Kicking off our list of reactions to their impressive Emmy Award nominations is Black-ish's Kenan Thompson. He was put up for not just one but two awards, and based on his social media thank you post, he was "Floored!" But, making sure to not let all the credit got to his head...

Thompson made sure to give a shout out to his co-stars of the show as well. One of them was Tracee Ellis Ross, who hopped on Instagram to thank her fans as soon as she heard the exciting news after leaving the gym. "Oh my goodness, gosh golly gee, I'm tickled," the actress gushed.

Jumping over to Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Michael Douglas was also named. His latest show, The Kominsky Method received 6 total nominations, with himself being given extra recognition. However, he made sure to shout out every member of the team that made his nomination possible.

Next up is Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and based on Kaley Cuoco's response to having her name on the nomination list was nothing short of what we would expect from The Flight Attendant actress. Cuoco was so excited about her first nomination dressed in jammies at home that she ended up in a smile puddle on the floor. 

No matter the category of the named stars, one thing has become abundantly clear: These Hollywood personas were just as excited as we were (if not more) to hear the big news! From Overall Comedy Series to Individual Awards, we are so excited to hear the results of these nominations soon.
