“I think it’s more gratifying because we got used to not being nominated. We had come to terms with that, and there was no reason to expect this. I was so thrilled. There was no way I was watching. My cousin in New York, who’s up on all things showbiz, called me up while I was in bed with my dogs. My first call was to Kyle (Chandler), who had no voice. He was up at 4:30 in the morning shooting a football scene. This feels like an amazing honor.”
