Emmy Nominations: Amy Schumer, Tatiana Maslany and More Celebrate on Twitter

Are you one of the many who are excited that “Orphan Black’s” Tatiana Maslany was finally nominated for an Emmy? So is fellow nominee Amy Schumer.

When Emmy nominations were announced on Thursday, TV stars took to Twitter in force to celebrate, thanking fans and even breaking out the champagne (which is acceptable, given the Emmys’ later announcement time this year).

Schumer congratulated fan favorite Maslany for finally nabbing a nom, showing excitement for the fact that she was “#notsnubbed.”

Schumer also took a second to celebrate her nominations for “Inside Amy Schumer,” including lead actress in a comedy and best variety sketch series. Pizza and beer were involved.

Ricky Gervais commemorated his nomination for lead actor in a limited series or movie for “Derek Special” by popping some champagne, as did “American Horror Story” showrunner Ryan Murphy for the horror anthology’s 20 nominations.

Viola Davis, who received a nod for lead actress in a drama for “How to Get Away With Murder,” noted the diversity in this year’s nominations.

Kevin Spacey, nominated again for lead actor in a drama for Netflix’s “House of Cards,” congratulated the rest of the cast who were given noms in acting categories: his TV wife Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Reg E. Cathy and Rachel Brosnahan.

“Orange Is the New Black’s” Laverne Cox congratulated her nominated cast members, including Emmy first-timer Pablo Schreiber.

She also called out “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” actor Tituss Burgess for breaking into the supporting actor in a comedy race.

Representing for musicians, Katy Perry thanked a certain dancer in her performance (which would go on to become famous on the Internet) for her nomination for her Super Bowl halftime show.

And even with all the celebration, certain snubs were called out. “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” actor Luke Mitchell questioned why “Daredevil’s” Vincent D’Onofrio was left out, and Abbi Jacobson, with a throwback to a sketch on “Broad City,” lamented that her Comedy Central show wasn’t nominated.
