"To the Television Academy—how dare you. I really can't stress enough how much of a threat this nomination is to my current quarantine brand of pasta and sad. In the Time Before, being born with a healthy protective emotional wall missing meant I got to channel that into pretend time in exchange for health insurance and claps. Until today, apparently here in the apocalypse, these skills were about as meaningful as a worm's hymn in a canyon. I'd like to thank the cast and crew, and the Academy, and seasonal depression, and honestly Nathan Lane, and before this nomination phoenixes me out of mediocrity and I explode into ribbons just real quick the cops who killed Breonna Taylor still have not been arrested."
"What a morning waking up to this news! I am so proud of my @themorningshow family. This team worked so, so hard to make the best show we possibly could, and I am truly honored to be a part of it. Thanks for this acknowledgment and congratulations to EVERYONE. Now, I'm just gonna have to figure out what MASK I'M GONNA WEAR."
"I'm honestly speechless, my heart is just overflowing with love and gratitude. I'm so incredibly honored to work beside the talented people that I get to call family. I am a small piece of a big beautiful puzzle and I'm so proud of all of you. Thank you to everyone out there who's watched and given our show life, thank you @samlev00 @hbo @a24 for everything and @televisionacad for this beautiful acknowledgment, thank you, thank you, thank you. We out here Emmy nominated y'all!!"
"I am honored to be nominated for an Emmy for the 6th year in a row alongside my talented co-star Tracee Ellis Ross and the costume department and hair team. We are proud of the stories we have been able to tell on black-ish and given the current climate in which we all live, our voices need to be amplified. I'd like to thank ABC for renewing our show for a full season and for keeping us on the fall line up. I also want to congratulate Live In Front Of A Studio Audience: All In the Family and Good Times for their nominations. It was a thrill to work again with that cast and crew in particular the great Norman Lear and my friend Jimmy Kimmel!"
"During these very uncertain times it is moving to be reminded of the impact of telling stories about such brave and fearless women. And to be in the company of such talented women is a great honor. Thank you to Hulu, MGM and the cast and crew."
"Bring a part of Mrs. America was a fantastic experience. I so wanted to work with this incredible group of people, that I went out and fought for this role. As Betty Friedan said, 'No woman gets an orgasm from shining the kitchen floor.' The Academy's recognition of my portrayal is thrilling, bordering on orgasmic. Thank you."
"Thank you, Television Academy, for honoring my work in Mrs. America. What a thrill! It is a joy to be in the company of these incredible women. And it was an honor and education to play Bella Abzug – what a smart, powerful woman. I'm indebted to our great writers, directors and fantastic cast – and all those sensational hats! I'm so happy! Yippee!"
"Thank you to the Television Academy, my entire Hollywood family, and to Ryan Murphy for giving me my television debut. My heart is full. I'm proud to see so many Black artists nominated this year. It gives me hope that systemic change in our entertainment industry is not only possible, it's imminent. As an artist, it takes a lot of faith to trust that there is space for the stories I want to tell and that the dreams in my heart are tangible. Today was a reminder that seeing is believing and everything is possible."
"Thank you to the Television Academy. It is a huge honor to be nominated amongst such great documentaries. And many thanks to our amazing team!"
"If a role is a blue print for what we do, I have to say it's Ellen Kincaid who possessed the big goodwill for all, the big heart and the Moxie, as Ryan Murphy would put it, to capture the special feeling that would earn this nomination. So I'm grateful SHE is who I got to play. In this once in a century moment, goodwill is our real wealth. And in this year's bountiful crop of great performances, it's a real feather in my cap to be included in this notice from the Academy, who have often been good to me. Hollywood's designers, writers, directors and my fellow actors were all in an excited top gear this season and it shows. Certainly a glowing highlight of my career that came as a gift."
"What a wonderful surprise! I had a great time on this episode, and this nomination is the icing on what was an already delicious cake. Thanks you, Academy, too, for nominating me in a category with some of the greatest comediennes alive. What company!"
