Actors love actors, y'all!

The nominations for the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations were announced on Wednesday, Dec. 11, and some of TV's biggest stars were recognized for their work, including Scandal's Kerry Washington, The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons, Don Cheadle and more.

From the heartfelt to the chuckle-inducing, we've got reactions from your favorite small screen stars about their big nominations...

Kerry Washington, Scandal: "I am truly grateful and proud to be a member of SAG/AFTRA and to be acknowledged by my peers in this way is an enormous honor."

Mayim Bialik, The Big Bang Theory: "This is an ‘lol' moment if ever there was one since there's not even a Supporting Actress category and it literally never occurred to me that I would be nominated for this ever ever ever. Ever.

And to be nominated by my peers no less!? It's a tremendous honor for my fellow actors to care enough for my work to let me share the nominee title with such fine leading ladies. I thought the SAG Awards were the ones I could totally chill out about but being nominated means ten times the anxiety and ten times the anticipation and a hundred times the gratefulness. Thank you for this honor!

But seriously, are you sure there's not some mistake!? Aaaahhhhh!"

Don Cheadle, House of Lies: "It's always a kick to be recognized for your stuff, especially when it's by the people who know how the sausage is made. Now, please watch our damn show!!"

Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory: "Thank you to the Screen Actors Guild for the most wonderful wake-up call this morning! It's an enormous honor to be recognized by your fellow actors. It is especially meaningful to be nominated alongside the rest of the Big Bang cast, an incredible group of people to work with every day for the last seven years. The way our characters have been embraced by audiences is a testament to the genius writing behind Big Bang."

Michael Douglas, Behind the Candelabra: "I am thrilled to be nominated by my fellows actors alongside Matt, Jeremy, Rob and Al."

Rob Lowe, Killing Kennedy:  "It was an honor to play JFK and even more of one to be included in this list of amazing actors and friends."

Ty Burrell, Modern Family: "Being a part of a show like Modern Family was a daydream to me a few years ago. That I get to do it with this particular group of people is an even crazier stroke of luck. The ensemble nomination is something we take great pride in. That and our cat-like agility. Thank you to the Screen Actors Guild for recognizing me and our show."

Holly Hunter, Top of the Lake: "This was the best wakeup call I've received all year! I am floored. To be honored by my fellow actors, people who understand, is really special. This project was precious to us for many reasons, the main one being the genius and humanity of Jane Campion. I'm also thrilled for the Sundance Channel, as they were true supporters and advocates of this series from the start."

Elisabeth Moss, Top of the Lake: "A SAG Award nomination is so special to an actor because it's from your peers, the people you work with and admire. I am so beyond flattered and humbled to be included in such incredible company in this category. I'm especially happy for my brilliant costar Holly Hunter. I am so damn lucky to even know her, let alone share a single frame with her."

Chris Lloyd, Modern Family: "Unbelievably delighted for our cast. They are a rarity in Hollywood, people who put their individual careers second to the good of the team, and it is fantastic to see them recognized for being what they are, the best team on television."

Steve Levitan, Modern Family: "We've always felt so lucky to have this incredibly-gifted cast -- eleven actors and not a weak link among them. We're thrilled their peers have recognized them with this honor and we're relieved that now we won't have to explain to young Aubrey that some years this doesn't happen."

Helena Bonham Carter, Burton and Taylor: "I am so proud to receive a SAG nom. Playing Elizabeth Taylor was both terrifying and the best fun I've had in years. The respect of my peers is the one I crave most. I was sick today but suddenly my temperature has gone down.."

The 2014 SAG Awards will air live on Saturday, Jan. 18 at 8 p.m. (ET) and 5 p.m. (PT) on TNT and TBS.
