The 64th 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:
Jimmy Fallon, nominated for Outstanding Variety Series, "So happy to get nominated! Can't wait to get back to the Late Night office and celebrate! But first I gotta leave this theatre and change out of this Batman costume."
Alec Baldwin, nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, "30 Rock": "As the show enters its last season, I'm gratified to be nominated again by the Academy."
Julianna Margulies, nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, "The Good Wife": "I am so honored to be nominated for The Good Wife. The Academy has been very supportive of me over the years and my appreciation is boundless."
Steve Buscemi, nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, "Boardwalk Empire": "There are so many amazing performances this year by actors I really admire, that it means a lot to me to being included among them."
Bill Hader, nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, "Saturday Night Live": "It's a great honor, though there should be parentheses next to my name with all of the 'SNL' writers. And now I have to kiss up to the cast members of 'Modern Family' in hopes that they pull a Ving Rhames and give me their award when they win."
