As you’re aware by now, the 2014 Emmy Awards nominees were announced this morning, and — although we never get what we want — I guess the least we can do is congratulate those who did get nominated by sharing their reactions.

Lena Dunham (who was nominated herself) on behalf of Adam Driver:
We are very proud of Adam. He’s a gift to our show and our lives! And he’s too classy 4 twitter. — Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) July 10, 2014

OPINION TIME: Ricky Gervais definitely deserves to be nominated for Derek, but I’m conflicted that it’s for “best actor in a comedy,” given the way he very poignantly and delicately plays a mentally disabled man. Chalk another one up to The Emmys Are Stupid.
SO humbled by this nomination. Not possible without extraordinary writers, ensemble and crew. Not possible at all. @VeepHBO
