“Boardwalk Empire” star Steve Buscemi was feeling a bit under the weather when he woke the morning of the nominations, so his nod in the lead actor category for drama was a nice pick-me-up. “I’m happy for the show,” he said. “Anything that brings attention to the show is a nice thing.”

“Boardwalk” is shooting the tenth episode of its second season, which is scheduled to wrap in August and bow on HBO in September. Buscemi is looking forward to catching his breath. “I’ve got nothing lined up immediately afterward,” he said. “It’ll be nice to take some time off.”

The actor is keeping mum on second-season spoilers. All he’ll note is this: “There’s some really interesting new characters that are coming to the show that I’m really excited about. Other than that, I’m giving nothing away.”
