor to be included in this group of funny talented women!” Jane Krakowski exclaimed. “I am indebted to Tina Fey and the greatest comedy writing team on television. I am going to celebrate by eating a piece of cheese. Just kidding designers, I promise, no cheese will cross these lips or hips until after the ceremony.”
“I was relieved to see that the Academy spelled my name right and as I am now a free agent, Lebron [James] and I will be announcing our plans later this evening,” Julia Louis-Dreyfus announced.
But others went for more serious approach!
“I am beyond honored and thrilled to be nominated,” Lea Michele told Popsugar. “The other women in this category are extraordinary actresses that I respect and admire. To be a part of Glee is a dream come true and the fact that the Academy acknowledged us in this way makes that dream even more surreal.”
“I was so excited to announce that my show was nominated but to hear I was nominated was a huge shock!” Sofia Verara shared. “I am so honored to be in the company of all these amazing women. I feel like I’ve already won!”
“I’m very flattered the Academy has recognized my performance. Being a part of Damages has been such a wonderful gift,” Rose Byrne explained. “I’m grateful to Glenn, Tate, KZK, FX, Sony, the writers and all my fellow cast mates for their support. I have loved every minute of playing Ellen Parsons and there’s no one else I’d rather spar with than the incomparable Glenn Close.”
Congratulations to all of the nominees!
