Melissa McCarthy joined Joshua Jackson as one of the Emmy Nomination hosts this morning, so she was on live TV when she learned she was nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Mike & Molly! And Melissa was definitely shocked by the nod!

And luckily, she did!

Melissa is up against TV vets Laura Linney (The Big C), Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation), Martha Plimpton (Raising Hope) and Tina Fey (30 Rock) looking to unseat last year's winner, Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie) in the category.
