Emmy nominees jump on social media to say thanks

No Comments

By Stephen Iervolino

(LOS ANGELES) — Emmy nominations were announced Thursday morning, and many of the stars who will be recognized for their work come September expressed their gratitude on social media.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, who was nominated for his guest-starring role on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, responded to his nomination with a quip reminiscent of something Larry David’s character on the comedy might say: “Pretty, pretty, pretty grateful.”

Alison Brie, who stars in Netflix’s GLOW, reacted to her show’s Best Comedy nomination by sharing a photo from set. “GLOW was nominated for an EMMY!! And so was our INCREDIBLE #BettyGilpin!!!” she captioned it. “So proud of all my girls and of our fantastic show.”

Tiffany Haddish, whose stint guest-hosting Saturday Night Live earned her her first Emmy nomination, added that she was “overjoyed.” Referencing her monologue — and a well-worn Alexander McQueen dress she wore, she noted: “I might even splurge for a new dress for this one!!” she tweeted. “Thank you everyone for your love and support! #sheready”

The 2018 Emmy Awards will broadcast live on NBC at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, Sept. 17. The ceremony will be hosted by Saturday Night Live stars Colin Jost and Michael Che.

Here are some other reactions:

Louie Anderson, who was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor for Baskets, tweeted, “I’m speechless!!! Thanks Everyone who voted @TheEmmys @FXNetworks @galifianakisz Jonathan Krisel @MarthaKelly3 @BasketsFX”

This is Us star Justin Hartley wrote, “A huge congrats to @MiloVentimiglia @SterlingKBrown and my entire @NBCThisisUs family on the @TheEmmys noms!!!! Lots of talent, hard work, and heart is poured into this incredible show. Couldn’t be prouder to be part of it!!”

Emmy winner Sterling K Brown, nominated again for This Is Us, posted a grateful video message, captioned with, “THANK YOU @TelevisionAcad ???? #Emmys #ThisIsUs”

John Legend, nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series category for Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, appropriately tweeted three praying hand emoji, adding, “thank you!!”

Incidentally, Legend is one step closer to joining the very exclusive club of 12 entertainers who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award, known as EGOT, with his nomination Thursday.

His wife Chrissy Teigen’s show, Lip Sync Battle, was also nominated this year.

Ricky Martin, nominated for Supporting Actor in a Limited Series for FX’s American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, tweeted “Yes yes yes!!!!!! I’m so happy and humbled about this nomination. I think my head is about to explode. Joy joy joy THIS IS CRAZY!!! Thank you @MrRPMurphy,”

Emmy nominee RuPaul issued the following statement after the announcement:

“Making ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ is a labor of love. The fact that members of the Television Academy have recognized that passion by nominating us for 12 Emmy’s is a true honor. It takes a village, people. I want to recognize the hard work and dedication of my partners at VH1 and World of Wonder, our dedicated cast and crew, and most of all, the amazing queens that help us celebrate the heart and soul of drag. Condragulations to our fellow nominees.”

No Comments

Threats & Impacts:


Less than 2 inches west of Highway 281, 1-3 inches for the I35 corridor, and 2-4 inches for the Coastal Plains. Isolated locations could receive 5-7 inches (mainly in the Coastal Plains).

Timing and Overview:

While there is a 20% chance for tropical cyclone development, significant strengthening of the tropical disturbance is not expected. This disturbance will bring a chance of decent rainfall to the area beginning in the eastern half today and spreading to most of South-Central Texas Monday-Wednesday. While significant flooding is not expected due to dry antecedent conditions and breaks in activity, minor flooding is possible in areas that pick up the isolated higher totals. The disturbance is expected to exit the region by Wednesday, but if it strengthens/slows down, the rainfall total forecast could increase slightly.