"We are beyond excited, humbled and proud to receive these seven Emmy nominations for Queer Eye, and couldn't be happier that the Fab Five have been recognized in the Outstanding Host category! We set out to bridge divides with empathy and joy and the recognition of that work by fans across the globe and the Academy is truly rewarding. Thank you!"
"It's so exciting to see the nominations knowing how hard the entire team worked to bring The Mandalorian and the Child to life. I'm just so happy for everyone involved. There are so many great stories to tell in the galaxy far, far away. The nominations for The Mandalorian and Star Wars Resistance prove what the fans already know. Star Wars is forever. Congratulations to everyone, may the Force be with you."
"I'm so grateful to the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, to everyone on The Handmaid's Tale team here and in Toronto, and especially to the heart and soul of the operation, Lizzie Moss. I can't wait for the day when we can all get back to the joyous, difficult work of telling stories together. In the meantime, in the name of all that is holy, please make sure you are registered to vote on November 3rd. Check your status today at vote.org. Stay safe."
"I am incredibly proud and grateful to collaborate on this show with all the talent and support you could imagine and to be nominated by the academy alongside so many actors that I esteem is a real privilege."
"This season was particularly meaningful to all of us — from producers to chefs and judges to our incredible crew — not only because it was All Stars and allowed us to showcase such an extraordinary level of talent, creativity and diversity by our returning chefs, but in the midst of a pandemic that has challenged the restaurant industry physically, emotionally and economically on so many levels, Top Chef Season 17 provided a moment of hope, comfort, triumph and solidarity, for us and our viewers alike. It aired as a weekly reminder to support and take care of each other, share our cultures and our tables, and be true to ourselves. I'm immensely proud of this season and grateful to be part a show that has proven its ability for innovation, entertainment and integrity, year over year over year."
"After 18 years the show is still going strong and it's always special that our peers in the academy continue to recognize our contribution to great TV."
"I was in the middle of a weekly zoom cooking class with people from all over the globe, including my father who doesn't actually cook anything, he just gets a kick out of watching his daughter and granddaughter make a mess in the kitchen. We were making a cheesecake, which requires the exact weight of a toddler in cream cheese , in case you were wondering. Right as we were crushing cookies to make the crust, my father let out a yelp. Thought maybe he'd accidentally sat upon his sack, but no, it was a Google Alert! Glowing, he proudly announced that I'd been nominated for an Emmy. While I am delighted and thrilled to be nominated (and in such good company) I must admit that the greatest part about it is seeing my 85-year old father, weary from Covid-captivity, smiling and happy and hopeful. Thank you to everyone who nominated me, it's the only gift I could give my parents that they won't return."
"I am thrilled and humbled to be nominated this morning with all of these incredible women whom I admire so much. Especially my dear friend and partner in crime Christina Applegate. You're my person. I feel so fortunate to collaborate everyday with all of the incredible women who run this show. Liz Feldman, thank you for your genius and for giving life to 'Jen and Judy.' What a wild ride. This show is truly a team effort and I am so grateful to everyone involved. Especially our hardworking cast and crew. This is a celebration of everyone's work today. Love and congrats to all."
"I had such a great time playing this extraordinary part in Black Mirror. Thank you so much to the Television Academy for honouring me in this way, and to Damson, Topher, Charlie, Annabel, James and the gang for being such brilliant collaborators."
"What an amazing day, I am so excited for my whole Succession family! Playing Greg is so damn fun, and I'm deeply thankful and honored to be recognized for it. I'm going to drink a rosé that is 'not my favorite' to celebrate!"
"I am incredibly honored to be recognized by the Emmys this morning for a project I'm not only proud of, but one that is so necessary and important in these trying times. Congrats to the rest of the cast and crew of #FreeRayshawn and congrats to Quibi and Sony TV!"
