Chrissy Metz is no stranger to epic responses, so when she heard that she snagged one of This Is Uss 11 Emmy nominations for her portrayal of Kate Pearson, the sheer sweetness in her reaction should have come as no surprise. Alas, the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series nominee melted our hearts nonetheless.

As she described to Entertainment Weekly, after waking up early to watch Venus Williams win in Wimbledon鈥檚 semifinals round, Metz tried not to think about the Emmys at all. Then, it was all she could think about. Her first thought upon hearing her name 鈥 鈥淥h my god, guys!鈥 鈥 was quickly followed by 鈥淎re we sure that鈥檚 correct?鈥 and then, 鈥淢y mom鈥檚 going to be so relieved.鈥

Hours after nabbing the nomination, Metz was still buzzing. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 even know which earrings to put on right now. I don鈥檛 know!鈥 she told EW.

And her high wasn鈥檛 only a product of her own nomination. On costars Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia scoring nods in the Lead Actor category, Metz said, 鈥淲hen I heard Sterling and Milo鈥檚 name, I can鈥檛 even tell you 鈥 I was like, starting to tear up鈥 I think Milo for me was just like鈥 It really meant a lot.鈥 The actress was 鈥渂ummed,鈥 though, about Mandy Moore鈥檚 snub for Lead Actress.

Moore, for her part, was overjoyed for her castmates, tweeting, 鈥淚 am unbelieving proud of my #thisisus fam! Congrats @sterlingkb1, @ChrissyMetz, @MiloVentimiglia and #roncephasjones! Wowowowow!鈥

Meanwhile, Brown 鈥 who won an Emmy in 2016 for his role on American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson 鈥 sounds just as excited as Metz. 鈥淢aaaaan, I got the best job on TV! Receiving this nomination is just the cherry on top. Thank you, Television Academy!鈥 he said in part of a statement reacting to the honor.
