Reactions to the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations announced Thursday in Los Angeles:
"I think I'll set a trend here and we'll see a lot of people wearing pajamas next year." — Jimmy Kimmel, who wore pajamas to announce the Emmy nominations live on TV and whose show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" was nominated for outstanding variety program.
"I have had the shriekiest morning of my life. I literally feel like I got asked to the prom and engaged and told I was going to the moon all in one day. Not to be too dramatic." — Lena Dunham, nominated for writing, directing and starring in the comedy "Girls."
"Zooey and I are coordinating outfits right now. We're trying to figure out what we're gonna wear. We obviously don't wanna wear the same thing. Can you imagine how embarrassing that would be? We want to let you know, 'Yes, we're on the same show.' There might be some coordination between the two outfits. We just want to make sure they're showstoppers." — Max Greenfield, nominated for supporting actor for "New Girl." Lead actress Zooey Deschanel was also nominated.
"I'm glad I'm working today so I get a chance to see everybody, so that the nominations are still fresh. I think it will lift everybody's spirits today." — Steve Buscemi, nominated for lead actor in a drama series for "Boardwalk Empire," which garnered 12 nominations.
"It's a great honor, though there should be parentheses next to my name with all of the 'SNL' writers. And now I have to kiss up to the cast members of 'Modern Family' in hopes that they pull a Ving Rhames and give me their award when they win." — "Saturday Night Live" star Bill Hader, nominated for supporting actor in a comedy series. Rhames famously gave his 1998 Golden Globe Award to fellow nominee Jack Lemmon.
