Will Arnett, Lea Michele, and More Talk Emmy Nominations!

Jul 8 2010 - 12:05pm

I'm already giving my two cents [1] about this morning's Emmy nominations [2], but I'm sure you're all more interested in what the actors and actresses had to say about their nods. As expected, funny people Will Arnett [3] and Tina Fey [4] threw in a few jokes, but everyone sounds grateful. All day, the stars have been sharing their reactions, and here's a few that they shared with us:

Will Arnett: "I'm Running Wilde with excitement. 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."

Lea Michele [5]: "I am beyond honored and thrilled to be nominated. 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."


Tina Fey: "This is great and exciting news. Also, this seems like an appropriate time for me to announce to NBC that I will not be renewing my contract . . . with my gym."

Sofia Vergara: "I was so excited to announce that my show was nominated but to hear I was nominated was a huge shock! I am so honored to be in the company of all these amazing women. I feel like I've already won!"

To read more from Jane Krakowski, Neil Patrick Harris [6], and others, just .

Neil Patrick Harris: "They announce the nominations so early in the morning, that this year I just stayed up all night and had an Emmy rave. So I must say, I'm deeply honored to be nominated, and also, my hair feels so amazing!"

Julia Louis-Dreyfus [7]: "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."

Rose Byrne: "I'm very flattered the Academy has recognized my performance. Being a part of Damages has been such a wonderful gift. 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."

Jane Krakowski: "This is such exciting news! It is such an honor to be included in this group of funny talented women! 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."

Elisabeth Moss [8]: It's amazing to be nominated again for an Emmy, and I'm so proud of the show's 17 nominations. We have come such a long way from our pilot, and we never get used to being nominated. It's like the first time all over again! It's a great boost for the crew who is working so hard on season 4, and there will be a lot of celebrating amid the work on set today!
