Nominees' Reactions

It's an honor just to be nominated. Right? Sure, that's what the canned response is, but according to Variety, these stars had more colorful reactions to their nominations:

Bill Lawrence, creator of Scrubs, said he'd forgotten the nominations were coming. "The phone rang this morning at 10 to 6, and we didn't answer it," he said. My wife and I -- she's pregnant -- got in a giant fight about how my stupid friends call too early in the morning. Then we listened to the message and we both felt like idiots."

With The Office nominated for top comedy series, exec producer Ben Silverman said he felt validated: "There are so many times in the entertainment industry when you look at your belly-button and think "Holy God, do I know what I'm doing?"

Regarding his own reaction, Silverman didn't mince words: "I am so psyched."

Shonda Rhimes, who was nommed for her work on Grey's Anatomy, said she never counted on a nomination. "I never expect anything," she said. "We're still at the place here where we're excited to be on the air and people are watching."

While many proclaimed themselves shocked to be nominated, Will Arnett, nominated for supporting actor in a comedy series for Arrested Development, said he was "shocked that the nominations came out on a Thursday. You would think they would do it on a marquee day like a Monday or a Friday."

Though the show was pulled, Arnett was grateful for the experience: "At the end of it all, to be nominated is sort of like icing on top of the icing on top of the icing on an already iced cake," he said.
