Jane Krakowski Thought She Was Being Punk’d With Her Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Emmy Nomination.

The old saying goes: fifth time’s the charm. WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Here’s the latest on the 67th annual Primetime Emmy nominations announced Thursday in West Hollywood, California, by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (all times local): Krakowski’s nomination Thursday for her role in “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” came during a family outing in the Hamptons.“My dream date would be me and my cat and my girlfriend,” Gervais, who just scored an Emmy nomination for his role in Netflix’s Derek, tells EW. “And they’d wear matching dresses.Her turn as the pill-popping housewife Jacqueline Voorhes in the Netflix series “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” earned Krakowski a Supporting Actress in a Comedy nomination on Wednesday alongside seven other actresses, including last year’s winner Allison Janney of “Mom,” and Julie Bowen of “Modern Family,” Mayim Bialik of “The Big Bang Theory,” Niecy Nash of “Getting On,” Kate McKinnon of “Saturday Night Live,” Gaby Hoffmann of “Transparent” and “Veep’s” Anna Chlumsky. “It’s an incredible group of ladies,” the actress said in an interview with TheWrap. “I’m actually quite surprised that I’m one of them.” Krakowski: I honestly thought I was being “Punk’d,” I was completely in shock.

The actress initially thought only the show had been nominated, but a flood of phone calls informed her she had received an acting nomination. “After I hung up the phone, I ran to tell my son, who’s 4, and he was like, ‘What does that mean, mommy?’ He didn’t know anything,” Krakowski said. “He looked at me like, ‘Can you play now?’ So I will be spending the rest of the day playing with my son and trying to explain what an Emmy is to him.” To raise awareness for her “Eat Brighter” campaign, Mrs. Vulture talked with Krakowski about getting her fifth Emmy nomination (the previous four all came for 30 Rock) and how her 4-year-old son had no idea why she was so excited. (I mean, he’s 4.) Well, I am delighted and surprised by the way my day went. I got a call right after I saw that “Kimmy” got nominated for Outstanding Comedy, which I was so thrilled about, and I thought they were calling to tell me that it got nominated for that.

This got really weird.” Sadly, he’ll probably have to leave his cat at home — but it should be a good night anyway: This marks his second time being nominated for Derek, a show he calls “tiny and quirky and such a labor of love.” “I know I come across as this cynic who laughs at Hollywood and fame and awards shows,” Gervais says. “But it’s still a genuinely warm feeling, your peers saying, ‘We quite like that. Obama competed with Big Bird and past “Billy on the Street” guest Elena in a supermarket contest called “Ariana Grande or Eating a Carrot?” “Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis: Brad Pitt”; “Childrens Hospital”; “Key & Peele Presents Van And Mike: The Ascension”; “Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show Starring Katy Perry.” “I will celebrate by jumping up and down at every alley and every step of the way in Paramount Studios,” Tambor said in a phone interview after the Amazon series racked up 11 nominations. “I will make a spectacle of myself in hugging anyone.” “(‘Transparent’ writer) Jill Soloway and the role of Maura Pfefferman has changed my life. I think I’m going to have to go take an aspirin for my heart to calm down.” Krakowski, her costar Tittuss Burgeess, the show itself, co-creator Tina Fey and guest star Jon Hamm all picked up Emmy nominations on Thursday, July 16. Not only because it’s one of the great and signal roles, but the responsibility of playing this beautiful transgender woman.” Tambor has been shooting some emotional scenes lately, including one Wednesday with several transgender actors. Pretty good for the show that lingered in limbo until NBC announced it was moving to Netflix with a two-season commitment. “I’m so excited for everybody that got nominated.

Derek was previously counted as a comedy series — the same category Big Bang Theory is in — but this year switched over to the limited series category. “It will be nice to lose to someone other than Jim Parsons this year,” Gervais says. Tituss was the first person I got to speak with and before I saw his name come up on my caller ID, and before he said hello, or I said hello, all I said was, “Oh.

But when he finds out that Parsons surprisingly didn’t nab a nomination this year, he’s a bit more regretful. “Awww, I should have stayed in that category!” he says, laughing. “I should have lost to Louis C.K. for a change.” There’s been so many, but I would say one of my favorite scenes — because I never thought I would get to do this anywhere — were the flashbacks to my childhood. This year’s Emmy Awards is the last shot for “Mad Men,” which ended its run after seven seasons earlier this year. “Modern Family’s” seventh season debuts later this year.

After ‘s second season wraps, Krakowski is heading back to Broadway in She Loves Me, a musical that was the inspiration for You’ve Got Mail. “I’ve been wanting to get back to the Broadway community for a while, but I haven’t been able to find a show that fits exactly in the slot…It’s an old-fashioned charming little…It’s a little jewel box of a musical. Fox’s “Empire,” which was a sensation upon its premiere last winter, wasn’t nominated for best drama, and star Terrence Howard didn’t get a best actor nod. It’s a great little show with a wonderful score.” “I’m still in shock, I’m a little bit like, I can’t even believe I’m having these phone calls today,” she said of her fifth career nomination. “It’s great.” Top categories will be announced in a five-minute webcast by Uzo Aduba and Cat Deeley, who will soon take the stage that is flanked with two giant Emmy Award statuettes. Reporters grabbed last-minute bites of pastries and sips of coffee before the announcement, while press packets with details about the nominees were parked on a cart outside the theater and closely watched by academy personnel.
